Sometimes leaving everything until the last minute means that you work that bit harder to get your bike just right ell, it does as far as I'm concerned - this is becoming somewhat of a recurring theme with me. You know how it is, there's loads to do but you keep telling yourself, 'there's ages yet, I'll do that next week'.

With this in mind, you may be wondering, why I would want to mess with what a few judged as perfection. Well, it's a difficult question to answer because...

It's funny, isn't it, how all the characters in biker fiction who've been inspirational in some way to us lot in bikerland have been, in the main, the bad guys mean, while the hero in'The Wild One' was obviously Marlon Brando as 'Johnny' (who was also a *bad boy'), but the coolest one was Lee Marvin's character 'Chino', the proper wild one. Both Dennis Hopper's and Peter Fonda's characters in 'Easy Rider' were bad lads (they made their money selling drugs, remember ), Kaneda in 'Akira' was the...

Riders Are Voters Manifesto

Motorcycles and scooters have the potential to address many transport problems, also helping to reduce social exclusion, transport C02 and improve quality of life. The potential benefits, both as a popular form of transport and as recreation, have been suppressed by a general failure of local and national authorities to 'Think Bike'. The UK's principal motorcycle organisations call on the next Parliament to ensure that future transport, business and social policy realises the full potential of...
