Wheels keep turning for retired RSO
Roy Buchanan, former road safety officer and keen motorcyclist, has penned a feature length article in the April 2013 issue of The Classic MotorCycle magazine.
Roy, whose career included a spell with the Met Police’s Traffic Division and 16 years as the London Borough of Sutton’s RSO, retired in May 2011.
When in post, Roy was a regular contributor to this newsfeed, usually on the subject of motorcycling or roads policing; he never shied away from expressing his views and participating in passionate debate.
When he retired, Roy said that he hoped to return to journalism – his evening job in the 1970s – and The Classic MotorCycle feature indicates that he has realised this ambition.
In the feature, Roy reflects on the impression left on him by the motorcycling memoirs of Roy K. Battson as recounted in his book The Land Beyond The Ridge. The author speaks affectionately about biking in the 1920s, the “Golden Decade” for motorcyclists, and recounts “60 years of the finest hobby man can have”.
The April issue of Classic MotorCycle magazine is on sale now at WH Smiths and other outlets (£4.10) - or you can purchase it online (£2.99): http://www.pocketmags.com/Default.aspx
