AFTER a day that couldn’t make up its mind weather-wise, the sun finally appeared and more than 450 motorbikes rode down to Poole Quay last Tuesday evening.

Phil Packham won Bike of the Night with his black Suzuki M1800 Intruder.

The judges thought that it was a “unique bike with distinctive features, attracting lots of attention on the night”. Phil rode home with a race kit courtesy of Muc-Off, plus a Bike of the Night mug.

He will also be invited to take part in the Bike of the Year finale at the end of the season, with cash prizes on offer for the top three places.

Bikers can still buy season armbands from the Welcome Centre for £7.50, or you can pay £1 entry on the night for each individual event.
