Our plan, to ride a bunch of 1970s sports mopeds from coast to coast, seemed like it would be quite a challenge until I called the hotel in Kirkby Lonsdale to book our first night away.The receptionist said: "Oh yes, we get a lot of people staying here who're doing the John O'Gro...

WELL, IT WAS bound to happen sooner or later I suppose. A commentator's worst nightmare. Jack (Burnicle) and me are up at Donington to do the commentary on the World Superbike round. Everything is going swimmingly, we're in the commentary booth half an hour before the first race,...
IT'S NOT BEEN A GOOD MONTH for us at TWO. First up Evil Jim (Bowen) had a fairly lucky escape in the 1000s test in the south of France when he slithered off the ZX-10R. We were doing some photos on a stretch of mountain road above Montpellier and had found the ideal corner. Going...

Been doing a fair bit recently, as it's been the last bit of summer. I did a day out at Scott Leathers' Open Day recently. There were loads of them there - MonsterMob team, the Kangaroo Kid quad bike rider bloke, Craig Jones the stunt bloke. Jimmy Aird from Scott wanted me to com...
AT FIRST I thought a scuffle had broken out. I'd seen a similar thing when I drummed for The Po' Boys in some of the less salubrious local clubs. The first thing you see from the stage is the crowd part slightly, and then your eyes zero in and you make out two or more blokes atte...
WELL, IT'S BEEN another mental month. I have, though, found time to get out on my trials bike. A load of the BSB lads have got 'em now, and so a bunch of up-and-coming road race talent descended on my gaff armed to the teeth with new trials equipment and Lycra. Craig Jones, Cal C...
