It was decided to organise a motorcycle ride to a pub for lunch. Here we are at the rendezvous before setting off.
As you can see, the group consisted mainly of pensioners - but the three near the left are honorary 'oldies'. They help to bring the average age down to about 22. John 'Moon Eyes' Cooper is in this picture. During the 1971 Race of the Year at Mallory Park, fifty thousand motorcycle racing fans crowded into the Leicestershire circuit for what turned out to be greatest race ever run on the UK mainland - John 'Moon Eyes' Cooper on the BSA Rocket 3 running against multi-world champion Giacomo Agostini and the all-conquering 500 MV Agusta. Spectators shouted themselves hoarse through 30 laps of intense action which ended in a fairy-tale win for the British rider on the British bike. Click HERE for a link.
There were two Honda VFRs on this ride. John 'Moon Eyes' Cooper rode one of them.
