Wonderful, wonderful Copenhagen...

... friendly old girl of a town.

I spent NYE watching TV. Because I am saving myself for parties like the one Lau and Kasper at
Motorious are having on 22 June from 12 noon in Copenhagen to celebrate their first birthday.

Unfortunately all the photos I have from my last party there are too, er, blurred... so here are James and Emil doing the easy rider thing the next morning to Krenkerup and The Castle Run.

 I love Denmark!

Let's look forward... and always back

Everyone reached 2013 now? Good.

Then happy new year to you all.

Who knows what the new year may bring? Well, in our case, we know it will continue to bring you the most interesting traditional custom motorcycles – and the odd car – on the planet.

This, for example, is Takeshi's '49 Hydra Glide, which you'll be able to read about in the new issue, out on February 1st.

We'll be changing a bit for the next one after 30 issues. But in the important ways, we won't be changing at all. So let's look forward to a new year... and continue to look back to the best of years past.

Have a wonderful Christmas

Yep, I've already started on the Monkey Stout and have already played Slade a couple of times today so whatever you're doing this holiday, do it safely and I hope you have a wonderful time.

Hopefully St Nick will leave something you really want under the tree.

The glory of old stuff

I've never been content living in the here-and-now. As far back as I can remember I dreamed of a different era... lived vicariously through the old objects left behind by others long gone. I had relatives who fuelled the fascination with the bygone, dusty and musty. Uncle Mac, who took my brother and I on memorable rides on the bench seat of his lowline Ford Consul (long after the last one had left Dagenham), slipping from port to starboard as we rumbled around north London's bends; and my grandad Poppa Fleming whose garage smelled of polish and leather and housed the mid-sixties Wolseley that would, at 18, become my post-test wheels.

And now, the best days are spent tinkering with old stuff. Today was one of those rare, crisp, sunny winter days that actually makes you glad to be in England. I played rockabilly to the kids as I made their their lunch (it makes them jump around in their seats; no modern music does.) Then I enjoyed a rare hour picking on my '63 Gretsch and actually worked out the breaks in Hank Harral's 'DJ Blues'... something I've been meaning to do for years.

After that I exposed the Dodge panel to the sunlight and took it on a brisk 20-miler, refreshing the fuel tank, warming the engine and rolling the wheels to avoid lay-up flat spots.

Choose old stuff. It will always make you happy.

Get a hat, get ahead

New Otto truckers have just arrived! The first lot sold out really fast so we added some new colours:


All with the GKM bulldog logo, mesh back, brass centre button and snap back. One size fits nearly all.

$25 including to shipping anywhere in the world. Buy yours HERE.

Winter hacking

Fortunately I don't need to ride for work all year round any more, but when I did, this '94 Hinckley Triumph Trident provided (almost) trouble-free winter thrashing for a number of years in London.

I loved it. But it must rank as one of the ugliest bikes I've ever owned.

Rewind: 2006

When Buzz and I first put my Pan together it looked like this for a couple of months before the back end lost some weight and width.

After many years doing this blog I am repeating myself ... sorry ... but I was really influenced by the early incarnation of Eric Webb's bike.

I still like this look.

Stock rock

It's winter, so thoughts inevitably turn to how to modify the Panhead for when the weather improves again.

This is how it looked when I bought it in 2009... and I must admit I sometimes weigh up returning it to stock.

We'll see.

Cock cakes and Christmas capers

My head still hurts. WWNWW.
