Its Spring. Its Poole. Its a Tuesday. These three things really only mean one thing. Poole Bike Night is back on. The first Poole Bike Night of the year is always a nice occasion as it gives many riders an excuse to get out on the bike on a Tuesday evening.
Last year we were in the middle of a fantastic spell of weather and this year, despite a heavy shower in the afternoon, the skies were blue, the temperatures were reasonable and the atmosphere was positive and the chips were hot.
Now, I have a confession. I went to bike night in my car. That's right ladies and gentleman, this biker went to the first Poole Bike Night of the year as a spectator rather than a participant. The reason? I needed to get something from the supermarket. How very middle aged of me.
As expected there was a good variety of bikes on show, from weird stretched out Labrettas, to the usual Harley crowd and Sportsbike riders of the South Coast. My favourite bike was this though. A nicely modded Triumph T955i.
