She's a big un this week. Not for any particular reason, it's just the way it works out sometimes I suppose. Starting off this weeks with an image of me at my last ever race meeting that I actually entered into. All my useless mates in the background, thinking about pubs and hot lunches, while I toiled away changing clutches from my road GT in the background to the race bike. It didn't work out in the end, I had a pretty miserable day with bad clutches and pissing down weather. having said that though I caught up with my mates that night and had a great time, so one thing balances the other I guess. She's a big week in other ways as well, I turn a very large O number this week, shit how the time has flown by. It has given me time to reflect on the past few years and all the while the remaining constant in my life is the motorcycles and the friends I have made through motorcycles. I've just about run the spectrum really mad firebreak blazing days, motocross, road racing, a fairly major sponsor of motorcycle racing, dispatching in London, customizing motorcycles, retailing them and pretty much riding every road I've come across, plus 108 motorcycles that I have personally owned. I like to think that this gives me pretty good knowledge of most bikes and what they are like to ride. A couple of big hospital visits along the way too it has to be said. I recall one doctor waking me up and saying we nearly had to amputate your leg last night, I was back out riding with the plaster on 4 weeks later. I cant count the bones I have broken and the bourbons I have drunk in these past years, but it still all adds up to my love of this passion, the people, the good times. And all of this brings me to this juncture now. Thank you all for being a very very big part of this crazy life that
I have had to date.
I have had to date.
There's not really that much to them.
A little while ago my friend Dallas with and E called by and dropped off a couple of CD's ( so old now my pc doesn't even have a CD slot), but on them was an amazing collection of racing back in the day here in New Zealand, such a fantastic time really, and these images bring back a lot of memories of that time. I didn't race then, preferring the comfort of the bourbon, beers and bench seats of the day, but I wish I had. Thanks Dallas
And even some of Dallas's trips overseas. probably never been seen images really
