Just wondering if anyone ever heard from Dave Miller after he left the island a few years ago. Or Parky, for that matter.

They used to have 'The Two Wheels' in the Old Town.

Thanks,
K.

As far as I know Dave sold up Two Wheels and moved across the road to open a restaurant area above the ??? (sorry can’t remember the bar), but I don’t think that lasted too long and think I heard that he’s moved to Germany (wasn’t his mother German ?).
Great bar Two Wheels !

Yeah, thats the last i heard of him too - that he'd gone to Germany. I know his father died a few years back and there was some difficulty in contacting Dave then. Have heard nothing since.

The Two Wheels was a mighty spot alright. I worked there briefly in 2000. The food was fairly top notch too. Dave's curries could cause spontaneous combustion at times! I think i met more characters from the island in those few months that i worked there, than during the rest of my time in Lanzarote. The Two Wheels was a magnet for lunatics.

Erm, Kier I found I rather gravitated to the Two Wheels, so maybe you’re right about it being a magnet for lunies !
Dave was more than a bit of a loonie himself, how he got away with what he used to say was unbelievable, although someone did turn the bar over one night. If I remember rightly he had a very attractive lady friend, and did he also sometimes wear a full white Navy suit (or have I imagined that ?)
Wasn’t Parky also called Dave ? I think he went across the rd as well ?


The food there was a revelation !

You could always safely assume that you were never the biggest loon in The Two Wheels when either Dave Miller or Dave Parky were around. They were best friends and their own biggest enemies too.

I remember some of the things either of them used to come out with at times. All said in good taste, of course! (Especially to people coming out of the toilets :roll: )

They used to dress up whenever the mood took them - cavemen, Yorkshire lads, German WW2 soliders and yeah, naval personal too.

The Two Wheels used to be on the corner, as you walk into Centro Olivin. (Egyptian) Tony had the English Supermarket there now, the last time i was back.

Dave Miller Sr. actually opened 'Miller's Africa' - it was a disco-bar originally.

Before it became 'Africa Miller' and changed its, ahem, "business" status :oops:

Ah yes - Africa Miller !! I'd never made the connection before Doh !

Always thought of it as some sort of voodoo temple, never went anywhere near it.
