Mon, 05 Jan 2015 11:23:51 +0000http://www.philread.org/?p=25#comment-10189My name is Martin Jones, I was born in Luton 1952 & went to William Austin primary school. There I had a wonderful, very attractive, teacher helping us with English grammer & to read etc. I was totally in love with this vision of beauty & would volunteer all the time to read my book to her just to be near her & smell her perfume.
Then one day she came in all of a fluster, then we were told that her boyfriend, some poser on a motorbike apparently, had proposed to her !
Phil you stole my first love you blighter, but I think the better man won.

Could you e-mail me a few thoughts and memories on your helmets – can you give me a comparison between your pudding helmet and your full face helmet
What race did you wear your full face helmet and were you one of the first top riders to wear one – Where other riders reluctant in changing over to the full face helmet – – do you know who was the first rider to wear a full face helmet in the UK IOM TT or Grand Prixs
Appreciate your help gavan caldwell 07876545321

Although my career has been in Motorsport, my first love has always been Motorcycles after being fortunate to work with Hailwood
duting my time with Lacey. I would very much like a signed copy of Rebel Read, I have a Paypal account if you could email the details needed.
I live in Germany and would be paying with Euro.
Thanks for the memories , Ray

Tue, 11 Mar 2014 15:17:29 +0000http://www.philread.org/?p=25#comment-390Thirty five years ago I agreed to go behind a recently retired multiple world champion motorcyclist on a two-man racing Bobsleigh on his first drive down the world famous St. Moritz bob track. Known to be the “Drivers Track” not at all like the artificial tracks that rely on the speed and strength of the crew in the first thirty metres – PR drove me down safely – one little mistake at the exit of “Horseshoe” the 180 degree left hand corner halfway down nearly dumped us on our heads – but we managed to stay on our runners and finished the course in good time …… Not many first timers would have made it to the finish on such a fast bob without brakes – PR was a natural bobber. I hope you are keeping well.
