I lived in the heyday of the club in Langley, Slough
I now live in Slough.
Two daughters with Lindsey b1983 Laurie
They moved with Lindsey to North Devon in 1987
I got married 1997 to Linda still married 2013
Bike I would be remembered for
Yam RD350 1974 UBH 13N if you could read it though the smoke behind
Between the RD350 my present bike ST1100 as favourite.
Norton 750 fastback as worst.
Owned nearly 3 years and spent 30months off road-not aided by HGB or the hassles at NVT at the time
Transport Today (2013)
Honda ST1100 pan. Old mans bike that seems invisible to the police, thank god.
Have faired bike cos knees lock up in icy conditions now but I need to ride daily.
The adrenalin of filtering at 80plus on the motorway is better than caffeine
My memories of the club
Devon obviously. Dragging little Eddie out of the caravan clubhouse on a sat night with Rebel just as he started having a fit. Ride outs to coast always great. Parties at various houses Hayes, The Dingle Shack in Uxbridge and at my place Byron House Langley......More to follow.
My hobbies today are
London Pride and live music...... more to follow
At my funeral please arrange to have the following played
The Laurel and Hardy theme.
To remind anyone who attends how sombre the event is. (pawl bearers to drop coffin half way into room dressed as L and H -which activates a recording from within the coffin of "that's another fine mess you've got me into Stanley")
Next, a rousing version of Jerusalem- can't beat a bit of patriotism
And lastly, Always look on the bright side of life.
