    BMW K1. Dream bike or nightmare?

    BMW made 'old cock engines'. That was clearly the perception of the more dynamic motorcyclists after the arrival of the large, fast Japanese four-cylinder.

    Harley-Davidson: A chiseled purchase?

    Then you have a few tensions: Factory original copies are rare. Plus the well-known statement “You don't write anything off on a Harley”. The bike in the photos started life as an 883 Sportster.

    Triumph Bonneville. A memory

    Recently I drove for a client on a new one Triumph Bonneville. An iconic motorcycle type from a brand with an illustrious name. A tribute to everything that was once British.

    Triumph Thunderbird - A Thunderbird and a girl

    The village I once came from was really just one attraction. And that was a young woman who had one Triumph Thunderbird drove. It was long before I became interested in old bikes and young women, but the hum of the twin still buzzes in my memory on fine days. Sun More
