Services (training, mentoring, etc.)


You may have been looking for, which was the web site of John Deacon, the motorcyclist, prior to his untimely death in 2001. I acquired in 2004, not knowing it had been his site.

I did ride bikes for nearly forty years, as it happens: mostly BMW RTs, but never in a race or a rally.

I always used to be slightly surprised by the reaction I got when ringing up for spares, etc. It was several years before I learned of Dakar and another John Deacon, and realized what had been happening.

If you really were looking for information on Dakar's John Deacon, and in case you haven't already seen it, the only decent current link I can find is this BBC news story.

I have found a web snapshot from 1998 taken by the amazing It didn't have all the links so you will get some 404s but at least something of John Deacon's original web site is preserved.
