Wonderful pic of the bike in the water. Reminiscent of pictures on the wall of the local motorbike shop run by an ex trials rider , Karl Pugh in the late 50s. Lots of pics of him, cloth cap on backwards on the Scottish Trials etc.

Long gone now but I can still hear his greeting of "Hello old chap" !

I think I did manage to date it, from another pic where I could see the tax disc. Guessing I took them mid nineties, but can't remember :)

                   Think the photo of me in the water could be very late nineties.

               Not sure.

               It was taken at our Yearly annual One day West Riding Trial.

               We do about 35/40 miles on and of tarmac.

               Riders come from far afield to compete....We get just short of hundred entries for the one day. :thumbs:  :thumbs:  :thumbs:
