A post inspired by motorbikes!

On the back of our recent posts about Everest and tweed (!) and general 'hardiness', which we love, I started thinking about motorcycle racers. So I wanted to post about Barry Sheene, a motorcycle racing hero during the 70's. I just couldn't find images that did his classic '70's cool' justice. However, I began coming across images of George Harrison, who loved motor racing in general, cars etc, and I came across the images above which I loved and thought I would share (Barry Sheene is pictured with Harrison in the first). I didn't really achieve what I set out out do, but hey! And yeah that's George Harrison in the last image.

I will keep looking for the right images for a motorcycle posting. I'd love to find great images of some old classics like Triumph motorcycles, like the Bonneville.
