|My daddy on his 20s combo Brough Superior which he managed to roll with my mother and oldest brother on board..|
However they all survived and my parents went on to produce six more children me being one of them,
so I naturally inherited a love of motorbikes and also rolling them.
|Due to advancing age,brittle bones and fear of dropping off the thing which can hurt a bit I have given up bikes after 57 years of bashing the roads.and am now on boring four wheels and sit in traffic jams watching with envy bikers creaming by and disappearing rapidly round the corner ahead that I know is going to take me ten minutes to even reach in my tin box... The only time a car makes for better travelling is when it's raining or on a motorway.|
From a Vespa to a Zephyr,and a lot of bikes in between,,thanks for the memory.
