How about this basket....

...stood in your front garden filled with flowers? My daughter and son-in-law said 'No way'! They hope to travel between Epson and Brighton on it tomorrow for the annual vintage motorcycle run so if you live along the route, give them a wave! They have hit a few problems today but hopefully they will make it. As its over 90 years old, obtaining replacement parts is a problem.

Thank you for all your good wishes. The old bike made the journey in about 3 hours although my daughter apparently had to get out and walk up the hills and then jump back in! It is the first time they have done this run, usually they accompanied my late ex-husband. It was a journey of memories for them all. My twin daughters acted as backup, following behind with the bike trailer. The bike has been in our family for just over 40 years, having been rebuilt by my father in law. It's good that it is being kept in the family and is being used for runs and rallies.

I'm glad to know that the old bike performed so well, and didn't let everyone down. :o)
Obviously brought back lots of memories. Nice that it is a family event.

Oh dear, I can remember riding side-saddle on the back of a BSA many years ago because my skirt was too tight to sit astride!! Good job I'm more sensible now :)
