Time to get back into the e-mails with this nice collection!
With special Thanks to Kenneth Pantling for all the hard work. Some very nice rides here!
These pictures were taken at The Goat Public House in Skeyton, North Norfolk, UK. The annual gathering there is in aid of cancer charities and draws in an astonishing variety of vintage bikes and cars for such a small rural gathering. Skeyton is right next door to Coltishall which was the site of one of the famous WWII Battle of Britain Spitfire bases. Douglas Bader, the pilot with tin legs, was based at Coltishall and allegedly downed a significant part of his beer consumption in The Goat.
Some of the pictures are of the same bike from a couple of different angles so you may well want to dump some of them. Also the bikes varied from pristine to distinctly agricultural so if any of these pictures are of interest, take your pick.
And here some more from a few years back. Nice Square Four and that Scott is sweet!
I’ve been a big fan of “WhereTheHellIsMurph” for years now. He’s just checked in as he’s about to head out on another of his grand adventures! He does live an enviable life! Do yourselves a favor and check out all his links and bookmark his blog so you can follow along. You won’t be sorry.

Hiya Steve,long time buddy.
So listen,I’m about to leave the US and have already shipped my motorcycle to Holland where I pick it up May 1st and then do a 2 Wheel Drive Sidecar conversion on it before
I spend the next 3 to 4 years doing a Round the World ride on it,so I wanted to drop you a line to say Hi and bye at the same time.
I was also up in my buddy Peg Leg Craig Anderson’s place in Big Bear CA and what a great collection of old racing bikes he has.
I’ve included a few shots of his 1966 500cc Matchless G85 CS Scrambler.
Hope all is well Steve,and next time I send you something,it will be from somewhere far away from here……
