Big Ed Blogs

Ello Ello Ello

Big Ed here again hoping you are all well and good.

Now, this week’s blog is a call out for some help really. My poor old Great Aunt Edna unfortunately passed away this week at the ripe old age of 97. She was on an extreme sports holiday in South American, and had an unfortunate and tragic accident whilst kayaking in the Andes. I’ve put a picture of her up this week in memory of her. She could often be found on her bright yellow 749 spanking it around Oulton Park and going too fast into Knickerbrooke. Anyway, being the eccentric that she was, she has left me some money in her will - the only condition being that I have to spend it on motorcycles.

Now I don’t mind this too much - but my only problem is that deciding what to get is proving harder than winning a BSB race this year without sabotaging Leon Camiers bike. She has told me I can get 3 bikes, and that money’s no issue. Now I’ve given it a bit of thought, and I don’t really want three sports bikes - so what do I get?

So help me bloggers - where do I start when there are so many good bikes out there at the moment. What would you get? Which of the litre sports bikes is king? Can I get reliability if I go Italian? Should I get something iconic from history books? I really need your suggestions posted in the comments below, and I’ll keep you updated on what I finally decide to get.

Just quickly before I go, I’ve noticed in the last year that whenever I’m out and about at an event, there are more photos on be being taken of me than Kerry Katona falling over in a KFC. However, I never get to see any of these, which is rubbish. If you have any pics of your old mate Big Ed, I would be honoured if you could send them to me at I'll put some of the best ones here on Edspace.

I’ll be back next week. I’m off to Croft now for another round of the MCE Insurance British Superbikes. Look out for me if you’re there!
