Chiltern TRs


"Drive it Day" run to the National Motorcycle Museum, 25th April 2010 

The agreed meeting point was the Bucks Railway Centre, Quainton Time to brief the crews. Ron's road book used tulip diagrams to describe the route in great detail and proved easy to follow

Roger, Julia and Hissing Sid at the meeting point Almost ready for the off. Ingram looks dressed for anything !
Woolly hats were a good idea. Then the rains came ......
Fortunately, the sun came out again along the way and by the time we arrived at the NMCM it was actually quite warm. Dave T's white TR6 with Dave B's blue one
All nine cars present and correct  Everybody made it. No serious breakdowns and no one got lost
A nice pair of TR2s Sensible Jacqueline brought sandwiches !
A huge number of exhibits and all British bikes ..... many (all) of the names long since gone. The museum is on the site of the old Triumph factory
The AA were on hand but fortunately we didn't need them This Manx Norton, prepared by Fred Walmsley, was ridden by the late Barry Sheene to win his last ever race, at The Revival Meeting at Goodwood. Sadly Barry died in 2003 after a brave battle against cancer

Thanks to Heather, Roger and Geoff for the pictures
