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.
