Old boy setting the pace

Working up around the Edinburgh area today. Was driving up the A1 and onto the Edinburgh bypass early this morning when I see a bike coming up behind at speed. Passes me, overtaking and undertaking around other cars at speed, quick filtering up to a roundabout and then zipping in and out the lanes on the 4-lane roundabout. Slotting into gaps like a pro, then off like a rocket and out of sight.

Old school 1950/60s era bike… not got a clue what it was as classics are not my thing. Tweed gear, old skool boots, old skool helmet, googles. The old boy was riding the tits off this bike and could show every supersports rider I’ve seen in the last year a thing or two.


bet he had haggis for breakfast and needed the loo.
