The fourth annual Bob MacGregor Memorial motorcycle run took place on Tuesday 28th April at the Perthshire village of Killin.
Trials Guru, John Moffat was the guest of honour and rode his late father’s 1951 AJS 16MC trials machine on a route that covered approximately 130 miles of Perthshire’s A and B class roads.
The route took in Glen Lyon, Loch Rannoch, Bridge of Balgie, Bridge of Gaur and out to Rannoch Station with a stop for fuel in Aberfeldy.
The organiser in chief was Kendal enthusiast Peter Remington who is a well known trials and scrambles rider from the North West Centre.
Former Scottish Six Days Trial Clerk of Course Mark Whitham entered on a 1935 499 Rudge, a similar machine to the type Bob MacGregor won the SSDT with in 1935, the last win by a Scottish rider.
Local painter/decorator Bobby Lafferty plotted and marked the route and obtained various landowner permissions. Catering was supplied by specialists Gourlay Catering from Crieff.
A variety of machinery was used ranging from early trials machines to more modern trail and road machines with a few Cheney Triumphs, one used by ex-ISDT rider George Webb.
The weather up to the event was not good with snow down to sea level the day before, but all the roads were snow and ice free even high up and everyone vowed to return next year. Roll on 2016!
