    Its not just the Hill , I remember when Ashington had Mains, H & H, Peter Littles Yamaha ? and Harry Woods, Morpeth had both H & H and Harry Woods showrooms , Berwick had Darling and Swinney Honda ,Fewsters in Alnwick was a Honda dealer, Sunderland had Kawasaki World at the top of High Street West (interesting one in an old department store with a very strange collection of stuff in the basement ), a Suzuki/ Moto Morini dealer at the top end of of Holmeside and an old bike dealer in run down semi derelict premises on Silksworth Row (where they found still crated 70's bikes in the late 80's)

    Plenty more I have no doubt have forgotten about.................... now feel very old
    CHRIST ! , I am only 49 , and that trip down memory lane makes me feel ancient !

    The bike shop in North Shields, the bottom end so to speak along from the "men's outfitters" shop was where I bought my BMW R75/6 back in 1978. Owned it for about 7 years put a lot of miles on her and rebuilt the gearbox at one point etc, still have the Clymer manual.
    TAM or something similar I think it was called.

    Remember standing outside gazing at the MV Augusta they had in the window, must have been 77/78. Then off down the Haven for the nightly ‘biker’ meet. All AP50’s, FS1E’s & the odd RD250 & GT250 for those who’d turned 17. Happy days.
