The Starfield name was originally conceived by Daphne Fielding and registered as the kennel name for her Samoyeds when she started breeding them in 1985. We had kept Samoyeds from the early 1960s but only as pets until circa 1978 when Daphne decided to start showing our then current pet.

I borrowed the Starfield name for my business name when I was self-employed and used it amongst other things, to market a computer program which I wrote to keep breeding records and print the pedigrees an otherwise tedious job.The web site has been created to share with everyone our separate interests in the Samoyed breed (her hobby) and in motorcycles (his hobby). Click on the tabs to the left for the rest of the Starfield story.

My interest in bikes dates from my early teens and I cannot remember a time when I did not have one or two around the place even when we lived abroad; Actually, especially when I was abroad as the weather was so much better for biking. The 'His' part of the site covers some of the bikes I have owned over the last 10 years or so. Many of them were restored by me, most of them were abused by me especially the older Brit bikes which were regularly used in VMCC events, particularly those which had a green lane content. I hasten to add that most of the bikes pictured have moved on though at one time we were harbouring 14 bikes. I am trying to sample all the bikes that I would have liked to own in my youth so I tend to buy, restore/fettle, enjoy then sell to fund the next project. Every now and then I find one I cannot bear to part with. Sometimes I find one I cannot get rid of quickly enough. The greatest pleasure comes from turning a rusting pile of bits into a usable, tidy machine.

In December 2006 I decided to extend the site to include some details and pictures of my other great love, Scuba Diving. Ten years on and I have decided to give up diving for various reasons though I am still a social member of my local dive club. In December 2016 I suddenly got an urge to take up model railways as a new hobby and I started a blogg on this activity in January 2017. .
