Indeed it is - seems to be enjoying it - would have looked really cool if he had been wearing a flying helmet and goggles!!!

We went to see this a couple of years back.I think they may even have the same bikes (bar the horrible CM200's they had in addition to the Indians).

I think Kenny Boy may have 'photoshopped' himself on a couple of those pics.

I've seen the Wall Of Death at St Agnes Steam Rally with original Indians. Superb.

These guys or an outfit very similar,were a regular atraction at 'Bridgewater Fair' not so long ago,they were great!They also had 'Indian' bikes,and even a go-kart! When I was younger you could even get in the ''Boxing Booth''with a seasoned old pro to see if you could go three rounds and earn a few quid!...as a 19yr old amateur I found out the hard way they did'nt play by the A.B.A rules I was used too! or any others for that matter ha! {managed two!}All good fun though!
Health and saftey ha!!........However did we survive without them!!!

Maybe we didn't. When my eldest was being delivered, I asked the Midwife why they were making such a fuss as women had been giving birth for 1000's of years. She replied, 'Yes, and women have been dying in childberth for 1000's of years'.

Ever so slightly OT but if you haven't seen the film 'The World's Fastest Indian'
I highly recommend it, I stumbled across it a couple of months ago without knowing the story and it was superb.
