Mostly I sit in my fireside chair, with my slippers on and a nice rug over my legs, gently nodding off between cups of tea and regaling the kids with stories about the 'good old days'.

It is rude to gloat, but my phone does only seem to work to the UK whilst I'm in the pool. Makes me very popular. Not. Apart from the time I dropped it, that was less funny.

So you're saying you banged bars with Leslie Graham, Umberto Masetti, John Surtees and Geoff Duke back in the day, and was already retired when Phil Read and Mike Hailwood showed up?

Not quite! Just too old to be fast, and too young to die. I will make the CMRA Old Man class though.
