Useful Idiots


Do you think some people use music to distract them from real life?

Escape from reallity - a ride on my 1949 Vincent Black Shadow although it would be nice to not have so much traffic on the road nowadays.

Thanks Guys yes I have lusted over one of those bikes for years and have always had classic Brittish bikes . Can you imagine my absolute joy when my wife and daughter asked me to come to the garage on the morning of my retirement. I was expecting to hear my daughter say she had pranged the car and was ready for it. I got to the garage and I saw that the car was ok and they then said look behind the car I thought here we go someone has banged into the rear. I cannot say how I felt as I looked and saw that black beast I had dreamt of owning for decades. I just stood there with tears flooding from me, I was literaly waiting to hear the words that they had hired it for the day but no they said it was mine just don't look in the pension pot for a while. Can't tell you how happy I am now as it takes me back to the late 60s when my pal had a Black Prince and we used to swap his Prince for my Comando and we would go on days away up the Scottish Highlands.
Yes the CB750 is a fine bike but it is a pile of rust in ten years time.
