To all the rest of you "old duffers" who were lucky enough to ride Mopeds before our dear Government neutered them.. I was lucky.. I inherited my older sisters 'ped which was still unrestricted.. read this book and smile..

Then think about what you're saying when you complain about groups of young "hooligans" whizzing about the shopping centre estates on twist'n go scoots....

Sounds like a good alternative activity at the RIbnet meet. Hubby has an impressive scar from his biking days in Zimbabwe

I wrote of the first bike I ever owned Bennelli 100cc bet not many peps had one of them what a piece of junk used to die everytime it rained so I was always late for work after stopping to dry the spark plug cap which allowed me to travel another half a mile up the road before the same thing happend again then I did the decent thing and smashed it to pieces going round a corner and getting it completely wrong

Nice one JK. When you've had a bit of practice you can get one of these. My trusty Honda Blackbird is now an Osprey Viper Actually it can be seen around the Pompey area Mon-Fri when the weather is good, cos a man from the navy bought it

If some of you lot feel old starting to ride on Jap bikes, I donít know what that makes me!
I started on a BSA bantam off road but my first road bike was a Matchless 250 CSR, now lets see if anyone knows what one of them is.

Whoa! I had pictures of the Matchless on my bedroom wall, and the AJS equivalent. Christ, I feel old now. Ended up buying a Royal Enfield Crusader Sports and then a Gold Star 500. Real bikes - nearly killed me though, I spent 6 months in Croydon General Hospital after an unfortunate meeting with a Mk 1 Consul.

Biking days - over, period, but the '60s's was a great time to bike, no speed limits, very few cars and plod couldn't catch you until they got the Daimler Darts.
