How very true
thats exactly how it was in the late 50s early 60s. 650s were the fastest things on the road. Cars were struggling to maintain 60mph and with a top speed of 70mph the bike could run rings around just about everything. Mind you at 4 gallons of 99 octane petrol for £1 you didnt mind opening the throttle just for the sound of them pipes!" />
Notice too most people smiling and smoking not seen these days much.

Bit at 2.36 my local park & they still have a bike training school there
I don't get angry, I get even
Ah the good old day's. My era. First new bike BSA C15, Reg HBA 106D i only wish i cold find ir now, i wouls buy it.
Rudyard lake ride outs......................oh the memories
Then. No cameras, yellow lines everywhere, humps, traffic calming, and just look at the ages of the riders, now most bike meets are like a Darby and Joan meeting.
That bought back a few memories.
Round the cones on a Bantam (my first bike), seeing all those cars, most of which I've owned or driven the same make amd model. Even the lawnmower looked familiar. I was still using one of those until 1999.
No crash helmets meant the most tangled hair I've ever had in my life and I think we had the silk scarf (just reinstated mine) and fishermans sock conversation a few weeks ago.
Happy days but I think I prefer things as they are today.
Nice post, Kam. I enjoyed that.

That Gold and Black Stadium
helmet with the (jap flyers) goggles just like my old lid (fibre glass helmet cost me £4-9-6d) in '66.
that stuff Kam. Ta.
Great find, didn't bring back any memories though, I'm a 90's kid . I do love the older bikes.
