January 1st 2010 is the date BMW S1000RRs will start rolling out of UK dealers. I’m not sure how that will work in Scotland as Hogmanay normally lasts at least a week so no one will be sober enough to get a key in a showroom door far less ride a 190bhp superbike. If you do happe...
Unless I can count taking old trainers to the recycle skip at Tesco or dumping my loft junk in the doorway of Age Concern then I don’t suppose I do a great deal of charity work. I do help Riders For Health with the British Grand Prix ride-in but then that’s me having fun on motor...
