World's biggest motorbike balloon takes off

Up, up and away! George White promotional campaign is full of hot air

SOUTH ENGLAND motorcycle dealer George White Superbikes has commissioned what is considered to be the largest tailor-made hot-air balloon in the world.

The balloon, which undertook its maiden flight on Friday last week, has been crafted in the shape of a rider in the crouch position on a superbike, and will make appearances at each round of BSB and a number of other major events during 2010.
