My Dad’s motorbike habit first started when he was at School. He even formed the Motorbike Club there, much to the disappointment of his teachers. Word spread about this club and one day a photographer turned up and took some photos of him jumping the motorcycle in his school uniform.

The pictures were published in a newspaper and Dad nearly got expelled for this. Eton wasn’t that forward thinking at the time and motorcycles were considered a menace, but he managed to talk his way out of the problem in the end.

Here is the offending picture, it’s slightly blurry but I think that is because it so old.

Note the formal motorcross jacket

I definitely think the formal jacket with tails needs to make a return to biker fashion, Dinnerwear by Dianese anyone? Also Sidi should start making some armoured racing brogues.
