Knobbys Nuggets

Sometimes a bike just grabs you and all you have time for is a quick photo or two so that you can look back without having to rely on the ever reducing grey cells keeping it together.

Simply put, here begins a collection of snaps, taken on the fly, from various venues during our travels. No long winded explanations, just simply some pictures and some statistics if available. They may be ones that never made into a post but are too good to be left forgotten in a folder on one of our PC’s.

Where possible any resource will be referenced and permission will be asked, otherwise forgiveness will be begged.
Sometimes its just nice to enjoy a visual feast.

If you recognise one of the bikes and want to share more information with us, reach out to us through our contact page.

Ive always had a fondness for Royal Enfields, no secret there, and in particular always had a strange attraction to the tiny 2 strokes they produced. I guess its something to do with the simplicity and beauty of the design. This one is displayed in the Packard and Pioneer museum, which I visited in March 2016

1930 AJS R10

knobby : June 23, 2017 11:57 pm : Knobbys Nuggets

The mighty AJS R10 from 1930 ( or maybe 1929, i’m sure a purist will correct any glaring errors, apparently the magenta was replaced in 1930 with the now familiar Black and Gold)

Ive seen this bike at our local racetrack twice now, and as awesome as it is, whats always caught my attention is that rich magenta colour on the tank. McSnotty and I have never seen eye to eye when it comes to colour so Lord McS, when you read this, its purple , or is that dark pink??? more »
