  1. Hi Robin, I'm Alan and I live in Glasgow now (last 4 years). Prior to that I lived in Worthing for 20 years and still fly down to see friends every so often.

Until 3 weeks ago I hadn't ridden a bike for 36 years but I'm still alive and promise to warn you if I'm out and about in your neck of the woods! Th

    Hello all, just registered and have a feeling I'm already doing things wrong (maybe shouldn't have had that last beer). If I am, please correct me and advise of rules and protocols. I'm an old guy who has picked up biking again after 36 years (I know, I know) and I really enjoy my Dragstar 125. Have already read and been amused by (in a fun way) by some threads. I have never ridden a cruiser before ( I know it's only a baby cruiser) and I understand and appreciate all the comments about how different it is. Having said that, I love it. I love the "smell the roses" feel of it and the fact that
