I don't know, probably not as he seemed quite old at the time but then I was only young so he would do lol

When you're that young, and brought up strict, it's difficult to make a complaint about an adult. I was brought up to respect my elders. I just thought he was creepy and made sure I was never on my own when he was around

You're right Ninja I'm sure we had proper summers then, 4 seasons per year instead of 4 seasons in one day I remember a lot of gardens had loads of flowers in them, and the scent, as you walked by, was lovely; these days most gardens are drives and flowers don't seem to smell as strong anymore

Know what you mean about being out all the time. I'd go out on my bike for hours on end with my mates and go and buy 1/2 penny sweets and see who could blow the biggest Bubble Yum bubble without it sticking to your face...

I think if a child has a gut instict its usually right. Looking back to the 70s yes we did respect our elders but there was an eliment of fear;

Yup, I feared our dad, he only had to point his finger and say 'Nar then' (Now then in a Yorkshire accent lol ) and I was nearly in tears. he had a deep voice too which made you sit up and take notice, and he was only 5'4"

I started this post almost 12 years ago, a lot more folk have joined BM since then, so I thought others may like to reminisce about their time in the 70s

I loved the 70's, started riding dirt bikes in 1976 when I was 8 years old, an Italjet SX50 with 4 gears :D

Barry Sheene was my hero back then. When he won one of his World Championships his bike was doing a tour of the UK, and was on a plinth at various Texaco garages up and down the country due to Texaco being one of the sponsors. There was a Texaco garage right by my school and I was just stood in front of it, staring at it in awe. My hero's bike, about 3 feet away from me. I can't remember if I was stood there dribbling a bit of saliva, or whether I was stood there with a boner, but at the time it was the coolest thing I'd ever seen. I was around 9 years old. I'll never forget that :-)

Barry Sheene was my pin up on my bedroom wall. Memories of my dad taking me to watch him at Oulton and Mallory.
Ok I'll put my hands up to having all the tartan gear for the bay city rollers
And starting big school in 76 and proper summers
