Sorry about the delay, but I've been trying to track and stop the few remaining
hackers who still managed to get in, with some success. I've still not
got the sound working on the web cam so no video blogs as yet either.What
I have done in the meanwhile, well, see below.
I have paid for the bills for the site for another year
I've have been to Cassington
this year and published all the photo's, I've updated the Honda
pages, the Yamaha
page, & the Suzuki
page. Fixed the Vincent
page and added some more pages to it too. I have also fixed a few other
dead links where the hacker(s) has been taking out the links. I hope he
gives up soon.
I've also added a new Moto-Morini
page too, that's at least 900 file transfers in the last four days,
soI'm taking the rest of the weekend off resting and getting ready for
Ludgershall Bike Night, which is on Monday
I managed to get to the show. The weather looked doubtful most of
the day, but as soon as I decided to go anyway, the sun shone. We had sunshine
for most of the show and no rain at least. I took about 220 photo's and
have chesen 18 models to show. These are models are mainly new for my A-2-Z
rather being the best that thare there, but I did manage to get a couple
of the Vintage too. Space was shore, which hampered me getting good photo's
of many of the machines I'd liked to have too.
Tuesday was spent doing research on a few of the machines from
Mondays shoot, filing all the machines, adding logos' resizing and turning
some photo's around to get them at their best, usual stuff, very boring
and time consuming, but had to be done if I want them to look good
as well as having some info.
Wednesday I published half of the pages from the show. Today (Friday)
I finished the galleries from Ludgershall
and I'll be adding a few of those into the A-2-Z
later. Then I'll see if I can add the tyre company I met at Cassington
to my directories if I find time.
Next show is the John Wheeler Bike night, which we used to have
at West Hagbourne, I'll
have to find the new venue but I already most of you out there already
know. So not to panic (especially as I know there will e sending anyone
else turning up as West Hagbourne and telling you where the new venue is
(hope that's true).
Sorry I didn't update my page as soon as I should have. I did get
to the John Wheeler Bike Night.
It was raining, so not many showed up. I can't blame them really.
I got soaked. Anyway, I did publish the few photo's I took whilst there.
I have also found a better Global Suzuki web site, so I've changed
the link on my A-2-Z. Also whilst
looking for info on the little 1933
Alcyon, I found an Alcyon page.
I have added that too I am sure it is built the people who built the French
web site I have mentioned there, but the main site dissapeared a long time
ago. I hope it is them as they did a lot of research in the early days.
I'll have to do some digging and see if he has more than just Alcyon web
pages.. If I find them, I'll add them too.
At the moment, I'm adding Protyre shops to my English Directory...
all 25 shops that deal with the bike stuff. It's boring stuff, but I'll
get there, only another 22 left to do...
I've no added all the protyre shops to the directories, and split
my Avon (North Somerset) to
give the Brisol business' their
own page. I noticed the Swansea Protyre shop is not yet listed. I know
I found no bike shops on any lists when I built the directory back in '98,
and the're are a few more now. I'll add them in a while. For now, I have
a little more spannering to do on a neighbours machine.
Catch up with a lot of you later I guess.
I did make it to this years Fetival of Motorcycles, but the camera
failed. I've not replaced it yet as yet, but I will do so later this year,
in time for the NEC shows I hope.
Until then, I'm taking it easy and checking my history books
as I am sure there are many errors in the Vikings series. I'll publish
those officially later.

down load things, but I still have to find out to get the volume working.)

My Page 63
Thought I'd mention the 1.5 million hits in the last 11 months or so.,
no lie from my webalizer stat reader. I don't know how namy use the site,
but it is quite a few, it tells me roughly how many countries they come
from too. it's global,
(my hobby site. it is not a business' there is no advertizing, no phone
line to place an order, the bank advised me not to put an account for anyone
else to give me donations too, but there is an e mail address for you,
email@example.com. or stores if you have a uk based, Irish based or New
Zealand motorcycle business you want to list.)
