Birth Year: 1960
Family: Full set including wife of 30 yrs, 2 grown men I’m trying get rid of and the dog (all mad!)
Occupation: Retired to the garage
Previous jobs: National Coal Board (closed), TML (closed), Pfizers (part-closed ) – sensing a theme here! – Brakes Food Service (redundancy). Mostly stuck behind a desk managing Budgets, Buildings, H&S, Assets….mainly at Pfizers.
Favourite team: Derby County (see mad)
Favourite player: Archie Gemmill, but Barry Sheene/Ron Halsam were my real heros.
Hobbies: Passion for motorcycles – restoring and riding them – mainly Italian and Japanese from the 70’s/80’s. Learnt to rebuild wheels, nickel plating and can “magically” fix most things. In between the bikes I walk the dog, DIY, and garden (the boring stuff) – and still play computer games (I’m 24 really – honest!)
Ambitions: According to my sons, it’s to own more bikes than the Haynes motor museum. To keep healthy, I suppose, and go through my “ to do list” (wife included in most of them!).
Claim to fame: Does the loudest sneeze in the county/country count ? You’ve been warned!
Other thoughts: Bikes, more bikes….
