Peterborough or bust
|This was when we still had balloons|
Everything was up and ready by the time the first happy motorcyclists began coming in at about 3pm and after a slowish start on Friday, things picked up for a busy weekend on Saturday and Sunday. People were genuinely mainly very friendly and loyal BMF visitors welcomed Wemoto's first appearance at the BMF.
|Those nice friendly yellow people from Wemoto|
At least two different people challenged the Wemoto team along the lines of:
"You don't do parts for my Triumph Rocket 111 though do you?"
...and were pleasantly surprised when the answer was...
"yes we do, we don't just do Japanese bikes but British, European, American and Chinese as well!"
...And Wemoto's new and very successful BC battery charger drew lots of attention from an admiring public as well....
Oh yes and everyone loved the extremely cool Wemoto balloons - especially this happy customer...
|Go dog Go!|
|Everytime a coconut!|
This is before - for after look on the grass under the bouncing dog - apparently he cried if he wasn't allowed to pop them and no one could say no...aah! We have more photos, it would make a great flick book....
The motorcycle eye candy and the pesky Lego bricks!
|Well the Lego is just coming...|
The Lego must get through...
Luckily one of the Wemoto Directors jumped in the van in Brighton on Saturday, wheeled in a very interesting rare and lovely Honda RC45 which belongs to Wemoto to bring up to the show as eye candy and the pesky forgotten Lego, and did an emergency ' Lego bricks' run up to Peterborough.
Go mopeds go!
|Football crazy, or crazy football?|
The show was fun - the main arena which was sponsored by Wemoto put on various things over the weekend including motorcycle football with a hopefully reinforced football, moped enduro complete with lovely two-stroke smell but a bit short on corners just a slalom which got a bit overcrowded and caused moped traffic jams.
|Jumping for joy|
|Jerry's brakes - could stop a juggernaut!|
Something for everyoneThere were loads of motorcycle clubs from all round the country and something of a 'meeting of the clans feel' to the event - here are just a few of the bikes which were at the Show...
Whether the weather be fine...
The weather, despite dire warnings during the week before, managed to restrain itself, only squeezing out a couple of showers on Friday and even giving out a small amount of sunshine on Monday - we actually brought it up with us from the South coast - hope the BMF appreciated it - took a while to catch us up, but it got there in the end!
The Lego build a bike competition made a lot of people smile - here are the photos of the great masterpieces which were produced - the winner will be judged at the end of the month. Prepare to be amazed the age of great engineering is not dead - Brunel is looking down from somewhere - and smiling!
And here are the 'nearly rans', the concept bikes of the future!There were a few great attempts which just didn't quite make it off the drawing board...one is apparently a hover bike...
|Some kind of very advanced trike|

All in all a good time was had by all and it was really nice to see so many motorcyclists enjoying themselves, and to meet so many of our lovely customers in person.
Good Day Sunshine
Wemoto will be at the BMF Tailend Show in September so we really hope to see you all again there - don't worry we'll bring more sunshine to that one!
