From Motorcycles to Systems Engineering… this is where I have been posting stuff I like to think is useful to someone, especially me.

I’m particularly passionate about embedded control (Internet of Things), Systems Engineering, Motorcycle Engineering and writting code in PHP and various languages (and have been since the late 70’s).

If you are into motorcycles, make sure you get a copy of my book ‘How to Rebuild and Restore Classic Japanese Motorcycles’ which was published by Motorbooks in August 2015. Its pretty much sold out everywhere but Amazon may have some copies left. Hopefully it gets a second publishing.

Im working on two more books, one on Cafe Racer’s and another on advanced Arduino HCS Design.

My previous home pages are now gone, so references to z900.piczo.com can now be ignored! I still have a very old page at http://www.gpz900.org/ which will need updating to wordpress in due course.

Life is short, the art long, opportunity fleeting, experiment dangerous, judgment difficult.”
