Pioneer Run

20th March 2005 - Sunbeam MCC

My girlfriend and I were parent-sitting my father, as my mother had broken her hip on holiday, so we took him to Brighton to see the old bikes. He used to ride a Vincent Meteor, amongst others.

Unfortunately, as it took a while to get him ready, and parking the car was difficult, it was nearly midday when we got to the sea front. As this was his usual meal time, he insisted on having his fish & chips there and then, which meant we didn't get to the bike area until everyone that survived the trip had arrived, and many of them had packed up and left.

There were still a few bikes there, some of which he seemed to remember.
