    I let Anita have a shot on my previous Fireblade (she's 5'4"), and she rode it from the garage to the end of the drive, and that's as far as she got before she dropped it So that that was her first and last go.

    She's since had a Honda CBF600 (which she only dropped twice, both times on a grassy field), a Kawasaki ER6-F (which she never dropped) and her current one is a Hyosung GV650 Aquila, which is a cruiser type bike with a Suzuki SV650 engine, and is a keeper as the forward controls give her knackered feet (Morton's Neuroma) an easier time)

    She's not dropped a bike for some years now, but she ain't getting a shot on my Blade, not while I've a breath in my body

    Nice. Looks a bit like someone's been doing origami, but with steel instead of paper. Never ridden one, but KTM always get good reviews.

    Should be a fast as hell go-anywhere bike. Don't know what quality of finish is like, but with 17C winters, you're not going to be seeing many salted roads I think KTM are Austrian or something, so I imagine they do get to see some cold weather.

    I see Boris has now won the Tory leadership race. Once he becomes Prime Minister, we'll have our own Trump 'mini me'. If it wasn't so tragic, it would be hillarious! What will the rest of the World be thinking of us? It's a major embarrassment!!

    Give him a chance, he's going to make Britain great again, dude!

    And of course, he won't be a hypocrite based on what he said when Gordon Brown took over back in 2007, will he... I expect the first thing he'll do is call a general election, just like he expected back then...



    (I wondered if this was "fake news" but no, it is definitely extracted from his telegraph column at the time - https://www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/...tish-ally.html)

    Come on Boris, put your money where your mouth is!

    The system is so fcuked up and the embarrassment stake already so high that I don't think anything can get any worse ...............(or can it?).

    He might just be the lunatic that parliament needs for a shake up.

    At least we have a classical philosopher as PM instead of another bloody lawyer.

    What is this Peloton Video Cycling nonsense we see advertised on the box? Surely a TV screen is not needed to use an indoor cycling machine? It looks ridiculous.

    I think the idea is to motivate you to train harder. I'm thinking of offering a similar 'real time' service where I motivate people to drink beer and watch TV.
