A ghostly scene. What ghoul would ride this bike perchance??

As no doubt you know Mick, this section of the M6 is notorious for fog and there have been several accidents because of it.
I watched the construction of this viaduct.
Like the bike - it`s not a man`s or a ladies but in-between !!
Do you know the title of the pan pipe music on your `Laurels`video?

I only came upon wiganworld in 2010 and am now trawling my way through 4 years of photos. What a brilliant website this is.

Claude, put `ladies bikes`on Google and look at the Halford`s website. Then look at the `Pendleton` which to me is a ladies bike.

It`s that bike again !!

Comment by: Ernest Pyke on 14th June 2012 at 09:24

As kids we used to balance between the motorway pillars to see which pillar we could get to. My mate winne sat on the top of one of those pillars and smoked a fag. About two of us got to the first pillar winnie got to the second. I can still see him today sitting there as cool as you like
