Default 1970's

Christ that Honda brings back memories,................ "1970" I was in the Carlisle chapter of the Hell Riders our base was in the old Brewery in Currock St, bloody good crack that was........ wish I could bring back those days.

Todays Bikers would love the quiet roads of the 70's and the odd battle with mirrored up Vespa's riding Mods: he he.

I had a German WW2 helmet as well bloody uncomfortable but I thought I looked cool ha ha.

Yup, the good old days. Can't see myself on there but it was the first London show I went to on the bike with the old North West lot. A bunch of us must have ridden over Vauxhall bridge a dozen times trying to find the ferkin place. Went the following year as well, got the badge for that one but must have been too broke to get one first time round. I'm getting old now so can't remember

Ha Ha aye it would run in reverse, I used to swop the plug leads on my old Yam 125 twin and bump start it backwards and it ran perfect in reverse,It was my party trick that was until the gearbox mainshaft nut unscrewed itself and wrecked the gearbox

Good old days

They were pretty good little bikes, far better than my 1st road bike a BSA C15absolute shite pissed oil everywhere that was before the big end went 20mls from home I hated the bastard.I see them at local Vintage rallies and the owners tell you how good they were blah blah blah, they obviously never pushed one 20 f*cking miles.

I've had to push every bike I've ever owned at some point or another. Thought my pushing days were finally over...then last July in the Cotswolds......
