Cool? (You be the judge)

Cool? (You be the judge)

How cool is this photograph?

It is a picture of Janet’s father, Archie, on one of the many motorcycles he owned and was taken in Calcutta, India, where he lived during his youthful years.

No leathers, goggles, or helmets as we know them today.

Back then it was your suit and tie and a pith helmet.

And crikey, what a dashing figure he cut on that fantastic motorcycle.


You be the judge….

    That’s cool, no doubt. That’s a man that knew how to wear a Pith helmet!

    It reminds me of a photo I have of my grandfather sat on his motorbike with my uncle Shaun sat on the handlebars in front of him. I never met him, but I don’t know how he found time to ride a motorbike with six kids!

    Without a doubt cool. Of course, the picker in me can’t help think about that open chain and that pant leg!

    The ‘pith’ Helmet really does set it off!
    Think the Police here (US) would let me get by wearing one?

    Cool as hell, my dad wore a Pith helmet when he rode the grass cutting tracker : )
