Chris gets the prize...

Mr murray sent me this pic of his hei hei, I've asked him for some better ones.. apparently he has a few old konas (funnily enough) so maybe we'll get some of them too..

Have to say he's a top guy and seemed quite interested in the site..

The Lemming

Aah... Pee Wee! Must confess to not caring for the fella first time around... seemed to be the hanger on of the bunch. The most media savvy perhaps, but with the least talent on show at the time = highly irritating!

Now though, I have a soft spot for memories of the Lemming - kinda summed up that last boys of summer innocence period (before Tomkins sold his Harley to JMC etc.), and illustrating that 'you don't have to be the best to enjoy it to the max' thing... here's to you PW!

Mr K

PS. He always managed to wangle/or have great taste in bikes too...
