Black Bike – low seat, aped bars, hard tail, straight pipes… we’re talkin’ ATTITUDE! Don’t mess with this sister; she’ll chew ya up and spit you out so much as glower at you. Ebony chopper matches her black tank top and bandanna.

Sunny Days

Field of Dreams – late summer grass sward under a clear sky. A countryside journey’s rest accompanied by twirlpling nightingale’s singing from unseen heights.

Give me the splendid silent sun, with all his beams full-dazzling;

Give me juicy autumnal fruit, ripe and red from the orchard;

Give me a field where the unmow’d grass grows;

Mashie or Niblick? What better way to head to The Links than on a trusty BSA with your dog as co-pilot? Better make sure the wheels don’t get snagged by an errant Baffing Spoon!

Rouge dans la Nuit

Red Molly – flowing crimson locks under a moonlit star-studded sky. The muse in Richard Thompson’s most known song; who was given the keys for a ’52 Black Lightning by her dying beau James Adie, as he gasps his last breath from injuries sustained from armed robbery.

Illustrator Brett Breckon from the UK has created a stunning vision of le femme Moto.

Using a process called scraperboard it is the removal of black ink to reveal a white subsurface. The dark mass of a Vincent and it’s leather-clad rider are perfect for such a media.

Cowhide Couple – the twosome that ride together ‘hide together. Prim pair sporting neat and stiff Langlitz Leathers. These Cascade jackets are still available from the 70 year old manufacturer. Spanking new Triumph is ‘fashion accessory’.

The Comets Tale: ex-RAF strip at Church Lawford near Rugby saw speed events such as this drag racing in ‘65. A half liter Vincent is the perfect vehicle upon which swiss-miss Margret Reiser has a snappy launch along the quarter mile runway. Apparently she rode the Comet all the way from Switzerland.

O my Luve’s like a red, motorcycle,

That’s newly put in tune:

O my Luve’s like the Bonneville,

That’s quickly rode vroom, vroom.

Put the kettle on Sid!

Steam Punk Rocker – Nicely sorted custom, built from a Triumph Scrambler, for racer, and former boxer, Sarah Lahalih. Created by the capable mechanic-artisan shop Garage Company owned by Los Angelean Yoshinobu Kosaka. Using a flat-track theme its low lines a reflected in the smooth grain of a wooden seat and crescent swept back handlebars. A leather clad tank, tanned to a warm complexion, with stitched “Triumph” logo emphasize the boardtrack chassis vision, supplemented with a springer fork front end. The leather strapped Pendleton wool blanket completes the look. All she needs is a South West weave covered water canteen and an adventure road from the nineteen twenties beckons. Westward Ho!

Sex Sells

Descriptive Leader – when illustrating the superlative virtues of a new and better item it was all the rage to label obvious physical particulars as top-notch characteristics you couldn’t do without. Of course… draping a lassie along the length of it goes a long way too…

Volpe found!

Inspector Clouseau – Britt Ekland sits pillion whilst Peter Sellers takes the captains saddle on this classy Moto Guzzi V700. It may have been whilst they were filming the joint British/Italian film “After the Fox”. The best bit in that film is a restaurant scene where Maria Grazia Buccella plays the beautiful Miss Okra.

Lords & Ladies – I was kindly informed that yesterday’s post were society photographer Patrick Anson, also known as Lord Lichfield, and Swedish actress, and ex-wife of Peter Sellers, Britt Ekland. Being in the thick of the swinging sixties he was always surrounded by beautiful women. A better view of that Honda.
