My friend's know me as "Percy".
I'm a 47 year old hippy-biker...been riding since I was 15 - learned to ride off-road, passed the new fangled two part test in 1982. worked in insurance claims for 26 years, from tea boy to claims manager with several well known insurance companies. trained as an instructor with a DSA approved driving school doing CBT's. Have had the usual "schoolboy error" accidents - mostly in the early days. Have had more near misses than I care to think about! somehow managed to have not broken a bone (yet) other than the one in my head...but have had some life-threatening accidents. kind of life-building experiences. I could go on all day here but I guess you don't want a life history - I'll save that for the book lol.
What Bikes/Trikes do you own

What type of music do you like
Music plays (sic) a huge role in my life and has since I was very young. There isn't much music I don't like. I refuse to have a telly and have radio2 on mostly. Am a huge music fan. have sung live am a proper tart when it comes to karaoke. fave bands shitloads! hawkwind, feelgood, hamsters, zz, ac/dc rock, blues, acid house, psychadelic, jazz, funk, soul, blues, classical, SICKNOTE - best band of the moment IMHO. if it's good I'll like it!
Have you had a Bike/Trike accident that you want to tell us about
Have had lots of minors, couple of near death experiences. Spent 20+ years dealing with personal injury claims for the insurance industry and usually being "the only biker in the office" used to get to deal with a lot of injury claims involving bikes and bikers. I would say that I probably have an understanding from both sides when it comes to accidents, injuries and the way it affects lives, the law, medical issues...I could go on but I don't want to bore the pants off you! :-)
