The day my love of motorcycles began
I first got into bikes at a very early age, my Dad had a combo but I was too young to appreciate that but when my uncle took me for a ride on his scooter when I was about 7 or 8 years old I was totally hooked. From that day forward all I wanted was my own bike, lucky for me we lived in the country and had access to a lot of dirt tracks and fields so I got my first bike just before I was 12 years old.
Mostly old British bikes, BSA’s and Triumphs with my first road legal bike being a BSA Baracuda, then a BSA Road Rocket then at just 17 I bought a new Triumph Bonneville. In May 2012 I bought my dream bike, a Harley Davidson Fatboy.
What is the best thing about riding your motorbike? Maybe that’s a question no one can really answer, it’s just one of those things that can’t be explained, you have to live it to understand I guess.
Personally, I will use any excuse for a ride out and that’s certainly the same for most bikers.
There are a lot of different kinds of bikes but for me it’s choppers and other custom bikes, Harley Davidsons and good old british bikes, but each to their own I guess, a bike is a bike and they all offer a sense of freedom and escape.
We will be adding a few pics and info from different runs and will soon have a feature where you can join and upload your own pics and info yourself so stay tuned for more on this.
