New bike show in Scotland

It isn't often that Scotland gets a huge new bike show starting up. In fact, there aren't a lot of new shows happening anywhere really. So we're a bit lucky on that score. Have you heard about the new one at Lanark? Scheduled for the 12th/13th May 2012 at the Lanark agricultural mart, it's gonna be a showcase for all kinds of bikes and biking. Open to everything from veteran, vintage and classic through to sports bikes, tourers and customs. Competition machines are welcome too, both from road and off road disciplines; it is going to be HUGE. GBC will be there with a couple of Tiger Cubs, and hopefully the Grampian Classic MCC will be taking a stand, but I'm led to believe that there is still a bit more space for both private entries and club stands. Oh, and there's a big pot of cash to be won too - £100 for the best bike and up to £750 for the best club stand. What's all that about???? So if the cash isn't enough to tempt you, here's a sample of the attractions over the weekend.... SCOTLAND'S 300MPH SPEED MACHINE JOINS SHOW LINE-UP Among the attractions already lined up is the Flower of Scotland streamliner, which has been built to achieve more than 300mph on a one litre Kawasaki ZX-11 motorcycle engine, and a rally car once driven in competition by Colin McRae. Also confirmed as appearing are Scots road racing greats Donnie McLeod and Jim Moodie. McLeod was a star performer on the Tarmac during the 1980s while multiple TT winner Moodie enjoyed massive success during the 1990s, including becoming the first rider to lap the Island course at over 120mph on a production bike. Dozens of clubs and trade exhibitors are already booked and visitors can experience the sights, sounds and smells of classic racing bikes in the event’s GP paddock. There will also be a scrambles track with demonstrations by the riders of the Scottish Classic Racing Motorcycle Club. Anyone who’s wondered whether they’ve got what it takes to be a trials rider can find out at the show’s trials area and firefighters from Strathclyde Fire & Rescue will be demonstrating their ‘jaws of life’ equipment on a couple of unsuspecting car roofs. You can get more info on taking a stand or showing your bike off at www.classicbikeshows.com or on the good old fashioned telling phone - 01507 529430

Well GBC, This weekend at the show in Santa Clara, got two more pieces to my Cub puzzle. You can see them at my blog. I missed a guy who left early and had three Cubs and parts. Might have had to spend more if he had hung around...
