Motorbike Related Christmas Stories


In ENGLISH


Towards the end of the year, traditionaly many Christmas stories are told.

Wonderful, often a bit romantic, if not sentimental, tales with a happy end, larded sometimes with a little humour.

Stories in which mysticism and miracles as well as heroes, (guardian) angels, etc. play a part.

In a 'motorbike related' Christmas story there is an additional 'ingredient'; the motorcycle...


I wrote my first motorbike related Christmas tale in 2006, in memory of a biker-mate who passed away that year.

Since you hardly find motorbike related Christmas tales, I decided to write another one the year after, and again in 2008, 2009...

And so I ended up writing one every year up until 2017. 12 in total, one of which consists of 2 parts.

.  I posted them during the Christmas season in 3 Dutch biker forums.

 

I am now in the process of translating these stories to English. So far there are 7 now,  Marked in red . in the menu below.
