In the 50`s, fairings covered the front wheel & were called `dustbins`.

I think that's a winner, Dave. I particularly like the intense look in the rider's eyes - great speed blur also!

Cracking photo, nice old bike, looks like he's scraped the bottom of the fairing.

Yes, I like the photo, Dave. What speed was he doing at the time you took it, approx.?

Ernest - I believe the term is... "A fair owd lick"

It can`t be that fast, Dave! He`s going round a bend at an angle.

Comment by: Dave on 14th November 2008 at 21:53

He's just tipping into a long bend after coming down a downhill straight.

if it's a Ducati, he's lucky it's still going!!!
