Pictures of Dickie





I did some scans a while ago now and never got round to posting them all. Here is a selction of pictures of my dad riding bikes over the years.
There is plenty to digest in these so take your time with them. The top one is his Triumph Grass bike (late 70s), next is a DR400 taken at either one of the Welsh 2 day enduros or a the 6 days in 1982.
The next is his first trial on a bantam (date unkonow) and the last two are at the Golden Helmet in Pardubice when you still needed a sporting visa to drive your mk 2 Transit to Czecho (ealry 80s).
Anyway the next time you are talking to Dickie why not mention one of these pictures and maybe if your lucky you will get a good story out of him.
Incedentally check out the crowd in the Golden Helmet pictures it looks awesome eh!!
