Photo Shoot for "The Week". What a media H.O.G.®...

 

What is your day job?

I'm part of the Loan Service in Oman, on loan from the Royal Air Force in the UK to the Sultan's Armed Forces. They sent me here for a 27 month tour nearly 12 years ago - do you think they've forgotten about me? Used to be a fighter pilot in the RAF, now looking after the Omani fighters and training aircraft from the Head Quarters of the Royal Air Force of Oman.

 

Where are you from?

Originally from Hastings in England, where William the Conqueror came ashore and we all spoke with a French accent for a while. Only loss in almost 1,000 years, not a bad effort!

 

How long have you been riding?

Little commuter bikes since I was 17. Borrowed a friend at work's Harley once and wanted one ever since.

 

What do you ride?

A 2000 Heritage Springer FLSTS

 

Where do you ride?

I'm not a fan of mornings, but still make most Friday rides, hangover permitting! Ride through the Summer as well, late in the afternoon, which is a much more gentlemanly time to get up! Try to get to most rallies but still not managed the 7-Emirates as it always clashes with work and going to play soldiers!

 

What makes you laugh?

Watching someone read that it's impossible to lick your elbow and then watching them having a go.... I know you just did that! Life of Brian (solidarity Reg).... Animal House (were we downhearted when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbour).... The Blues Brothers (I ran out of gas. I, I had a flat tire. I didn't have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn't come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake. A terrible flood. Locusts. IT WASN'T MY FAULT, I SWEAR TO GOD)...

 

Where is your favorite place in the world?

I love Australia, it's like America with nice people in it! Apologies to the Yanks reading this, but you've got to love the Oz sense of humour!

 

What one thing could you not live without?

My bike.....No, no, of course I meant my family. Wait a minute, she doesn't read this site..... That's right, it's my bike!
