Hellow
« on: March 03, 2014, 09:43:40 AM »
Hellow everybody my name is Ken Rogers from Bishop Auckland, Co. Durham. I am a retired maintainance engineer and have been into model engineering for some 30 years or so since I packed in racing sidecars. I am mainly into steam traction  engines 4" scale and have made quite a few the latest one being a 4" Burrell. I tend to exibit at steam rallies and go to one nearly every week end for the start of May till the end of October.My other hobby is vintage motorcycles and I own a 1914 New Huddson and a 1926 Douglas EW350 both of which I use quite often.

Hello Ken,and welcome to Mad Modder.

Anyone mad enough to race sidecar outfits definitely qualifies as a Mad Modder in my book.
I live on the Isle of Man and am a keen road racing fan and lover of anything motorcycle related.

Have you ever competed in the TT races  or Southern 100 events at any time in your race career?....OZ.
