I got both.

What i use to go to rallies depends on:

a) what's running/legal

b) how much junk and beer I need to take.

And I don't give a fuck what keyboard bikers think....

If you want to put on a rally you can make your own rules as regards bikes trikes pedestrians and cars.

Just make sure it's advertised as such.

That way if you want to go to bike only events it's easy.

But I'm glad the rave tent has gone from the Bully.

I've never needed to put on my own rally to be accepted on my trike - or even in my car with a blue badge.

I don't want to rally with people narrow-minded enough to exclude me because of the number of wheels - but to each his own.

I have ridden bikes since 1981, but a couple of years back I had a damned near fatal off, leaving me partially disabled, so now I ride a Spyder.

Given a choice I would have two wheels any day. But bollocks to a car.. I don't even have one.

I think you missunderstood.

My comment was aimed at those who would exclude people.

I've organised rallies and shows, and never excluded anyone. Apart from bikes in a show must run and be rideable, cos otherwise it's an ornament too big to fit on a shelf.

Yes I did misunderstand - sorry! But having re-read your comment, it reads either way!

No problem. I wouldn't exclude people but I accept the right of organisers to do so.

But I have turned up to a rally on a trike and was refused entry. But as they had not advertised it as bikes only I was well pissed off.

Some twatt had a go at me for being at a bike rally in a car, when the marque arrived on the roof of me car and the beer in the boot also it towed the water bowser onto the site.

He said there were "No excuses"

I'd have turned round and taken the marquee, beer and bowser with me! Soon have changed his mind!

I went to a couple of rallies last year in the car, one because I was taking a biker who's lost his sight, and another because it was too far for me to ride. People who know me, know that I've done the riding bit, on my bike and after I had a bad break to my leg, on the same bike with an extra wheel.

I always swore I'd stop rallying if I had to go in the car but now I'm 66 and full of arthritis and it's just not that simple! I can just about cope with camping but sometime if I ride to a rally I'm too tired to put my tent up so if I'm not feeling too good I go in the car. I hate not having my trike outside the tent, and even more I hate the knowledge that this year it'll be there with a 'For sale' notice on it, but I can't justify the expense of keeping it on the road for the few times I rode it even in a good summer.

There, I've said publicly - I'll have to stick to it now.....

BG, I really can't justify keeping my bike, but I bought it back last xmas, and buggered if I will sell it again. I bite the missus's head off if she merely suggests the idea!

Keep the Trike it's one of the few pleasures left!

If you get one day just one day with a smile on your face the cost is justified. It will hurt more not having the bike on those days when you look out the window and think am off...and ye canny.

Damm and here's me looking for a fishing smiley (couldn't find it), a lot of very touchy people on here, well two especially.

BTW what's a keyboard biker? Is that the same as a "biker" in a car??? (ooooh so tempted to come out with you know what )

Still cant find that fishing smiley .........

Still don't see the point in going to a BIKE rally in a car though, isn't that part of the whole fun, the ride there and back? I can go camping in the car with the big tent, airbeds stoves, table, chairs etc etc to any camp site, but I have to face screaming kids and fuckwit parents, not so much fun at all.

And lets face it there's an increasing amount of folks at bike rallies who don't ride trikes or bikes, have never even passed a test or even considered it, but they like the "life style", they wear bike jackets and leathers but again have no intention of owning a bike or trike.

If you are running the rally, fine, there loads of shit you often have to take and its just impossible to get it on a bike, but the two clubs I have been in have taken stuff to the rally site and then gone back and got their bikes, mostly.
