THE choice of adventurers, the BMW R1200GS can famously be ridden anywhere in the world.
Except the Co-Op in Duston, Northamptonshire, as this would-be robber discovered.
Police have release the image of the man trying unsuccessfully to ride his GS into the shop at 10.20am on Thursday April 27.
The force said in a statement: "A shop staff member was in the doorway which prevented the offender from entering the shop. He threatened the shop worker and demanded money, however this was refused and he drove off.
"The offender was white, aged under 30, very slim and he wore a blue tracksuit top, blue jeans and trainers. He also wore motorcycle gloves and a black, blue and white helmet."
How was he planning to turn around?
