Based on what's written in the margin of the photo, I'm guessing Wales.

Could that be The Isle of Man in the distance?

Yep, I just forwarded a link to that post to a Welsh friend.

It's near Dublin.

I think it's time to boycott google maps.

They show nothing on the Isle of Man.

At least they have a satellite picture of it.

No, Its not sunny SoCal. Its dreary old Dublin or just outside it. Thats Dublin bay in the background and the land in the distance is the northside of Dublin. I broke the motor racing it but the Norton is still racing. It goes to El Mirage and Bonnevile now.

We recently lost a good man and one of the finest machinists to ever cut a chip.
Rest in peace Carl.

Some of his work.

I love the Pistols, especially Johnny Rotten. I'm not a real fan of their music, the Clash was better, but their attitude and political stance couldn't be beat!
