Many years ago my Dad and I used to apply Waxoyl to his car once or twice a year. He always used to run British cars and I remember several Morris and Austins culminating in his Austin 3 Litre and then a lovely Rover SD1 V8S and so on, Dad was very faithful to UK-builtContinue reading “New Waxoyl spray, what a fantastic product..”

My many years of experience with the amazing Yamaha TMaxs
I have come to know and to love my days and kilometers riding the Yamaha TMax. As a motorcyclist for many years I always thought that the TMax was a bit strange: generally a scooter is purchased for cheap commuting and motorbikes are generally for pleasure riding so where does a fast 500cc twin cylinderContinue reading “My many years of experience with the amazing Yamaha TMaxs”
Would you purchase a motorbike from this large fellow??
Back in the (very) old days when I was a student I was already a keen motorcyclist and the proud owner of a stunning red Honda CB750K6 which I had purchased semi new from a mate, trading in my lovely yellow and black (speedblock) Yamaha RD400.

Why do UK motor cyclists never RIDE anywhere??
When I was met up with my good mate Barnes recently we were discussing motorbikes over a cold beer or three as usual.

We did it, France again and WHAT a fast, fun trip..

We would drive down in our trusty old Land Rover 109 (with tent on board andContinue reading “We did it, France again and WHAT a fast, fun trip..”
Barnes does Europe….very fast!!!
I first met Brian the Barnes perhaps 20 years ago when he came on board the Alf England ship in Bedworth (north Coventry). He came from a car dealer to work as Service Manager for Martin the Cole, Martin and I have been mates since I studied in Coventry many moons ago. Brian had loadsContinue reading “Barnes does Europe….very fast!!!”

It must be said that I spend alot of my waking hours thinking about bikes, cos I really love them!!! Recently my fave motorbike shop in the world contacted me to tell me that they have a bike “with my name on it”, a Honda Goldwing which had just come in from a mutual friendContinue reading “Another French trip….really????”
