World's greatest motorcycle.. My Dads' bike...

My Dad passed away this week. For over 12 months he had been fighting cancer. He went in his sleep on Wednesday morning.

He was not a mad keen rider like me. Yet it was him who said I should get a bike when I first needed transport.

He had previously sent me a photo of his bike. I had known for years that he had owned a little Trumpy. I had always thought it was a Tiger Cub. 2 weeks ago he told me it had a 150cc engine. So its a Terrier not a Cub. He took this photo of his bike in January 1955.

Today on ebay my sister found a Terrier for sale.  So in memory of our Dad we have bought this bike. I shall get it going and my sister can own it and ride it.
