Pete asked my father to passenger for him in the 60's on the Isle of Man It would of been 1968 or 1969. My mum wasn't happy about the idea so my dad declined. My dad is no longer with us but I remember the story. - Andy Dyer Report this

He was my father. I still own motorcycles so it must be in the blood. We all miss him and my mum very much. - Peter Tyack Report this
