Around 700 bikers revved into Acton on Sunday for an open day staged by the Adventure Bike Shop in Bull Lane – and to see writer Ted Simon, who is credited with writing the definitive book about motorcycling.
Mr Simon – pictured on the left with visitors Graham Field, Dom Giles and Nathan Millward – now lives in America and visited the Acton business while on a trip to Suffolk.
His book, Jupiter’s Travels, is about his experience of travelling the world by motorbike.
Shop owner Cliff Batley said Mr Simon had already agreed to come back next year.
The open day, which was in aid of the East Anglian Air Ambulance, featured three other biker authors.
