Silence moves faster when it's going backwards (Jean Cocteau)
The bikes the bikes...
I've been riding now for rather longer than I care to remember. In chronological order I've owned the following:
Mobylette 50cc moped (scrapped)
BSA Bantam 175 (traded)
Kawasaki KE125 (blown up)
Honda 400/4 (sold)
And I ride them on my favourite local roads...
