Despite it being a tad annoying, I just rode around the corner and waiting the 10mins by Pizza Express making full use of their wi-fi. I know - cheeky. Once the bikes were officially allowed back in, I parked up...right where I had been before. Bit of a pointless exercise, although I did message Carolina while I waited, so far from a total loss.
One of the many reasons I like the Quay so much is the sheer variety of bikes on show. Every sub culture is present and for me, the best bike tonight was a really fine example of a Jelly mould Honda CBR 600. So many of these were sold and very few were looked after, that it was nice to see, what was in effect a cheap bike when it came out, being really looked after.
As Im sure you've worked out, I'm drawn to the weird, wonderful or unusual. The latter often takes the form, like the above, or an older mass produced bike that is is just fantastic condition. I see lots of modern cutting edge sportsbike and yes these are really nice, I mean, just look at the yellow R1 below, its just an epic machine, but its the Foxeye FireBlade, the Moto Guzzi, the RD350 and the RG250 that make the Quay worth a weekly visit.
