BritBike ForumDear Editor

This last month we were forced to change server and our old BritBike forum crashed. Rapidly we installed a new modern forum but not without hazzle. Finally 213000 posts and 6800 members was succesfully imported. Now we work on making the new forum better so try it and send feedback thru the tutorial board.
 
As always send BritBike related tips and info to me.
Ride safe

Velolespeedcop!
 
Amazingly, there are blokes around who actually love the Velocette LE. Spider actually knows one - how about that!
These small, quiet, water-cooled, horizontal twins with everything enclosed in an aluminium casing like a scooter were once a common sight on England's roads. This was because police constables on the beat were issued with them so that they could whiz round their patch.
Why were they called Noddy Bikes? Well, the story goes that the police inspectors used to prowl around making sure their coppers were not nipping into the boozer instead of feeling the collar of the local villains and whenever a constable rode past an inspector he had to salute him. This required the constable to raise his right hand to his brow in smart military style with the result that the throttle shot back to zero, the bike rapidly decelerated and the copper frequently fell off. Thus a new rule was introduced requiring the rider to only nod when he passed an inspector - hence Noddy Bike!

Spider's cartoon highlights the fact that the Velocette LE is not renowned for its performance, being rather a gentle creature.
