Motorcycles in Ramsgate, watercolour painting in Ramsgate and Canterbury, photos and wosisnames

I started the day painting the Royal Temple Yacht club from The Oak Hotel in Ramsgate

  Like other things this was disappointingly small, if you click on it it will enlarge and you get a sort of Only Cow Girls thumb and a picture that may look worse as it will bigger than it is.
 On to Ramsgate Rev-up, I guess like me you notice lots of signs on roundabouts advertising classic vehicle events, but not for this one – frankly it doesn’t need them.

 The Indian Model H racing motorcycle would I guess date from date from around 1915 and would be capable speeds in excess of 100 mph, as it is a racing model it obviously has no brakes.

I took quite a few pictures at this event, they are a bit obsessive, I have owned and ridden quite a few motorcycles over the years and lusted after quite a few more.

Anyway here is the link to the photos, you can download the full definition versions and as far as I’m concerned do what you want with them

On to Canterbury this afternoon 
 I did a bit more to my watercolour from Chocolate Cafe 

bought some books for my bookshop and wound up having tea at Tea Curzon

If you can't get enough of this sort of bike click on the link at the bottom of the post that says Ramsgate Motorcycle Sprint

Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.
