Hi Sue,

I replied to you once when you were asking if anyone Knew where Smilyan was, you are close to Dizzie Di, our house is in Kutela about 30 minutes drive away just above Monchilovtsi.

I used to visit Scarborough most weekends on my motorbike back in the 70's we used to meet up at a pub called the Silver Grid then camp out around Olivers Mount.

Now though my wife has confined me to four wheels cut off in my prime a mere fat bald (55), its good to know that there will be a few tykes in BG to keep up the dialect.

Happy New Year

Hi to all you rockers at QuestBulgaria,

My bike was a BSA Starfire it was only 250cc and when I bought it in 1969 straight out of Watson & Cairns shop on Lower Briggate in Leeds, the salesman came outside gave me a set of L plates and 5 minutes tuition then I was off.

In those days you could have a 250 without having to take a test, the guy talked me into buying a crash helmet he said we don't want you killing yourself before you'v paid for it lad.

I remember driving the first five miles with my feet almost touching the floor like stabilisers then confidence took over and common sense went out of the window.

When we move over to BG i may rekindle my youth however i haven't mentioned it to the wife yet, i have seen some lovely old Russian bikes which i could cruise around on.

Happy New Year.
