Seen any horrible potholes?

It's that time of year again when the roads warm up after a hard winter and promptly disintegrate. The latest survey of local authorities reveals that despite emergency government funding of £200m, two thirds of authorities can not afford to mend the current crop of potholes.

Staff bikes: Moto Guzzi Griso SE - V7 Classic snaffled by actress

Just when I was learning to love the V7 Classic and its gentle take on motorcycling life, it has been snatched away from me.
