About me …




This Blog started around November 2013, initially as a way to keep in touch with family, friends and former colleagues and it’s sort of gone on since then.

I worked for a long time as a Civil Servant and spent my last 15 years or so in work as a Project Manager and then Programme Manager and retired from paid employment at the end of December 2013 – not because I didn’t enjoy my job ( I thoroughly enjoyed it) but it was just time for my wife and I to do other things.

If you’re wondering why this Blog is called 55 and out, it’s quite simple really and that’s the age at which I quit paid employment. For the first eight months or so of its life this Blog was called T800, and that was simply because it’s just a number I like and the front end of the registration numbers I have had on a couple of my bikes.

The content of the Blog is mainly around, bikes and family as well as featuring various  product reviews related to the bikes I ride and the gear and kit I use.

I’ve also written a couple of books and you can check them out at these two links What if you dont break down and Superbike Across Europe

And because nobody should ever take themselves too seriously I have a separate category ‘whispering and hats’ … check it out

  1. Nice blogsite Tony, glad some people like to share good things!
    PS, lm Mick from Bolton then migrated South to Chester then retired a year younger than you did n emigrated to America & get about 200 biking days a year in sunshine ( you remember that doncha?)
    The rest of the year is either too wet or too hot or lm away on my travels Worldwide ( sorry to say not biking holidays)…. I’m writing this on a rest day in my rental apartment in Quito, Ecuador.

    • Thanks for visiting and commenting Mick … 200 biking day a year! Good for you, as you can imagine I dint get quite that many
