What is a motorcycle?......
« on: 19.05. 2016 14:54 »
For any of you missing this month's VMCC magazine here is a great definition submitted by Andy Pugh alongside a photo of roadside repairs to his Ner a Car.

"A motorcycle is a bicycle with a pandemonium attachment, and is designed for the especial use of mechanical geniuses, daredevils and lunatics"
- George Fitch, Atlanta Constitution Newspaper, 1916

 *smile*

I am now forever going to think of my BSA engines as pandemonium attachments
Never tell people your troubles. Half of them are not interested and the other half are glad you're getting what's coming to you.

A motorcycle is stress relief. Encountering cars on the same stretch of road is pandemonium. *pull hair out*
