Re: Kids Motorcycle

Just go on ashton heath , that's what we used to do in the late 70s -early 80s on our Honda 50s it was a great laff , then some spoilsport / nosey neighbour would phone the old bill and they would chase us off, we used to escape down the railway lines either to golborn or haydock. This is what life is all about a bit of fun we wernt doing anybody any harm and we never endangered the public . Go on go for it , it never did me or my mates any harm.

Sid times have changed and nobody now will put up with the noise and damage caused by a motorcycle and if the rider is caught the cycle could be crushed
