I bought my first licence for £1 on my 16th birthday - No test in dem dark days. And also then bought a Honda 50!!

Have always been a bike enthusiast, love road racing, raced as a grass track sidecar passenger. Left road biking after marriage (like many of us) Got back about 25 years ago with the purchase of a BMW R90s which I still enjoy, and have gone through a few Honda VFRs and now  on my second  Yamaha Tracer.  

Club Member for over 10 years.

Since I retired I have now the time to go touring and have Bern fortunate  to have visited most countries in Europe and also Morocco. Like many club members, the Photo Rally has also been a firm favourite biking event.
