    Nothing was more further from the truth.I saw him riding wonderfully powerful but controllable motor cycles. Truly interesting watching

    A gifted engineer by any standard, he is able to build very presentable machines and remain quite modest about his achievement.

    I especially like the line from the Millyard Flyer episode where he says something along the lines of "I couldn't get the carburettors to work properly so I made my own" - as you do...
