What an awesome thread - thank you for sharing. It's stories and pictures such as these that remind me of why I wanted to ride in the first place. They remind me of why I don't use a GPS or an I-whatever, and that the sound of the wind is better than the sound of any kind of a download. I guess for many, riding is about moving the soul around the planet. Thanks for the reminder.

Sir T.E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia) was riding a Brough Superior. Famous for his prowesses in (then) British Palestine for uniting Arabs to fight against Turks.

Thanks for your pictures. I really the pictures that show us when we were young and healthy. I find it amazing you kept that old bike all those years, but I can definitely understand it.

Good Luck

Cry Missing pictures?

What?

I just went to show my father the old pictures and I see that many (most?) are now missing.
Renamed? Moved? Lost?
I hope they can be recovered as they are too good to lose!
My father rode a 1948 hard tail Matchless 500 that was bored and stroked to 600cc.

It was a "scrambler"

?? I don't get it. Why is that funny? Many bikes that are now called MX bikes, Enduros, & even Dual Sports were once called 'Scramblers'. Some races were 'Scrambles'. The bikes I wanted & rode were scramblers.
Manufactures even named some of them 'Scramblers'.
Here's a couple. 1960s though.

The only one I can think of offhand that names a bike a 'Scrambler' now days is Triumph.
It resembles a 1960s Scrambler too. Heavier though.

Cool2 Scrambler

It is funny because back then you rode whatever bike you had as a "scrambler" meaning off road, even if it had no rear suspension.

Actually, before motocross became popular there were lots of scrambles races.
I think the manufacturers started calling their bikes scramblers since that was how some riders rode them.

Sort of like riding enduroes as a competition came long before any manufacturer started calling their bikes "enduroes".

Today bikes have fantastic suspension and excellent handling and some of the old timers like my father (82) can't even imagine how they did all the dirt riding they did back then.

BTW, he called his Matchless a scrambler and he laughs at it too.
