Mike's Page

My bike.

I'm Mike Ralph and live near Wolverhampton. Last week I traded in my Transalp for a 'P' reg Africa Twin. The person I have to blame for this is biking buddy John Gartside, who has been taking the piss for months about me getting rid of the tranny and getting a 'man's bike'. I am really looking forward to doing some touring and maybe doing some even more expensive improvements to the AT than John has to his! Another thing that John teases me about is my riding jacket, it's a black Hein Gericke one and it's got loads of writing on the back. John says it is something to read on a long boring journey if I'm going too slow.
