More Things To Do

Brit Jam is always a great meet put on by the British Iron Association of Connecticut. Although British bikes are featured, bikes of all nations and types are on display and compete for trophies. There are several Asian and Euro classes as well as a myriad of British classes. The People's Choice Award is always a cliff hanger and has not always been to a Brit bike. This year it is on Sunday, 15 August in Haddam, CT. There are usually a couple of hundred bikes on display and several hundred people in attendance. The parking area is almost as interesting as the show!

You don't need a museum queen to show your bike, most are ridden to the meet. No extra charge to display. There is a vendor area with lot's of odd bits if you're looking for something British. Food and refreshments are available.

The finale of the show is the door prize. A free 1978 Bonneville like the one pictured above. Every year the club restores a bike to give away at the show. Your admission is your drawing ticket and I think you can buy extra tickets at the club booth if this model floats your boat. I was very disappointed that I didn't win the 441 Victor last year! Special thanks goes to Dave Quinn for supplying a new set of Hagon Shocks for the restoration every year.

See you there. I'll be showing my Dream 50 and maybe the Yetman cafe bike. Vote for me! The flyer is here.
