In order to honour MG Ace Face, and to carry the torch for the (hopefully short) time while he's gone (and I'm confident he'll return), let's revive Motown's thread, which is far too good to be forgotten...

Here's to you, Mr Motown!

    • One of my only regrets from my early mod days was never going for my test when it was relatively straight forward. I was slightly fortunate in that when i was 16 my provissional came back saying i was 17 (strange that) Due to that i had a great wee Vespa 90 as my first scooter. It was capable of reaching 50 mph and like Captain Scarlet it was virtually indestructible. I sold that to buy a 15 year old 150 super which needed more work than my budget could stretch to. Still enjoyed running about on it despite it not being taxed, insured, or mot'd but eventually sold it on to someone who could maybe do it some justice. Great days of fun and freedom with no responsibilities.
    • Yes the Test was straight forward, just riding around the block, the instructor could hardly claim I was not looking in my mirrors as I had about 6 each side!!

    • HaHa...Me too...Glad I did My Test when I did 87, On my Standard 125 Jet Serveta, drive round the Block, couple of Questions, Instructor standing wiv his Clipboard says U Passed.

    • We heard that the test instructors were not mad on Mods up here so people who took their test back then either did it on a motorbike, or made the scooter look totally standard and dressed like a scooter driving civilian. Not sure if it was correct or not but not many people liked us so it rings true.
