british historic racing, darley moor

keeping it real on the bmw front, good to catch up with two blokes who have been so supportive and given me loads of help in the last couple of year's, ben kingham #55 and ron maul, [yep, he's darth's brother, true, would i lie to you?], #66, [just dawned on me, perhaps if i change my race number to 33, 44, 77, 88, 99, 11, 22 etc, etc, i might have more luck? just saying], ben  had four great win's over the weekend on the k, this bike is a work of art, the attention to detail is staggering, to turn a lardy-arse heavy old-man tourer into a race winning machine speaks volumes, talk to ben and he's totally driven and inspiring, check out the link to the bsk speedworks site, [he's building replica racer's and streetbikes too] and then there's ron, promised a 'k' to race in the b.e.a.r.s series, he sold the famous 'helga' boxer twin for a pittance and then the sponsership deal went to rat-shit leaving him without a bike, he's cobbled together an almost stock bike to race in the pre-72's classs and watching him throw the big boxer around and get a couple of fourth place's against pukka race machinery was awe inspiring, ben, ron, we are not worthy........
