Stoke Goldington Steam Rally and Country Show May 08

Filed under: Uncategorized — Dougyt @ 7:50 pm

Delboy made the trip up to Milton Keynes, sad to say in a car not on one of his bikes, to visit us, and take in the Stoke Goldington Steam Rally and Country Show. This is a big steam rally held a few miles from Milton Keynes, which shows a lot of various vehicles in addition to the tractors and traction engines you’d expect from the name of the show.

In true Delboy tradition he forgot to bring a camera, so luckily my wife (his daughter in law) had brought ours along. Before too long Delboy was whining that his feet hurt, his legs ached and he hadn’t seen the old bikes and cars yet, so we had to take him along to find them. Then he pointed out which ones were to be photographed.

So here are the Delboy selections from Stoke Goldington Steam Rally May 08

BSA in the entrance to the motorcycle section

This pair of BSA’s stood either side of the entrance to the classic vehicles section of the show.

A red BSA

Ariel Square Four

The Ariel Square Four above reminded Delboy of his brothers bikes as it had an oil leak or two, and was not in showroom condition.

Black BSA

Another BSA, we were beginning to see a pattern forming ;-)

one mans junk is another mans golden find

We thought someone had raided Delboys shed, but it appears there’s another horder of old junk (or as Delboy calls it memorabilia of a bygone era). Del has accused me and my brother of losing petrol cans like the ones in this picture when we were younger and used them to fetch petrol for our field bikes. Of course we didn’t lose them, he just needs to blame someone for his carelessness.

an old motorcycle

Almost captured Delboy himself in this picture of an old British bike, but not quite, not sure about the hand on hip pose though definitely a bit suspect if you ask us.

All in all a good show, and a great day was had by all of us including Phoebe, Dels granddaughter who lets grandad spoil her for the day to keep her quiet while we watch the displays and look around the old bikes and cars :-)
