We had a good Xmas thanks. I hope you did too?
Any progress on your bike?

I've collected a fair few bike books myself over the years.
Anything from old British to chops and customs to road racing. 2nd hand book shops are a good source of bike books. Had a few gems for only a couple of quid.

Most of my books are custom bike, Harley related. I also have a load of mc related books. They compliment my cheesy biker movie collection

Got rakes of reference books for military motorcycles and a brilliant true life story 'Hot motors, cold feet' by Helmut Gunther. If you are interested in WW2 history or motorcycling in general it is a fascinating read, being a Despatch rider with the SS-Division 'Reich' in Russia amongst other stories. I also have books on the Angels, Black back patch groups and bikes in film. Like my music, my reading is quite eclectic.

Helmut's autobiography (or part one translated into English) was still available on Amazon a couple of years ago for those who may be interested.

I've got a few biographies and autobiographies featuring a lot of the major, a less so back batch clubs. The ex HA prez, George Christies is a good one

I remember in the early 70's an book that was banned at our school for reading it and that was titled "Chopper" (and one would get detention and have it confiscated by the teachers if found with it, it was a private boarding school, so that would explain the hard attitude towards the book! So the book was deemed must read amongst us boarders. the copy that went around got well thumbed, almost as much as a copy of playboy, Mayfair, or Men Only!!

I've got it, it's very reflective of the time, not aged well.

That's a very fair comment. I think I was 12 when I read Chopper and there were several other similar paperbacks getting dog eared in our school satchels.

I've also got quite a large collection of alternative books spanning several decades about UFOs and ETs.
I've had some interesting encounters over the years which defy any logic or reason. Not for the faint hearted though.

You weren't far off there Matey! Gosfield Private Borstal for Boys! most of the kids were there because the dad's were in the forces. That was when we had an Army, Navy and Air Force based around the world! And the rivalry and bullying was rife!

I think if there were any ET's in Area 51 they would be dead ones. Because any intelligent life form that could travel across the universe and land on Earth to observe, they would definately have the ability to claok themelves AKA the Klingons, Romulans etc....
