Okay so last years review was far from complementary. This year was slightly different in that there where far less traders selling crap. I have to say this is a good move in my opinion as I thought the show was about presenting the latest machines and products to us and not selling redundant stock.
I ride an eighties monster the Z1300 and god do I wish I could crow bar one of these into it. (above)
As a custom fan I had to take loads of pictures of the various custom stands as these where the only ones of any note. Many of the bikes below have been featured in BSH and won loads of silver wear at the show's like Buldog and Rock and Blues.
Harley's stand was a little disappointing showing no flare for the modern days tastes of the custom rider.
What I did notice was that the lesser known manufacturers seemed to have done their homework and where targeting us a little better than the big boy's who focused on the bland plastic or 70's retro look. Here are the bikes from Victory.
As plastics go I thought this to be a little special.
A NCC bike.
Here's Mr Rossi's bike, well this years bike. I guess next years will be a shiny Yamaha.

Here's a few other machines.
As per usual Carole Nash had the best stand with the best bikes. Allan Milliards V12 was here.
I was impressed with Triumphs offerings, mind you when a company say's do you want a race? You've got to give them some respect.
