Pitstop Motorcycles open day
Spent most of Saturday down at the PITSTOP MOTORCYCLES open day. The sun was out and a steady flow of biker folks came along throughout the day to check out the bikes, eat hot-dogs and have a cuppa.
The idea is to get new and old folks into the shop, get them interested in bikes or just get people to go out and buy stuff locally, not just off the internet....SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL MOTORCYCLE SHOP!!
Tony the owner (that's him sat on the Triumph) also had some of his collection of vintage toys on display including a JOHNNY SEVEN rifle, ACTION MAN items and a MAN FROM UNCLE handgun.
I was there with some of the Skooter Farm bikes just raising awareness of the UK Dirt Track racing scene.
Had a tv hooked up playing vintage movies that had people transfixed. Just generally trying to spread the word about the fairly local upcoming Stoke race (under floodlights) on Saturday 10th July. Its round 4 of the National championship and its free entry for spectators.
