I rode a Puch Maxi moped from Warrington to London and back in a day (actually 26 hours).
My bottom has never forgiven me.
well my first motorised transport ( heh I think it can be called that ) was a Tomos moped ( bought from Woolworths in Croydon ) I rode from Lowestoft to London & back in Winter time , long time a go - I used to use my bike and stopped off at Colchester YHA in the day but now could do it all in one go
There was a story about a Naval Nursing Sister in Plymouth
One of the more Senior Sisters noted she had plain black shoes, but they were NOT uniform, junior Sister explained that she had packed in a hurry and they were at home
Senior told the Junior Sister to "Go Home and get the proper shoes". Junior Sister tried to argue, but was told it was "an ORDER"
So Junior Sister went back to her room, changed into Leathers and mounted her Bonneville, and proceeded home to...... Aberdeen
Returned 3 days later and when asked where she had been, explained that despite truing to explain she had been ordered to return to Aberdeen and collect her shoes!
