Was in Upper Dunmurry Lane for a while,just down from Poleglass.Moved in around Xmas 79 and the sink was a solid block of ice! I always remember the army helicopters with the "Night Sun" on them,fairly lit the street up!
Of course that was in the days before mobile phones,internet access,email and bar code readers in shops etc...Didnt have a car,though the missus did,and I rode a motorbike to work.I went to work on a Kawasaki 250.Moved back to Bangor in 1981 and bought a place in Carnalea that was a tip,just had to get back to Bangor.Bangor by the sea.

Stop whizzing past all the people in Bangor on that bike of yours, bangorbiker 8)
Stop occasionally to tell everyone in North Down all about the Forum. We need more members.

On another tack....I see Crazy Prices is soon to be flattened.Has anyone got any photos of it in the early days? It was the first supermarket (with trolleys and checkouts etc..) in Ireland I believe. It was built on the site of Henderson's farm and I remember the farm house,just!Took some pics of the pub before it was flattened.Viscount of Clandeboye or the threepenny bit as it was known locally.

Bikes don't stop in Bangor Christopher, they just keep going, have you never been on the ring road or down the sea front on a good day?

It was one of those bikers near took my wing mirror off as he tried the old weaving up the middle of 2 lanes . Didnt get the car door open in time.  >:(
Tho I must say most bikers are courteous drivers and they even go to the trouble of giving me a wave with thir arm up their back when I let them past. At least I think its a wave.   ;)
If it was'nt for venetian blinds it would be curtains for everybody!
