IT'S ALMOST OVER




DRAGS


Spanish Haul





2000 and fuckin' 10...Yeah! Hooray! Never thought I'd be glad to see the back of it. I can now focus on the coming year with a new website and the camaraderie of good friends.

Over the year or so I have been clicking away. Clicking away at The Drags, The shop and The Hayride. Some of the pictures came out quite well and I have already posted them. Some I forgot about. These are the ones that I shall keep posting up until the New Year. Some might even make it onto the new website and online shop Vintique Cycles So check it out.

Loss of a Friend


Not been around my Mac the past few weeks as a Close Friend of mine passed away suddenly. He had recently recovered from Terminal Liver Cancer and had been given another chance at life ( and riding his Triumphs!) with a Liver Transplant early on in the year. He came to visit a couple of weeks ago and then went over to a mutual friends place where he suffered a Brain Aneurysm. He never regained consciousness and died a week later in hospital. His partner Caz, sister Kate, Ewen, Leslie and I were with him at the time. He will be sadly missed by all. His funeral went well and was attended by hundreds of friends and colleagues. He used to run a blog giving inspiration and hope to other Cancer patients. He was a great inspiration to everyone...

VISIT FROM THE MEN FROM THE NORTH



Guy and Pete came down to the Shop today from sunny Yorkshire to take pics of Benny and Zippy's bike. Tell you what ... those bikes sure look cool. The weather wasn't too hot either. Me and Pete sheltered in the Jeep for warmth. We must be getting soft. Check out Pete's blog HERE and go and buy THIS
