Motor Bikes lined up on Poole Quay

Bike Night Bonanza

Bikers on the South Coast descend on Poole Quay every Tuesday evening to meet up for the famous Poole Dream Machines weekly bike meetup to show off and check out each other’s bikes as well as enjoying good old fish and chips on the Quay. The event runs from April 5 to September 27, and I recently had the opportunity to go down and check it out for myself.
