Motorbikes parked on Eastbourne seafront on May bank holiday Monday, 2015

Eastbourne delighted us yesterday morning as much as ever. The municipal gardens were putting on a good display of colour whilst the work to restore the pier is nearing completion and there’s a set of market stalls along the sea front. Frustrating to see some tasty motorbikes there - especially having enjoyed the MotoGP from Jerez (Spain) on the television the previous day - but driving back to Brighton in Terry’s car it was obvious how frustrating it has become to ride a sports motorbike in the south-east of England.
