I am an 80's Mod. That's when I joined the scene, in '83, as a 14 year old. So I tend to stick with the 80's Mod thing, 80's scooters and style. Do you lot have an era, even if it wasn't your own,…Read More
"Ok so according to you Wiggins won the SPOTY because he is friends with Paul Weller. Explain Mark Cavendish winning it in 2011 then? Your extreme dislike of Wiggins baffles me, are you jealous of him? Is that it?"
"Ok Jordan, have it your way. Brad Wiggins is s*** and Murray should have won. Mark Cavendish must be a mod too, that's how he won SPOTY isn't it? Nothing to do with his incredible dedication? By the way, is the sky green and the grass blue…"
"I box Gordon, light heavyweight, at a decent ameteur level. I do 1-2 hours a day. Pros do a lot more, and are incredibly fit-but are compensated commensurately if succesful. TDF level cyclist do 6 or 8 hours per day....I was involved in top level…"
"Sorry Jordan, but you are coming across as bitter. Wiggins didn't win the SPOTY because he wears nice clobber, he won it because he deserved it. Any other year, it would have been Murray. But this year his efforts were surpassed."

"For me, my scooter has to mean something to me. I wasn't around in the 60's so what was de rigeur then means little to me. Early P125X, V100 Sport, a metalflake Li150 and an ochre GP200. That's what I had and wanted as a tennager and…"
"The thing is, Wiggins didn't just win the toughest sporting event on earth, he won a host of other races and Olympic gold too. And the money he earns is not a patch on the tennis players and soccer players of this world. Murrays achievements…"
"So Oasis, Blur, or even the Jam can't be Mod either? Or Pretty Green clothing? If it has to be old to be Mod the scene will die. I personally don't think these are very attractive to look at but we DO have to move with the times, A half…"
"Mate, you are the one who seems to think the term Hard Mod was just invented to piss you off lol. Were the terms (for Mods) Mids/Mockers/Tickets/Faces/Scooter Boys also not used in the 60's and a figment of the collective imagination?"
