Hack to the fu­ture

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Letters -

Great magazine guys – re­ally love it, but read­ing last month’s I was all of a sud­den struck by a sense of be­ing here be­fore. As an avid Per­for­mance Bikes reader from the late ’80s, through the ’90s and be­yond I was struck by all the fa­mil­iar faces. Mark Gra­ham is for­ever stuck in my mind be­ing to­tally drunk swear­ing into a mi­cro­phone at a PB frenzy, Ru­pert Paul on the front cover hunched be­hind the screen of the first RGV250, and Si­mon Har­g­reaves burn­ing out his X7 rat-racer grin­ning like id­iot.

So not only do you have all the great bikes from my youth you also have all the jour­nal­ists to go with them! Now all you’re miss­ing is the spotty Arai of Mark Forsyth and of course Trevor “too fat” Franklin to com­plete the retro pic­ture! Glad to see the old hacks are still go­ing strong!

Yes, we’ve nearly got the full set with Alan too, and now Damian as art ed­i­tor. It’s a night­mare – JM
