Just tripped over this on YouTube, Chester being my home town.

Makes me feel homesick slightly (yet young, slim and hirstute...)

Enjoy.

Very cool. Don't they know how dangerous it is riding on the wrong side of the road though?

You know any of these guys... er blokes?

You get used to things being arse-about-face soon enough. We have to confuse Johnny Foreigner somehow... having weird traffic is our #1 tourist attraction!

I know a goodly few of them, Ginger has been around for years, he organises the Easter Egg run to Manchester every March, that's what people regard as the rally season 'starting pistol'. I think something like that would be good here, tho I have no idea of how many scoots there are in these cities (and by that I mean vespas and lammy, plus derivatives thereof).

Anyway - I know Steve on boring PX, John W (tattoo mid life crisis man) Colin the gay policeman (doing the warden job on the runout, in the sensible yellow jacket), Craig (with nice blue TV175), Ketch (black GP), quite a few of them now I look closer... but this of course is useless information, the answer to your question is yes. :)

I miss the Big Scene, the Big Rallies (not that I've been to many, but Tenby was bril the 2 times I went, and and EuroLambretta 2000 was a good one). I'd love to be over early for an Easter Egg Run, and really miss the small Irish runs and especially the old Dublin rideout we used to do in October.

Driving on the correct side of the road is easy on bike. Left/right turns are the hardest to get used to, but on a bike it all feels natural soon enough.
