Bikes In The Park

I was back in my home town of Kirkcaldy in Scotland this year in time to catch the Bikes In The Park event at the Beveridge Park. This is the fourth time this event has been held with a large range of motorbikes on show from vintage, veteran, classic, race bikes and modern.

An old friend of mine, Jim Ross, was exhibiting at the show so it was great to catch up with him after many years and to see his magnificent Aermacchi Ala d’Oro race bike which he has restored to first class condition.

The Beveridge Park in Kirkcaldy had a 40 year history of holding road races round the park until 1988 when they ceased. It was one of the premier road racing venues in Scotland at the time …… hard to imagine that when you see the small track that they raced round with only a few bales of hay as safety measures.

I was very pleased to see my friend Jim Ross won the Jim Rodger Trophy for Best Italian bike for his beautiful Aeromacchi …. well done Jim!

Jim also won an additional prize for Best Classic Race Bike which I heard about later that day after I left.
