    My Picture...

    My picture is my life. It took many years to understand that my life is a game. I abandoned it for years altogether for I was scared of all the pain it has caused me, the torment it has caused me, and the shattering of confidence it has caused. Every time I found myself wandering...

    Since I was a teenager I was mad about motors, cars and motorcycles. I passed my bike test in 1967 and that was the start of a long love affair with two wheeled transport. That ended when I married; my wife was not keen at all on bikes then, so I confined my activities to the...

    I took the photo in my avatar,

    but in order to remain anonymous, didn't take one of me :) but I thought the tree was somehow beautiful, withered and skeletal though it was. I loved the colour of the sky behind as well- I just thought that pic suited me :)
