I noticed the motorcycle test examiner that gave me my pass certificate way back in the early 70s pass away on Christmas day age 102yrs, after my test he stood and had a good old blether about motorcycling,. he was an avid cyclist and kept cycling into his nineties:thumbup: he was an absolute gentleman, totally the opposite from the miserable sour puss that passed me for the car test the week after .

Maybe his happier approach to life was the reason he lived to such an age. I hope so.

My bike test examiner 1975 (being on foot in those days) got a wet arse going over a low moss covered wall to see whether I was on the correct side of the road for a right hand turn on leaving a one way street. He wasn't chuffed, but he still passed me in spite of me asking him whether he'd had an accident. :lol: He was a bike fanatic too :thumbup:

Those guys used to travel all over, so it could have been the same guy as I did my test in Forfar.
