Emma Peel

The Original Avenger

– Dame Diana Rigg (1938-2020) played the original action girl opposite Patrick MacNee’s John Steed in the early sixties British TV show. Other notable characters include Countess Teresa di Vicenzo who became 007 James Bond’s wife; and Olenna Tyrell in Game of Thrones. But for everyone she’ll always be the catsuited Emma Peel.

Labor Day Ride

100 miler

– a splendid spin out on the Tiger today under perfect conditions. Being a Holiday the roads were fairly clear and an early autumnal feel to the air. Color just about to turn with the dusty scent of vegetation heading into dormancy wafting across the highways.

Boots

Blunnies

– I finally realized my seven year old Tasmanian boots were in need of replacement; so I plumped for the exact same Blundstone. Once broken-in they are like slippers in comfort.

Don’t forget your flask…

Simpler Times:

A delightful photograph from past days with a happy couple enjoying a cuppa along some quiet country road. The Triumph ‘Twenty One’ carried them there in competent fashion and a post war bucolic England let’s them relax trouble-free.

Apple Green

Sixties Vibes

Tiptoes and knee high socks. Narrow bars turning a pair of lengthened forks backed up with a cushy swept back saddle. Pea colored coffin tank matches the trim jacket. Well, how else are you going to get to your private jet from the executive terminal?b

Ride on boyo!

Smiling Hound

– Welsh singer actor Lee Evans promoting a thirties vibe in sheepskin lined belted leather coat, tall engineer boots, and over the shoulder napsack. The Vincent Comet is a suitable motorcycle prop for the magazine shoot. The vintage backdrop adds a perfect foil.

Best boot forward on this long legged cycle as it hoofs along a green verged highway under blue skies. Enjoy your weekend folks!

LP cover

Leather Rockers

Hard as nails. These five lasses are stern looking and have gallons of attitude. A couple of nice sixties Bonneville offer an appropriate foil to the image.

Pussy Galore’s Flying Circus

Cathy Gale

Sadly one of the original action women of the silver screen died today. Honor Blackman who, in my opinion, is the definitive Bond girl. She played opposite Sean Connery in Goldfinger with perfect grace and grit. She started a life on two wheels as a dispatch rider during WW2 in London. She was 94.
