I have always been interested in motors, whether it be 2 wheeled or 4 wheeled and spent much of my youth on 2 wheels without an engine but made several attempts to fit old lawnmower engines to bikes. My dad had various 125cc and 200cc James bikes but like most, moved to 4 wheels when family arrived.

In 2008, a family friend had just returned from a six week European trip and having listened to the stories, I decided that it was now or never. I got my first proper bike – a Honda Deauville and used it mainly for pleasure and the Photo Rally. After an altercation with a gravel patch - I updated to a BMW R1100rt but now have a 2014 R1200rt LC.

I love working on bikes and do my own servicing on the BMW and can bury myself in the shed for hours….. not enough - I now own a 1977 Honda CB400f which I am restoring from the crankshaft up. I have been on trips to Scotland and Wales but have not ventured further yet…. will get there some day!!!!!
