But the point is he might not have ...

Trevor Franklin, 07 July 2011 12:23

Harley-Davidson’s representation at the 2011 Goodwood Festival of Speed was huge. If it wasn’t the display of Harley machinery and promo ladies drawing the crowds to its stand, then it was to the chance to see stars of both bike and car worlds meeting with Bill Davidson, great-grandson of Arthur Davidson, one of the original co-founders of the American company. ...

Trevor Franklin, 21 September 2009 12:18

This video shows the end result of a wheelie onboard a Moto Morini Scrambler that landened slightly off-skew with an MCN staffer on it, or off it as was the case.  As far as we know there isn't a medical journal in the world that recognises this type of injury, but maybe MCN readers could come up with a suitable ...
