Stereophonics guitarist Richard Jones has taken charge of a brand new Suzuki B-King to help with his daily commute through London to the recording studio.

Jones fell in love with the futuristic styling of the 1340cc Suzuki B-King and so he rang the UK headquarters for a test ride before becoming a fully-fledged owner.

Jones said: “It looks out of this world and despite its imposing size and power it's actually incredibly easy to ride. I've been using it to get to the recording studio, and it's dramatically dropped my journey times across town compared to the car, while being great fun too.”

Meanwhile, Jones’ former band-mate, Stuart Cable has also been getting his hands on a bike after winning a bet to change a rear bike tyre in under an hour.

Cable was set the challenge by staff at Triumph in Birmingham and managed it in 56 minutes, and his prize – a £12,500 Triumph Rocket III.

Fortunately he managed to keep his famous hairstyle, which would have been his penance had he lost the bet.
