Holiday In Holland 2004
The pieman cometh (onto the ferry)
HiH is automatic-friendly. As long as you come by
scooter you are welcome. Car drivers can fuck off.
Ever wondered what to do with all that plastic scooter
shite from your local dealer? The Munich Blues lead a revival of 1980s
scooter accessories. How sad . . .
TAFSC members acting as 'scarecrows' on the gate. They
gallantly volunteered to wear yellow shirts to keep wasps and insects away
from the paying punters
Oi Bill, where's Ben? "Flob-a-lob", said Bill after
seeing the candyman.
Full-face lids and flip-flops. Proper HiH style.
I like to move it!
DJ Bio spinning Demis Rousos classics in the main room.
"one day someone will re-mix this and they'll ruin it"
Note to self: next time I fall over when off my head in
Amsterdam, remember to put my hands out first.
The eyes have it!
Ready for the rideout
Mystery woman - nice scoot, nice legs but what about the
boat? We never found out.
Scooters and riders from as far apart as Greece, Norway
and Salford (wherever that is!).
Riders block the traffic to keep the group together.
Nearing Het Rutbeek swimming lake. The helmet of the guy
riding pillion on the Runner was last used on the set of Battlestar
Waterski riding is free for rally-goers. So is drowning.
Spooner vs Simon 'beetroot-head' Cuerden at the
Nice fast smallframe which wins the up to 175cc class,
but sadly bought by van. Next time the sprint will be ridden scooters
The TAFSC boys ensure the sprint runs smoothly.
German racers in the over 175cc class.
Sprinting gives Dave the horn.
The sprinting is delayed several times while 'crazy
Dutch bastards' keep trying to use 'their' road. The army guys show of
their highly prized ex-Iraqi tank.
"When I'm not taking sprint scooters to rallies by van,
I like to visit The Cock Ring in Amsterdam on leather joy boy night, how
The Vodka Slush-puppy stand caused a few casualties.
None worse than this freak though . . .
The whizz isn't working lads.
The condemned man awaits the hangman
Perhaps its not so bad afterall.
The blonde tries to tune in to Swinging Radio Enschede's
tractor-pulling results show.
My dad said the strippers would put hair on my chest.
What went wrong?
The giant spheres from The Prisoner were sent to chase
people out of the do at the end.
CLUB CASUALTY NO1: Pat ('gripping hands Action Man')
Speed Demon, prior to the terminal Sunday session. Later retrieved fully dressed from the shower at 3am on
Monday. Oh dear.
CLUB CASUALTY No2. Markus ('it's ok I'm a regular on the
floor') Speed Demon who managed to not only stand up on Sunday but ride
home too. When HiH finishes Betty Ford's work begins.
CASUALTY No3: Twice we bought this fucked-up spaz to
Holland to entertain the crowds with his singing and dancing. Last year he
broke a guitar string, this time he snapped his brain and his larynx.
Like many clubs, Burton Brewers printed their own shirts
especially for the rally
(and spent a lot of money at Biffo the Clown's Comedy
Hat and Trouser Emporium)
The Thursday session gets messy
No Fletch, no!
follow the crocodile, or else!
sweating, gurning - that'll be Tesco on the wheels of
the tree-lined avenues of the rideout
usual suspects in the town
No, but that 'tache is

Yes Miles, we would too - even with the facial hair
nobody parties harder (a few Demons excepted)
She's got the moves (from Hollywoods in Romford)
Super Cooper from Hamburg
Vinyl Lionels only in the soul room
time tunnel vision
the legend that is Chuckles
Chuck invited some friends along.
No not that sort of scooter you daft old twat.
The Burton boys extend the party at 6am
Invisible basketball spinning was a big hit this year.
Blue-haired Max helps him get started.
. . . as was invisible cricket.
. . . invisible ladder climbing.
. . . ready to roll at invisible roulette
. . .invisible Morris Dancing with Mick Gauntlet in the
rave room. Dave decided to sit this one out - and the next 20 too . . .
Oh Grolsch, what did you make me do last night?
Even beer can't explain this.
. . . or this - and he's stuck with that face.
. . . or this. Being fisted by a midget?
While I was whizzing I thought it would be a good idea
to try and find that rattle. Now I'm not so sure.
Look for the last fucking time, I'm Spartacus ok!
You crazy Dutch bastard
What has this got in common with Steve's leg?
Lots of unnecessary metal additions . . .
2004 - year of the smallframe Vespa
(idle) Eric and friends
You only get this quality sound and lighting rig at HiH

How to get a head in scootering
There's a little guy from Hamburg looking for you lads
