The constant danger to we Motorcyclists, etc.....Folks using Mobile phones and not being aware of their surroundings!

It's May Spring Bank Holiday in the Land of the Angles and Saxons at the moment

Which means thunder, lightning, and torrential rain...as always...

So, a flashback to last Sunday in the glorious warm sunshine...a distinct rarity in Angleland.

A journey from Hereford to Abergavenny in Wales for the regular Sunday meet up with all the Bikers in the Bus Park!

Then a nostalgic trip from Abergavenny to Monmouth along the original country road, (before the new Dual Carriageway/Freeway was built)...>>>

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eycH3DcEpYc&t=462s

Then back home again to Hereford along the old Monmouth to Hereford 'Bus route...>>>

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UunzSbVPoSE&t=8s

A rare memorable trip in glorious sunshine!

Lots of memories of what England looked like on my various road/bus/train trips in the 1930's, 1940's, and 1950's...

...when there was little, or no traffic on the roads, very few people, and the Sun always shone on me!

Enjoy Folks!

Time for some fun and laughter...>>>

Following on from one of my recently posted Youtube videos of my travel to the shops...>>>

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2DZD1j7Nm-w

One of my many American/Canadian Biker Chums uploaded a special Youtube video in response to it, featuring himself and me!...>>>

Bloody Hillarious!.....All because of my studded Knuckle-Duster gloves!

Have a read through all the Comments!

A grand crowd, and loads of fun!

Beware of Rebellious Rebel Riding Rousers...with chrome-studded, fingerless gloves!

Hello!

Hope Paul doesn't mind me sharing this, but with modifiying the Slash/Turn out pipe baffles I decided to do a comparison between them both, and thought I'd film it on the trusty action cam:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oPL4jFDP6-s

The original exhausts where around 95db, and with the modded baffles the ones on are just shy of 108db.

Hello Chums!

We are having some awesome fantastic Motorcycling weather the past few weeks, so I am making the most of it with rides every day!

Last Sunday's sunny trip to Abergavenny, in Wales, for our regular Motorcycle meet-up!

Part of the return trip back home again to Hereford!...>>>

Pandy to Pontrilas!

...and the Sunday before, a wonderful ride through the Royal Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire!...>>>

The joys of having Gyro Stabilization built-in to my Camera!

Every now and again my rides become really scary.... :? .....

A ride into the fiery depths of Hell in the Underworld of the City of Hereford!!...>>>>

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NS2_R80lpNQ

Venture there at your peril!

The visit and its survival are always worth a few dregs of Jack Daniels upon reaching home safely!.... :o ....!

Many thanks for watching, as always, Folks!.... :D ...!

"Maylord Orchard's Underground Car Park", in the Town Centre!

My favourite parking place where I can safely? chain my bike up to the railings.....

...and hope, when I return, that she is still there waiting for me!.... :pray: ....

...and not in the back of some toe-rag's pickup truck, never to be seen again*!..... :twisted: ....!

Many thanks for watching, Den!... :dance: ...!

Paul.... :mrgreen: ....!

Memory Lane stuff!

The final part of the exploration of the old; "Roman Road" (A4103) in Hereford City that I remember motorcycling in the 1940's and onwards!

Part 3:

Little of it left now, as shown in this video.

Remembering all the amazing results of the road-building, etc, work, that the Romans accomplished in Britain, two thousand years ago!
(They used pebble-stones then, instead of Tarmac!)...LOL...!

Heya Fozzer... After reading a lot of your posts I must say, in using the vernacular here in the area of Earth that I'm living in: You rock ! :-) Am glad you are here.
Myself, have been from the Atlantic to the Pacific on scoots though have been a no-rider for some time now. No one can take those adventures from us. No fear, but a healthy respect.
