Big Knock 2020

So, because of the Covid 19 outbreak, we’ve put things on hold for the moment. The camping site at the pub is shut. I’ve added a link to it on the rally page link here: http://www.dieselbike.net/Rally-Info/rally.htm We are not sure how this will play out regarding T shirts either so it’s just possib...

That Scottish bloke could well have been the guy who looked after our camping fields? He first came across the pub when we had our first rally there.

KLR Diesel

Finally got myself a KLR. It’s the slightly older bike that many rode at the Big Knock. Need to gear it for the road more but nice to ride round the back lanes on it :D

Erik has asked me to post the last one up but he wants serious money for it.

Jeff may sell his for the right price. Fully registered in UK with standard plate, not a Q jobby.

Everything is on track for the Big Knock 2019 gathering at the Bat & Ball. Camping has gone up to £11 a night from £10 but that’s still pretty good value.
