In a celebration of their 60th year of existence, the Brough Superior Club organised an across-Britain ride, with the destination being Sammy Miller’s museum in Hampshire.
But rather than it being a simple point-to-point ride out, the club spent a full week traversing the country, visiting important places in Brough’s history. The route started at Brooklands, travelling through Dorset to Clouds Hill (the National Trust property that was home to T E Lawrence at the time of his death), onwards to visit a number of Brough-related venues in Nottingham, then to RAF Cranwell (where Lawrence served as an airman in 1926 and ’27), and to the National Motorcycle Museum to gaze upon its collection of Broughs, before heading to Middle Aston House, between Oxford and Banbury, where the main part of the rally took place.
The club then rode to the Miller Museum, at which the accompanying photograph was taken with Sammy himself.
