My dad used to have an Indian one of the 4 cylinder ones way way back in the day. If only he had kept it :(

Motorcycles are awesome and I admit I always feel a bit jealous when I see motorcyclist cruising along a scenic route on a beautiful day. But I would just feel too vulnerable on one. I trust my own driving ability. It is the idiots driving around me I don't trust. And it isn't that I am totally risk adverse. I sky dive.

Maybe once my kids are grown I will feel safe taking a little more risk.

Poole Quay bike night is a weekly summer meet, and one week THREE Vincents turned up and were mobbed by a drooling crowd. They were so pissed off when TWO Brough Superiors rolled in and stole their fans!

I've never been one to be enthralled by speed on a bike or "sexy" looks. I'm more of a "comfort" and "reliability" kind of guy. So...other than a brief period involved with dirt bikes, this is more my style.
