While we're at it.... Me at Darley Moor in the late 80's (Attachment Link)

Used to race there myself. Couple of years ago I almost crashed a WW2 plane I was in onto the track, it dropped a valve whilst a 1500ft and the pilot had to look around for somewhere to glide it down onto, it was really weird, I was looking down trying to spot somewhere to land for him and saw the track, knew it instantly, as we were drifting down in total silence we were chatting about me racing there, lucky it was a Bi-Plane and glided quite well as we just managed to make the airfield we'd taken off from.

If I can find the pic I had taken just before we took off I'll post it, I look like Biggles  ;D ;D
Don't play stupid with me, I'm better at it

So long ago and I haven't changed a bit!  ;D

It seemed like a good idea at the time to fit a Rickman fairing and clip-ons to my 72 reg'd CB750 K1 (JML 60K) but it gave me the turning circle of a bus, so that stuff came off sharpish!

After a search and contact with the DVLA failed to find it some years back, the dealer Bill Bunn MCs in Ealing who sold it to me June 1977 contacted me through FB to say he'd run a HPI check and it appears it was written off in 1989.  :-\

When I've eventually finished recommissioning my 11/70 K1 I'll ride out to Richmond Park and recreate the photo in the car park near Roehampton gate, although of course they've tarmacked since.
