Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a rat rod style scooter bike

I spotted this across the road whilst wandering around town, and just had to have a picture. How cool is this rat rod style scooter? When I stop living in the sky and find somewhere with a garage (which won’t be for a while), I’d love to have something like this for the occasional cool […]

Naked Bike Ride 2015

I nearly didn’t bother taking pictures at this year’s Naked Bike Ride. The first and second times I did the ride, it was a bit of a surprise to have photos taken from inside the pack, rather than by giggling folks on their mobiles. So I was getting something a bit special. Yesterday, it seemed […]
