I have been working hard on my lovely little CRF. This weekend I fitted a rear carrier which is super handy as I had nowhere to keep anything on my daily travels between Amalfi and my garage in Tramonti so a rucksack was essential. I bought this rear rack in the UK recently and theContinue reading “My Honda CRF250 comes alive!!”

More pictures from Le Mans….
Le Mans 24 hours – WHAT an amazing experience
The City of Le Mans is stunning with a beautifully preserved old town full of bars and eating houses. Our Hotel LePrince was also a great discovery inside a renovated area of the town with several bars and attractions as well as an art exhibition and a wellness spa attached to the hotel. And theContinue reading “Le Mans 24 hours – WHAT an amazing experience”
Le Mans 24 hours here we come (but the weather is not looking good)
Well it is almost time to head north for the wonderful Le Mans 24 hour motorcycle race. Of course the car race is more famous but I much prefer 2 wheeled racing so bikes for me! The car race uses the full circuit so some national roads must be closed, whereas the bike race usesContinue reading “Le Mans 24 hours here we come (but the weather is not looking good)”
Nick Sanders, the man his travels and the new film
Oh my goodness, last weekend thanks to Martin and the gang at the best motorcycle shop in the whole world as far as I know Alf England I met and chatted with THE MAN super modest Nick Sanders. World traveller and multiple record holder Nick is currently touring a bunch of UK Yamaha dealers andContinue reading “Nick Sanders, the man his travels and the new film”
Motorcycle downsizing. It comes with advancing “maturity”….ok age
As I become more mature, today’s big bikes are just too powerful for my reactions and my ability, especially the sports bikes which are now making over 200 bhp. I purchased a beautiful 2015 60th Anniversary Yamaha R1 last year as a “last” big bike but she proved far too much for me so IContinue reading “Motorcycle downsizing.

My Vito and I prepare for our next UK trip…
My new-to-me 2017 Mercedes Vito 116 gets better as I get to know her more and I start to work out all of the clever tech that she has onboard. For instance I now know almost all of the functions on the dashboard (and there are loads) and I am really enjoying the excellent combinationContinue reading “My Vito and I prepare for our next UK trip…”
New Waxoyl spray, what a fantastic product..
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..”
Has mighty Honda lost the plot (a bit)??
I have always loved and admired Honda motorcycles ever since I was a kid, at 14 I bought a rather tired 50cc C100 Cub for riding in the fields (it snapped in half and I had to get the frame welded back togather by our local blacksmith). I had a 1978 Honda 750 Four K6Continue reading “Has mighty Honda lost the plot (a bit)??”
