1960s’ trials ace Mick Dismore will be guest of honour at 2018 Moidart Run

Open to motorcycles manufactured until 1979, the ninth Moidart Peninsula Classic Motorcycle Road Run will take place on Thursday, May 3, 2018.

Organisers Andrew Johnstone and John McCrink have also announced that the guest of honour will be 1960s’ trials ace Mick Dismore, a Scottish Six Days’ Trial veteran who was a fully supported works rider for James from 1959 until 1964.

High in the hills, the perfectly poised Mick Dismore is seen in action.

Now 85, he’s still a regular visitor to the ‘Scottish’ and is looking forward to a run around the peninsula on his old Honda as he retraces his steps from several decades ago.

Each year enthusiasts on an amazing variety of classic and vintage machinery make the spring pilgrimage to the Scottish Highlands, and last year’s event attracted entrants from all over
the UK as well as Europe and even the USA.

The Moidart Run has now established itself as the opener to a brilliant few days of classic motorcycling in and around Kinlochleven, the main event being the Pre-65 Scottish Two-Day Trial on the Friday and Saturday.
