Please tell us a bit about yourself... I’m 45 this year and currently own 3 motorcycles, which I ride all the time, any time, any place, any where - I should’ve been called Martini hahaha. I’ve always been a bit of a speed freak adventuress. A naturally brave Guernsey gal, so it wasn’t long before I was ripping up my L plates with a full motorcycle license in hand, on my way home riding a borrowed test bike (Suzuki GS550) to my much loved Kawasaki LTD 450 mat black rat bike
Colin Robin and Jon Skillet met in 1973 and started their sprint experiences on an old Triumph 650 which Jon had supercharged. However, Jon saw a twin-engine BSA sprint bike in a magazine and suggested to Colin that they could come up with something similar. So they acquired some bits and pieces of other bikes and began the build.

I posted an invite on our Rocket X Owners Facebook page and Ian (Rocket X #281), who lives near Eastbourne, quickly responded to say he was up for it. Chris (#297) joined the party and a convenient location, date and time was agreed. Soon after we heard that Roy (#147) and Jonathan (#001) would also be headin
Recognised by many as the best in the world the Royal Signals Motorcycle Display Team has been performing for over 80 years. We had the pleasure to watch their performance at Abbey Hill Steam Rally 2017 and unfortunately it's their last year of existence.

[Dennis Le Prevost on Rocket X, Paul Thomson photography] I have a keen interest in creative photography as well as my love of all things related to motorbikes. Although I would personally describe myself as a bit of a novice when it comes to using the more sophisticated camera settings. I started to investigate light-painting techniques after watching a T.V. programme in which a photographer was demonstrating freehand painting of objects with lights. So I decided to get in c
