And clubs favourite Herbie will be the DJ, Brian Capper will do stunts Saturday afternoon, the usual dyno will be there and, scoop scoop, the Drag Race Machine, as seen on TV, will be there with two bikes at a time on the machine racing each other with count down lights and all. Mass ride Saturday 11am through town and environs,  and happiness in one of the nicest tourist towns in the country.
