TrevorsThe chronicles of village folk with a penchant for underpowered transportation…

  • The Temeside Loop - Rumour had it that the Temeside had reopened. In fact, more than rumour as T1 had felt it his bounden duty to attend the first evening’s opening of the doors and so could provide a first-hand report. The Temeside has a special place in the heart of every Trevor and Trevorette. It was our very …
  • Vote of Censure (Penned in April) - Spring is well and truly here. The long, dark days of inclement weather and feint heart induced cancellations are past and the Trevors can look forward to another fine summer of adventure. And the Spring so far has been so encouraging. Bright, warm days with the most wonderful show of early blossom. The Blackthorn has …
  • The Essence of Trevoring - The regular reader (an almost extinct breed) may recall a minor headlamp problem. The seeming frequency of technical issues, at least in these articles and, you may not be surprised to learn, they barely scratch the surface, triggered a reflection on what it is about Trevoring that is so appealing (well, to a Trevor anyway). …
  • Trevor in the Dark - You may remember that after an off roading episode across Oldwood Common, T3 successfully completed his annual MOT. A few weeks later, a further trip to The Fountain at Tenbury was attempted, this time by a completely new and longer route via Leysters and a loop further southwards to Bockleton and then back to Oldwood …
  • Trevors in the Rough - Trevors are noted for their aversion to inclement weather. The winter months, therefore, represent a low period in the Trevor calendar with rare outings often restricted to a quick dash (well, tootle really) to the Temeside. Both rider and machine look forward eagerly to the arrival of spring and the prospect of longer and more …
  • Mixed Transport: Water, Water Everywhere - You may remember that I had been exploring the ruins of Llanthony Priory in the Vale of Ewyas in the company of a black cat. On returning to my new car (second hand) I set the compass for a hopefully northerly direction and I was off once more towards the Gospel Pass and the caffeinated …
  • From Across the Pond, or was it Up North? - Whatever happened to those bright, crisp autumn days? We have been blessed with the most beautiful autumn colours this year; but then November happened. Leaden skies, fog, rain in annoying quantities – it can’t even do it properly, it just makes everywhere feel damp and cold even though it is really quite warm – and …
  • Scaling the Heights - The Trevors have achieved much notoriety in the extent of their exploits. Understandably, this may have escaped your attention and this article is therefore intended to bring you up to date with recent notable achievements and celebrated successes. In the mind of the Trevor, such success often seems to equate with altitude, distance and public …
  • Coffee, Books & MOTs - In the ancient and murky back streets of Ludlow, somewhere near the old town wall, there lies a well-kept secret. A specialist motorcycle MOT Centre. The garage is sited on one of the most expensive bits of real estate in the town and, for me, brings to mind the slightly run down Speedy Motors garage …
