  • Best Times
  • Riding down through France on my Norton Commando back in the late 70's. Any warm sunny day when I'm out on the bike
  • Worst Times
  • Facing a £1000 bill for engine rebuild and sliding under the front of a car which pulled out of a side road and crunching my old Norton into a write off.
  • Previous Adventures
  • Too many places to mention in UK, most of Europe especially Ireland and the Alps. Off road tours of the mountains and deserts of Morocco, Namibia, South Africa, USA, Nepal
  • Planned Adventures
  • Timbuktu (how predictable), Round the World (Even more predictable) and something unpredictable such as the Ice Roads of Canada and Alaska

Hi Alun It was somewhat difficult to find how to email about my subscription (there is no "contact us" on the webpage"). I subscribed in mid Aug but have yet to receive issue 18 which I can see from the website is already out?
my email address is Thanks for advising.

Getting there Steve, if 'there' is back at work but it'll be a while yet before I'm out on two wheels. See you when I am, or if you're passing the office pop in for a brew.
