It's one of the biggest event of its kind in the world and the 2004 event was one of the best ever despite the rain - at least that's according to the 25,000 that headed to the Bulldog Bash.

Roads in sleepy South Warwickshire become cruising strips for some four days every year as Hell's Angels, weekend bikers and enthusiasts come together for a weekend of racing, cruising, admiring and, of course, drinking and dancing!

The event, which celebrated its 18th birthday in 2004, came just a week after the Global Gathering but ut still managed the rare feat of being popular with locals.

The main reason is organisation. The Hells Angels MC run a very tight ship and noise and disruption were, as usual, kept to a minimum.

A substantial amount of money was raised for local charities too, not least thanks to the Stratford Rotary Club's grocery stall!

Focus on fun
The focus of the event was fun, fun, fun and what more fun could you have than when you're pushing your bike to its limits?

Run What You Brung is one of the most popular and most exciting events to watch at the Bulldog. Everyone is given a chance to tank their machine as fast as they like down the drag strip.

If you're happier leaving speed to the experts, then there were still plenty of chances to get the adreneline running - albeit by proxy!

Top fuel cars and bikes, jet cars, karts and lorries and stunt riders tore down the strip at various points during the weekend, thrilling absolutely everyone and making sure no one forgot the importance of the machines.

And as night fell over the rolling fields of South Warwickshire, everyone headed into the beer tents for some serious drinking, some excellent live music and heavy, heavy dancing.
