A Photopshop Con Job. I arrived late. Farmer had cleared the field, and I had to resort to Google Image Library. I then shifted the focus of the 1950s combine to give the photo the feel of depth.

I currently own nine running motorcycles, and many more still to be recommisioned. Only a few are shown on this page. I started riding at 15. And showed an interest from around the age of 10.

My Brother and I used to push an engineless Honda step through round the woods opposite my parents house. I realise how lucky I am these days to own several classics, and to have made hundreds of friends locally and internationally through motorcycling.

Oddly I own more engines than motorcycles. If I am not riding I spend my free time maintaining my motorcycles, reading and drinking coffee. Over the years I have ridden in most of the European Countries.

I wasn't a natural to motorcycling as Dad had a scooter.  I started riding because I could not afford a car. I needed to get to college on a route that was not easily done on public transport. The rest as they say is history.

I do not claim to be an expert, or particularly knowledgeable on any of the bikes I own. As such my ramblings in this blog are not to be trusted. I have over the years learnt the hard way. I have come to recognise that many of the posts on the internet from those that proport to be experts are nothing more than people that only a few years ago would have been locked away, unable to damage motorcycles or people.

I think it's probably to do with the fact I'm self taught and want to know the things going to work reliably and correctly before I make the bike look pretty.

If the weathers nice, and by that I mean dry and the roads are not salt laden or wet then I'll be bimbling between pubs and coffee shops on one of my bikes. Often with friends, Often alone, as Motorcycling can only ever be a solitary experience.

My favourite bike, is probably the cheapest bike I have ever bought, see below. It is a 1958 BSA C15 250cc. Ideal for bimbling along the B roads of East Anglia. Seen here parked outside my local Post Office.
