In accepting the cheque Rick said that "When people start up in business they have a lot of things on their minds and goals they have in place. In the first year of business for THE BIKER GUIDE, they have donated this cheque, as NABD is important to them".

Sharon Rollisson-Slaughter, from THE BIKER GUIDE, talked about how she had a crazy idea a long time ago to produce a Calendar in the style of the Calendar Girls, with Bikers included and how she was glad the calendar was not 'Scratch and Sniff'!

The main ethos whilst producing the Calendar was "Its all about the comedy value" and one particular comedy moment was when briefing the Royal British Legion Riders Branch group to how we would take the photograph, she said "We will position the Bikes and then you can strip down to your underwear", where she was greeted with blank stares and mumblings of "I thought it was naked and I have nothing on underneath". As Sharon composed herself and to avoid 'eye contact' with the baby Bikers (!) she tried to change the subject and mentioned that "Is it true that the RBLRB were larger down South than up North".

The calendar featured Motorcycle Clubs from around the UK, with volunteers virtually naked and carefully posed with their bikes, to avoid any embarrassment or envy and artfully taken in black and white.

During the summer months of 2009, the photographs were taken of various Motorcycle Clubs across the UK, including members of NABD, The Royal British Legion Riders Branch, Northern Harley Club, Jesters MCC, FELP, The Wrecking Crew, Unwanted MCC, Royal Oak Rejects, Salutation MCC and Bristol & Avon Roadrunners MCC. All in all, 121 Bikers in various forms of undress took part.

A big thank you goes to all those who took part and dared to bare, everyone who bought the calendar, all those who helped with the promoting and NABD for supporting this idea.

In association with THE BIKER GUIDE website (www.thebikerguide.co.uk ) they are now looking for Motorcycle Clubs who wish to take part in the 2011 Calendar.
