I thought that there was no parking allowed on the hallowed Chinese paving slabs!
Vintage Triumphs were famous for leaking oil all over the place ;-)

It would appear that it took a bunch of motorcyclists to show the people of Salisbury what this square of slabs is actually for. "An Event". Now we will just have to see who else is willing to stage more events on the site and make use of it.

That's why MAG had marshal's placing environmental mats under any offending machinery!!! I take it that KarlMarx never made the effort and inspected the bike show for him/herself as there was a huge variety of bikes, mopeds, scooters, racing bikes Choppers, Custom bikes, Harley Davidsons Ducatis, etc. and styles from all eras... with an estimated 2000+ bikes present and people from all ages and walks of life and a yet NO trouble! PS the Slabs are infact Blocks!!!... We the Tax payer could of saved thousands if only they cut them in half... In Ningbo, China the Slabs are 40mm thick... I have been there and seen it!!! It's about time we had some events in Salisbury to promote LEISURE time rather than letting the Out of Centre Shopping Stores Open on Sundays and also allowing them build on the flood plans...

No, I attended mass on palm Sunday. The noise of the Harley Davidsons drowned out the priest on a few occasions but, we didn't mind ;-)

Like the Priest said (or was it a Vicar, Reverend, Parson, Lay Preacher, Bishop, don't think it was the Pope!) previously they only have "Tumble Weed blowing past the Guild Hall Square as an audience!" at least the Cristian Bikers were there giving their support. Don't forget I was also there by the war memorial remembering our fallen dead... they did not die in vain they have allowed us to live in a free and democratic society and although I am not a religious believer I do have Strong Morals and Honest unlike some of the Political Representatives from all Parties of this "Great Britain" of ours! One could easily ramble on criticising... It’s always harder to get off ones bottom and do something for the good of others... and enjoy life! I'm off as I got MANY other things to do... Love and Peace to you all...
