    Not guilty your honour, I was only 18 in '79 riding a 250 super dream.

    Ah lots of memories and quite a few old faces, some who's names I can't pull back. No dome tents, no baseball caps, Red Baron scarves, no speed cameras.....I remember when we were all fields....

    (quick edit - natty hat, just found out it is Geoff "Captain Confusion" Bowering!)

    Re: Late 1970's Photos

    My brother (ex-Bonnie man) has been digging out some seventies pix he took at club events, should get some more in due course but here are a couple from the first (went back in '84) Brighton Super Rally in 1979. There were definately more Electras around in clubs back then and the continentals tended to have the most lavish. The chrome and green one is from now disbanded Riders Club Berlin, the Frank Frazatta one I think was dutch. More to follow.

    And the little Aermacchi parked among the "big" bikes too - nice one!

    Right, found the '79 Brighton Super Rally pix - I did warn you about how many Glides there were back then! (spot the 1928 J model in background)

    Even shots of any other bike has FLH's in background! This lovely U series machine might be french and the Forty-five should appeal to Kev and Vince. (one photo I haven't included actually has a dome tent in background, now one can't spot a ridge tent anymore!)Click image for larger version.
