This past weekend I had a small trip on the BMW to meet up with some friends in Norfolk, at the village of Weybourne, weather was great, roads are fantastic, and a good time was had by all.

I have been away for a weeks holiday on my BMW, loaded up for a camping trip in Wales, with a couple of friends, although the bikes used were not the normal camping tour bikes. We had a BSA A65 Thunderbolt, an Indian built Enfield 350, and the infamous Daisy, the 1948 Triumph Speedtwin….
As seen at Jack’s today..
and then from the sublime to the ….. well I will let you make up your own mind. Also at the Rabbit.

A dry day at Jack’s Cafe, and some new video in the Cutting Room.
Nice, early, but not quite what it seems…
Also there was this sweet Triumph single…

I have been sorting through some old photo’s today, looking back at some of my old bikes I used to own, so thought I would share some on here too. It’s funny looking back, at the time I thought getting rid of certain bikes was the right decision, but now there are one or two I wished I had given more time. But then I guess we all feel like this when looking back at the past?
The A10 Bobber was a cool old bike, with siamese pipes and 16″ rear wheel, it sounded sweet too, never did get to finish it though.
Now I loved this little bike, and did a fair amount of work to it, to get the look I was after,including changing the front brake to an 8″ TLS.
My Kawasaki Z650, this made it to the cover of a classic bike magazine, I sold it shortly after, a big mistake..
My old Z1000, this has been my greatest regret, I should never have sold this bike, and knew that on the day it left, oh well at least I still have the memories..

As I was in the area today, I called in at the weekly bike meet, held at Jack’s fish and chip shop in Bagshot. And while there eating my lunch, in came a Triumph fitted with a very cool “Dustbin” fairing. Now you don’t see many of these fitted these days, which is a real shame, as they are tre cool.
And here is another version I shot at the local Triumph show a couple of years back
There must be more out there somewhere?

Today was the auction at Stafford show, and it seems that for some marques the prices were down, proof that the recession is starting to bite? not sure, the results are below so why not have a look.
You can see the full list of auction results here…

This is just a blog about motorcycles, good, bad, ugly, stock, or custom. And the people who ride them. My projects, other peoples projects, places to go, what’s on, what’s been on, Just Motorcycle culture. And although I have launched this now late in 2010, It is really intended to be running from January 2011. So I shall just add a couple of pictures for good measure, just to see how it looks as it flys off into webland.
I guess I should tell you what I ride right here at the begining, so at this time I have an A65 Thunderbolt, built by BSA in 1968 for export to the East coast of the USA, where it hung out until this year when it was shipped back to the UK to be sold, I bought it as a non running project. Just one owner, and two thousand miles on the clock.
I also own a 1980 Kawasaki Z1000 – Mk2, this is a UK bike, found earlier this year in a barn, again it was a non running project, and has already this year been through a couple of changes, and is right now undergoing another, the paint as you can see is fresh in red and white, the wheels are soon to be returned to the factory spec of black with polished rims.
And lastly for now, my BMW R80ST, we are old friends, as this is my main bike, again when I bought it a few years back it was a long time non runner, but I took a chance, and it has turned out to be a great bike, we have toured around Europe and the UK, loaded up with camping equipment, or run around the back roads just for fun. Those who know will see it is not stock, but I only change things that need to be changed.
