I'm married and currently have SEVEN grand-children (please god no more!). I've been a biker since I was 14 (40 years!) and have had a few accidents along the way! My first bike was a Francis Barnet 197 (...... are you still awake?) and many others too numerous to mention (thank christ for that I hear you say!). Self employed in Property Maintenance ........ blah! blah! blah! Love motorcycles, always have ... always will (... and Street Rods!). My pet hates are Bike Snobs, Bull-Shitters and Robbie Williams. My pet loves are Greyhounds and Lurchers ... possibly the most beautiful dogs on god's earth.
What Bikes/Trikes do you own
I own a 1959 Triumph 650 Tiger 110 which I've been restoring for the last 30 years .... nearly there! My current ride is a BMW K100 ..... and I won't have a word said against them!
What type of music do you like
My taste in music varies from 1950's Rock n Roll to AC/DC. My favorite band of all time is the Beach Boys.
Have you had a Bike/Trike accident that you want to tell us about
I've had my fair share of bike accidents over the past 40 years or so, some my fault and some not. Not much to say on this subject really except that I am one of the lucky ones to still be alive! Guardian Angels .... you bet!
I am Mrs. Anna Kokou, an aging widow suffering from long time illness (Esophageal Cancer). I have some important information (charity proposal) for you, May God continue to bless you, Please reply (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more details.
Howdo Clive. Yep he's on the move & will keep the fingers crossed about the new neighbours. I've been tempted to get another bike for a year or so now, but after going to the NEC with Delboy now know which one will suit. It had to be smaller & lighter than before, so thinkng of downsizing to the Kwak 250cc.
Only just started "priming" the missus about it, & obviously she's not at all comfortable with it & will struggle to handle the idea. But think it'll be ok. Problem is I'm also gonna have to have arguments with most of my family, colleagues & some friends. Ah what the heck, I don't really care if they think I'm nuts ....
I have been to Billy Bobs too-very large doings going on there-I live about 150 miles from Carrolton/DFW area
went to a M/C ralley today it was so windy I had to lean left on a right bank-LOL then in the middle of the turn the wind would switch-thank God for centrifical force.Hell of a ride and about 38 degrees F. standing still-Karen has made me some chili and I am surely going to enjoy it-Got a fire in the fireplace and the troops are watching out for my freedoms and life is great/Wish the world could have peace and we as humans could put aside our differences.... Would love to see you put up some pictures of that 59 Tiger -in the build is just as good ,sometimes as the finish product-
