Best thing about SAM:
The members; a) Always friendly, b) not twowheeled psychopaths, c) always willing to help me learn and improve.
First bike ridden:
Nondescript Italian moped ridden around the back garden in 1959 aged 10 (the shrubs never did recover).
BMW R1200GS Adventure & Suzuki GSXR1000 K6
Close call, but it’s the Suzuki GSXR1000 K6
BSA 250cc C15 (A premonition that the British Bike Industry was about to go down the pan) – don’t get me started…….!
UK – A5 from Telford to Holyhead. Abroad – not ridden abroad yet (I assume the NW200 and TT doesn’t count).
Favourite food, drink, TV etc: Food; Italian, Drink; Adnams bitter, TV; Anything that is not either a Game show, Reality show, Cookery, Antique, Property, Celebrity, Soap or Sports program (excluding motorcycle racing, of course). Hobbies:
Motorcycling, Clay pigeon shooting.
Change one law:
Working at a school, it would have to be the ban on corporal punishment – lack of the fear of retribution is the biggest cause of disruption in schools.
Person I admire:
A chap I heard once gave a talk; he had just finished a solo walk to the North and South poles – unfortunately I cannot remember his name? Austin Vince runs a close second.
