Photos from the Wessex V&V On The Beaded Edge Run 2019

The Dorset Section was well represented at the  Wessex V&V Section’s On The Beaded Edge Run which was held yesterday, plus we had some welcome visitors from the Somerset and West Wiltshire Sections.

It started and ended at its usual venue, the Old Ox Inn in Shillingstone and took in 37 miles of Dorset countryside via Bryanston, Winterborne Stickland, Milton Abbas, Hilton, Mappowder, Plush, Piddletrentide, Duntish, Kings Stag, Hazelbury Bryan and Sturminster Newton. Thank you Wessex V&V for a great day.

The three 1930 oily rag Douglas motorcycles that Paul Miles and I bought back in March made their first, and probably their last appearance together on this run.  Ken Druce kindly rode the T6 (the one with footboards) while Paul and I were on our S6s.  Apart from my S6 shearing a crankcase bolt just before the start, all three went very well, but it is now time to say goodbye to the T6.

Don’t forget our own Two In One Run next Sunday 7th July….full details here.
