A couple of weeks ago I went for a ride with a few mates, about two hundred of them.

On a long stretch of dual-carriageway we found that we'd picked up an additional rider. A young lad on his 50cc moped found himself gradually surrounded by the column of bikes as he was overtaken from both sides until he was right in the heart of the pack.

There he was minding his own business and now he was part of a big loud organised demo run. His face was a picture. He kept looking all around him as if he couldn't quite believe what he was seeing. He had no idea what was happening or what to do but keep on going.

Not the actual moped rider
He stuck with us for about a mile before peeling off down a side road at speed, looking over his shoulder all the while.

At the very least he will have a story to tell his mates.

Long Necked

Out for a run at the weekend and this radical Swedish-style chopper turned up. Powered by a S&S motor it's the front forks that really catch your attention. I imagine it is great on long straights, but it struggled a bit in city traffic.

Space Saver

I think that I'd rather have the extra fuel, to be honest.

Scooting Around

Not really a scooter person, but you have to admire this early model Lambretta with it's PAV trailer.
