The Viker Biker. Oh dear.

When did you last see a Viking cross-dressing as an English Knight?

What can you say about this man?

This is the 'Viker Biker'. He rides an XVS1100 and is an interesting character, that's for sure.

I've seen him in the Stamford Morrisons, ordering something from the cafe, armour and all. I struggled to hear his armour creaking over the muttering and laughter from the bus-load of OAPs who'd arrived minutes before.

At the time he had a Virago 535 with the plaque on the front saying something along the lines of ' featured in The Sun, The Star, The Peterborough Evening Telegraph'. That made me laugh, a lot.

Clearly he enjoys a latte from Costa coffee from time to time too. As all Vikings do. Has he invaded your town and pillaged your local coffee shop?

No idea the Viker got to Costa's!...........I saw him trundling down the A47 towards Peterborough with music belting out of his cruiser............think it was the Virago at that time.  I've since seen him on the XVS in Peterborough town centre.   It's not often you see his face though.  I've seen him at the car boot sale at the Posh ground as I guess he's from Peterborough.  When he was at the car boot he just had his leather jacket on. Not all the horns and stuff.  I must admit when I first saw him I thought he was a complete pratt, but now that I'm used to it, I just chuckle and tell the missus I've seen the Viker biker't so queer as folk.......  Why is always cruiser riders though?
