Café Racer Meeting

Advertised on Facebook this event was put together mostly by word of mouth. As the day promised to be fair I popped over after work, having arranged to meet a couple of friends at the car park opposite.

It's quite a dramatic backdrop, practically underneath the Forth Bridge and within sight of the two newer road bridges.

As befitted such a low key event people simply turned up and parked their bikes along the pavement, careful not to impede pedestrian access. 

There were a number of very trick looking home-built café racers, a good few older vintage machines, and the usual gathering of more modern sports bikes, some of which might charitably be considered the distant progeny of the original café racers. The most obvious example being the new Norton Dominator to be seen below.

A wander around looking at the bikes, talking to a few of the owners, a cup of tea and then home. Not a bad way to spend an evening.
