I went on the annual Sussex engineerium run today Hove England , fantastic weather over 300 bikes from 1908 Indians to modern superbikes i had a great thrash through the back lanes of sussex for 100km behind a 1927 Brough Superior SS80 ridden by an 82 yearold and a 1931 Norton 350 Manx racer , these old bikes were no slouches they could get up to 75 mph easy so i did not have to restrain the Monster 750 too much,

great fun 70% of the bikes were 50s 60s Triumphs,BSA,Arials ,matchlesses and Nortons,

Sounds like a good time Jerry. The old Brough Superiors certainly had a bit of go in them as Lawrence of Arabia found out to his demise.

My uncle who I never met was killed riding his Brough Superior. Which is why as a kid I was not allow to have a bike.
