Well Lou a number of things really, I was a young BSA apprentice at the time, I had been sent to the London, ( Earls Court) motorcycle exhibition. Sunbeam corner was where people could have their photographs taken with a couple of "Bond" girls, as in 007 !. and a BSA Sunbeam scooter. I was just "trying" out the equipment !. What I learnt was that the scooter had to be supported from the back by some large pieces of wood because with three people sitting or leaning against it, it fell over ! It was very unstable, just like riding a scooter on the road, and secondly I decided that I like Motorcycles a lot more than scooters. I hope that you believe me.

Here you go Carlo. Snaps from '69 ~ '71 at Sandy Lane enduro / hare-n-hound in south N.J. / hill climb in PA. Thought the center of the universe was Birmingham, England....apparently, it wasn't.

Hello Bill, your style, looks like a big biker ........ ;) ;) ;)

Your photos are very beautiful.

Patt Hey, we are very envious of your photos !!!!!!

We have motorcycles photos, photos with cardboard boxes, photo with tractors, you have only photos with beautiful women. What a great character are you Pat!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The tractor is green?? Tractor Kawasaki?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thank you for your participation. Siete Fantastici tutti quanti!!!!

In Italy there is a proverb that says:

Women and motorcycles, joys and sorrows. Donne e motori, gioie e dolori!!

Hey Patt!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
