Here’s a few who could be seen generally brightening up the show stands at Intermot in Cologne this week.

Du-carti’s ‘don’t call me a cruiser’ Diavel takes on a 460bhp C7 Corvette

While car versus bikes races are always interesting, I’d like to see American dragbike rider Rich Gadson take on Regis Laconi, who recently beat the likes of Foggy, Bayliss, Iannone and Dovi at the recent World Ducati Week Diavel Drag Race.

No, it’s a 2002 Honda Silverwing

The tube strike will have caused misery for thousands of London commuters today. So it’s a shame that this Romanian superhero couldn’t help everyone out in our capital as he does in this clip.

Evading a traffic fine: what’s your sob story?
