Seventh | in the late eighties we were up to regeneration number eight for The Doctor. Sylvester McCoy was the Time Lord and his sidekick Mel by the 70’s child star Bonnie Langford. When the Tardis is parked up they can tear around aboard a beautiful Vincent combination.

Doctor Who – The Doctor

The Doctor | Jodie Whittaker returns as the Time Lord from Gallifrey in the latest season of chronological shenanigans. The trailer sees her racing through a vineyard on a large bike. A far cry from the temperamental Tardis.

“A straight line may be the shortest distance between two points, but it is by no means the most interesting.” – The Third Doctor (Jon Pertwee) The Time Warrior (1973)

Racing Bike

The Future Was Here | The imaginative illustrations of Syd Mead spoke of a streamlined and slick world of cool architecture and knife-sharp cars. This Honda 3000 has hints of Kaneda’s bike from ’89 Manga animation Akira. Mead developed the feel of dystopian Blade Runner and the computer integration of Tron. Syd passed away yesterday at the age of 86.

Mambo Rock

Forty Five RPM | classic instrumental hit from 1958 with very memorable lyrics: “Tequila” x3. Awesome cover photo of the band in matching red suits over white tees on Triumph motorcycles.

Coop Soop

Hot Rodder July 1966 | a ‘toon clipping from a vintage magazine unearthed in Minnesota. If you try and drop a Chevy small block V-8 into a Mini Cooper you’d better think about the pilots cockpit.

Track Star

Speed Thrills | More of former cyclist Victoria Pendleton as she promotes vintage two wheeled racing. This old Triumph is fettled for high velocity with those narrow vertical bars.

Curves Ahead

Continuing Fine Weather | with another atypically warm day in late December I was able to visit some job sites on the Tiger. I could zoom up and down Forest Way Drive along the Skokie Lagoons.

Low Sun

Solstice Shadows | unseasonably warm temperatures allowed for a ride today. Low fifties and sunny skies as well as quiet roads made for a nice outing. With the handgrip warmers and an electric vest I was toasty. Coffee stop in Lake Forest IL.

The Force is with you

Skywalker | The saga is complete. I finally saw Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker. A good sci-fi tale with plenty of action and Star Wars fun. The desert chase with stormtroopers haring over the sand on tracked Treadspeeders was thrilling. The pillion trooper also sports a jet pack.

Halcyon Days

Oceanic Horizon | as we bottom out at the Winter Solstice we can at least dream days with an azure ocean to your side as you zoom along a coastal highway.
