David That would have been news worthy.

I always loved motorbikes and there was always one in the family. My grandfather was killed on one in 1929, my father had one until 1939, my bro had them for years, I had a succession of small motorbikes up to 250 cc and hubby bought one on a sudden whim (BMW) which took us round Scandinavia, Spain and Portugal in the 1980s. Great memories.  Fantastic.

Pansy ( perhaps a little late) my first bike was an NSU Quickly (49cc) then a BSA Bantam (175cc) BSA C12 (250cc) BSA A7 (500cc twin) BSA Gold Flash (650cc) Triumph Bonneville (650cc) then a BSA Gold Star. 

I think there were others, but a tad late in the day to recall.

No, but I did the ton on the back of me bruvver's bike going up the newly opened M1 with not a car in sight. And no crash helmet for either of us.

 

Welcome to the club, Pansy....I used to do the M1 on my brand new Triumph Bonneville and BSA Gold Star. 

Not at the same time, I may add.

This is true - the first thing I  saw in colour was a pile of horse sh*t in Steptoe & Son.

 Yes, Lyn, it was like this one and mum & dad did buy it to see the coronation.

I was 14 then, honest!
