“A few of us motorcyclists get together on Wednesday evenings at Arreton Barns and last year one of us had the idea of putting on a show. The first one was a success so we decided to have another go this year and we did even better.

“Wightlink helped us out with transport and we think it was the biggest motorcycle show ever held on the Island – unless anyone else knows different.

“Sadly I was so busy parking up the cars and bikes on the day, I didn’t get to see everything”.
