That stuff about God Allah and Budha set me thinking:
Here is what I think a few famous people might ride:
Yoda from Star Wars: Honda Monkey Bike, but the power of “The Force” would mean it was quicker than a Fireblade…
Darth Vader: Has to be a Yamaha V-Max!!
Captain Kirk: Tough one, maybe a Yamaha XJ650 Turbo?
Lister from Red Dwarf: Ratty Kawasaki Z650 with a seriously lound Alpha 4 into 1. No MOT or tax.
Rimmer (also from Red Dwarf): Tomos A3K – remember in the mid 1980’s when you could buy these from Woolworths!!
Osama Bin Laden: Suzuki DRZ400, good off road and on. His must be fitted with a cloaking device as nobody can find him! Wonder if he has got Saddam on the back?
Fiedel Castro (Cuban leader) : See him on a Moto Guzzi leMans I for some reason.
Few people I am struggling with, what do you lot reckon this lot might ride:
Noddy Holder from 70’s rock band Slade
Blake from Blake’s 7
Buck Rogers (Altough I think the 25th Century one would go for a Suzuki RF900).
Mother Teresa of Calcultta
Gadaffi of Libya.
I do like to address important issues of the day!
I am looking forward to some good answers here.
If this lot were all bikers imagine them turning up for a club meeting or a Rally! Surreal or what?July 12, 2003 at 10:54 am #16684
