  1. Sadly I had to give up motorcycling just over 4 years ago. I'd been riding bikes for over 30 years but was prescribed some medication which affected my balance so was advised - quite wisely - to give biking a rest for a while. Do I miss it? Not especially, but you know when there's a deep-rooted itch that refuses to go away? From 1987 - yours truly on my gorgeous RGA Jota, one of only 35 which were modified by Roger Winterburn (of Windy Corner). Laverda RGA1000 Jota by Boxertrixter, on Flickr In Switzerland, 2001: Scan-150104-0008 22.04.45 by Boxertrixter, on Flickr Blackbird - 2009, A68 at 7.30am. Put over 90k miles on this bike, and apart from 3 new rectifiers (and a new CCT every 30k) it never missed a beat. P1000817_2 by Boxertrixter, on Flickr When one isn't enough...

  2. Lincolnshire sky: Wrong camera by Boxertrixter, on Flickr Typical - on my long walk this morning, the sky was busy with the Coningsby boys out having a play. Only camera I had was my Ricoh GR III.

  4. Ours isn't quite that old, but after 20 years it's running as well as it did when brand new. Never had a moment's trouble with it. If/when? it does go pop, we'll just go and buy another - can't see that happening for a long time yet.
  5. Out on my morning walk today - roadside reds: Roadside reds by Boxertrixter, on Flickr Nikon D700/Nikkor 85-1.8D

  8. I use Van Damme 'Hifi' 6mm and it works just great. In fact I moved to it from some considerably more expensive stuff and to be honest am more than happy - and it freed up some cash as a bonus. Bought it from Mark Grant, nicely terminated and delivered in quick time. Just good, honest, copper cable which does the job.
  9. Oh he definitely is - like Harley, there's not one single bad bone in his body. Watching these two play is just hilarious, and if there's any mud/water you can put money on them both getting absolutely filthy.
  10. After many weeks of not meeting up, finally got the chance to get these 2 loons together this morning. Winston (the Cocker) and Harley are great pals, with only one day's difference in their ages. Seeing them running free around our local fields is just the perfect tonic: Two friends by Boxertrixter, on Flickr
