Welcome To My Motorcycles Website

Thanks for stopping by the Musuem of Motorcycles website. As you can see this site is currently receiving a bit of a facelift as we get ready for some awesome new content, featuring some of your and my favourite motorbikes.

Whether you are a new rider, an experienced motorcylist, or are simply a non-riding enthusiast you are very welcome here.

I was initially bitten by the motorcycling bug on a trip to India when I first heard the distinctive sound of an old Royal Enfield machine. I didn’t have a license at the time so wasn’t confident in renting or buying one for a trip on the open roads, but a couple of short trips as a passenger convinced me that I wanted one.

Upon my return to the UK I passed my test and found an old Enfield that belonged to an uncle. 3 months of restoration later and I was good to go, turning heads as I drove through my local village with that distinctive sound.

Needless to say, on my next trip to India I bought a similar machine for $800 from an Australian traveller, rode it for three glorious months around the cities, deserts and jungles, then sold it to another traveller for $750. The best 50 bucks I’ve ever spent!

I have to give thanks to my friends Matt and Nikki at MTS motorcycle training school, Sussex who gave me the idea for the website in the first place. I did my lessons with them and love their commitment to their students. Sorry, didn’t mean to embarrass you guys ūüėČ

Please bookmark the site and stop by soon when there will be some exciting bike-related content.

In the meantime to whet your appetite here are a couple of YouTube videos I love.
