This is a picture that hangs on the wall of the British Legion in Wigan. This was the host venue for last weekends Sideburn Magazine launch party.
Davida helmets kindly brought along a selection of images from the MOTO-PHOTO exhibition and diplayed them on the British Legions walls.
In order to do this, the existing picures hung on the wall had to be removed. It felt like the right thing to do was to leave this picture up and include it in the gallery. the new caption reads:
"Warrington-on-Sea Home Guard" Dad's Army.
Private Sponge aka Colin Bean (far right standing) appeared in every episode of the popular tv series "Dad's Army" between 1968 and 1977. A local actor and author from Wigan, Colin was a member at this club for many years and a patron of many local arts groups. Colin sadly passed away last year.

First 2 shots are me, then Baz, then me again at Stiffneck's and then finally Bull-Craigos over the channel in Warrington.
We just made a pact to both skate more during 2010....it's hard to motivate yourself to go skating on your own...so having someone to hook up with will be a real bonus....BRING ON THE MAGIC ROLLING BOARD!!

Super successful testing session today over at the new SKOOTER FARM practice track, at an undisclosed location.
The top surface (6mm down Red Shale) we brought in is gonna be worth every penny......money well spent!
The track surface is ultra smooth and it isn't cutting through to the sub-base, as feared, at all!
It rides like a small version of Kings Lynn on a good day when its just been lightly watered and groomed......great fun!
Riding today was Pete Wilkinson, Captain Highside and myself. Also in attendance was CCM team rider Richard May, who abstained from riding...the big Puff!
Despite the small scale of the track....speeds were suprisingly quick but that might change as the shale dries out and takes on a more 'skiddy' characteristic.
This track is for use with small capacity, heavily silenced bikes only and is for SKOOTER FARM and SIDEBURN teamsters and associates or on a strictly invitation only basis. Sorry but we don't want to blow our cover before we even start..we have put too much time and money into this project!
If you are coming to the SIDEBURN MAGAZINE LAUNCH PARTY on Friday 26th March and wish to ride or attend the official track opening session/photo-shoot on the Saturday afternoon, then please get in touch with Sideburn first.
