    Carl 'Foggy' Fogarty (born 1 July 1965 in Blackburn, Lancashire) is the most successful World Superbike racer of all time in terms of the number of championships and number of race wins. Now retired, he is renowned for his high corner speed riding style, combined with an aggressive competitiveness, which netted him 59 victories and four World Superbike Championships (1994, 1995, 1998 and 1999). His greatest success came with the factory Ducati team

    I'm pretty sure you could get it moved over to the other side with a bit of linkage here and there ... at the last track day there was a one-legged racer. He had a metal leg, but there was no flexibility in bike boots so he must've had something (gears or brake) moved up to the handlebars. I've also seen a one-armed racer. He straps the empty sleeve of his leathers across his front. Both are very brave!

    CC and Kate, I tried to learn to ride but hurt myself rather badly when I came off. no broken bones but still have the scars.

    I'd say that I used to love riding pillion with the Ex. It was like flying and I'd have no words to describe that feeling. At least I know with 100% gurantee that I could trust him (yes I know !!) on a motor-bike and that he was the safest bike-rider I have ever known.

    I'd still say that a horse is safer, at least it has a leg at each corner. :face-smile:

    Keeper of the hens

    I remember my first time on a motorbike, it was my dad's friend (who I think had the same name as him) and I was a tiny tiny tot. I remember we went all around the car park. It was when he worked as a photo-developer-person, when it was all done properly not like today...that was yonks ago :bigsmile:

    Kate, I don't like horses. I'll feed them and say hello, and I've even done horse riding in the past, but apart from Alfie (who used to bite me all the time but I loved him) I just don't like them. Having said that we walked past seven cute little foals today...nowhere near as cute as chicks though!

    I love horses and would have one if I had the space and the money. Riding lessons are very expensive these days but I must say that I will still have a go at riding if I get the chance.
    There was a horse I used to learn to ride on. His name was Samson and he was a lovely sorrell red/brown type of colour. He was huge, I could not see over his back. He had an irrational fear of chickens and the post man's red van. If he thought that he had caught sight of either a chicken out of the corner of his eye in the next county, or the post man....then it was enough for him to stop doing what he was doing and look for somewhere to hide. He was such a softy, if I whispered to him, he'd start to lean his head on my shoulder and slowly I'd feel my knees begin to give because he had gone and got himself into some happy trance and was almost leaning on me. :face-smile::face-smile:

    G'daughter's boy friend's mother has a riding school, so she is spending any spare days down there helping out and earning a few pennies. Today she was showing me some video on her phone of her first session of trotting.

    I remember doing the same at that age but it was just a place that had horses to ride and no tutorials.

    Hope you haven't got too much of a head this morning.

    I'm high-jacking this thread back to its original heading so the birthdays may be put all together.
    I say "may be" as I know we drift aound subjects on here and don't follow usual forum rules.

    That was such a great party Julie. Many, many thanks.

    We're all exhausted now and back in our cabins sleeping it off while our ship sails gently away into the sunset. Seems no one has the energy left to come on here yet.

    Now whose birthday is next? May as well use The Good Ship Hencam now we have it. Need to set the ship's carpenter building some coops so our feathered friends can come too and meet up with their beak-pals.

    Er, isn't it CC next? With this weather it'll be more of a challenge getting there than it was to Australia!

    Hullo briefly, :face-devil-grin:I had an absolutley fantastic, wonderful, amazing party folks. I did try to save some cake for you all but they did eated it all, the cheeky things.

    I have been exhausted all week though but worth it. Gradually getting my energy back. Trevor did quite a bit of filming which we will see over Easter. Hopefully some photos to share soon.

    Must go brush Koko tidy his whiskers.

    yep CC is next, so pump up the birthday ship, load up the hens and lets be on our way and oh yes yummy soup look forward to that CC.:face-devil-grin:
