I liked the Crow Road, but the wasp factory is a favourite, totally bonkers though. Not so keen on the Sci-Fi stuff though. Anyhoo--back to the bike - looks awesome! Cracking piece of kit that - Nice one! :D

The one I don't like is Canal Dreams - his worst IMHO

Great bike.

Lots of bikes in Ian Banks books incidentally - GT185 in the Crow Road, BSA, another GT185 and a mention of Le Mans in the Wasp factory.

Hahahahahaha !
I like the way you're trying to keep the thread vaguely on topic !
You must've noticed what happens to folk who don't behave !

Just in case anyone is wondering WTF is going on here, we've digressed slightly into the world of Iain Banks books, of which his most (in)famous was also his debut novel ;
The Wasp Factory

Jez describes it as 'Totally Bonkers' I'd go a bit stronger.
It starts off a bit Strange, then gets a bit Freaky, then it gets Very Nasty, followed by Downright Sick and ends up as Freaky, Nasty, Sick and Revolting !
All in all - An everyday story of Scottish Folk !

Anyroadup - Nice Bike - Any New Developments ?

Tut Tut Boys,

shouldn't you be reading wholesome motorcycle related literature? such as this exemplary work of fiction by Mr. Periam?

You like the way I did that?

Can't remember what BSA it is in The Wasp Factory. Is it a Gold Star or an A65? I read someone else's copy when I stayed with friends who were living in a squat in Camden in the 80s - reading the book was the only rule for being allowed to crash for a few days. I was in London for a course and read the book in a couple of days. hevn't read it since though I've got quite a few of the others he wrote, both sci fi as Ian M Banks and fiction as Ian Banks.
