Introducing your guide
When I passed my bike test in 1976 Showaddywaddy were in the charts and the world’s fastest production bike was the mighty Laverda Jota. Within a week of getting my full licence I’d sold my Kawasaki 250 Samurai and bought a Suzuki T500 Cobra. A few years years later I bought a Laverda. It was a good time to be riding bikes.
Being from the North West of England I cut my trail riding teeth along the tracks and green lanes of Derbyshire, Lancashire and Cheshire. During 40 plus years of riding I’ve raced at circuits throughout the UK, ridden club trials and competed to gold medal standard in long distance off road events. A long time ago I even did a beach race. Once was enough.
