So the stroke was a misdiagnosis in 2009. just found out 2.5 years later its spondylitic myelopathy and after operation now have spastic quadraparesis all of the above translates into spinal cord compression so useless from the neck down! Now fighting it best as! Now retired and getting finance together for next trike when illness stops changing.
Been riding since i was 14 learnt on a succession of villiers powered bikes ; Excelsior, Francis barnett BSA Bantam. first crash was on a Honda 50, the front brake locked the leading link suspension shot up and the whole thing slid down the road for yards. I held on tight and was saved by the strength of the plastic leg gaurds. At 18 i bought a TS 250 Suzuki great fun around london for a couple of Years then traded up to the new 550Honda. Sold that on after a few years did the car thing and went back to a T140v Triumph, great bike! Did the ACU National rally x 2and a few others . Sold that wentvtravelling came back and got a Harley1200flh. In '91 co produced the HD rally atv Cheltenham Race course. Had to sell the bike cos of debt and health so now getting better and wanna get back to it all and also help others who are less fortunate than me cos I reckon I was lucky!!! Married 2 x grown up daughters. In hospital my stroke consultant said to me " Nico,you dropped cos you partied so hard!" so nice call but he knew shit!
