Beaulieu Biker Friendly Day & Graham Walker Memorial Run - August 9th 2009

The Beaulieu motor museum in Hampshire opened its doors to bikers for the day and gave those who had pre-registered, free entry to the museum & grounds. The day coincided with the Graham Walker Memorial Run which involved veteran and vintage bikes built before 31st December 1930. Graham Walker was one of the founders of the Sunbeam MCC in 1924 and was also President of the Club for many years. After he finished racing motorcycles he became editor of ‘Motorcycling’ magazine and on his retirement from journalism he became the first curator of what was then the Montague Motor Museum. A year after his death this event was started in his honour.
Me, on my Harley Road King and JayJay, on her Reliant trike, had a nice day out. The weather was gorgeous and we made the most of what Beaulieu had to offer, including the fun and informative Wheels exhibition, the Top Gear TV show exhibition, the tour of the grounds by monorail and a look at the bikes visiting both events. 
Another fine day out.
