Prince William rides his 1198S Corse home from footie

Royal dude Prince William rode his Ducati 1198S Corse home from football training last night, the Sun reports - in a welcome and defiant up-yours to anti-bike society. Clad in tracksuit, trainers, paddock jacket and tinted visor the MCN-reading Prince managed to potter the few well-lit miles home to Clarence House on his '180mph, 1100cc superbike' without so much as...

Fair Play!

I say fair play to him. I am forever getting a bollocking from my dad for not wearing leathers when I just pop up the shops, but at the end of the day, he probably didn't exceed 30mph. If you're going out with the intention to speed, overtake or ride for a long period of time then yes, wearing trakkies isn't the most sensible of ideas. He didn't break any laws, technically he could of been wearing a Borat thong. At least it shows he is normal and he knows it, its not like he was doing something provocative like speeding or a pulling a wheelie?! Give him a break, he can't fart without the world scrutinising him for it, so clearly he bought a flat out Ducati to get some freedom! Hero.

Wills gear

According to M'cycle sport and leisure magazine (May issue), April 2012 will see a law for the mandatory wearing of one-piece leathers for all riders introduced, so he'd better watch his step as we all know what breed of animal North Wales Police are!

Cut the poor sod some slack, he'll get enough shit hurled his way just for being royal! So he rode a bike in less than full leathers, armour etc etc. Nice to see him sticking two fingers up to the nanny state of this nation, and he's being seen on a bike, which must surely be a good thing for "the cause", yes?

Fucking good luck to them both, I'm not a royalist but why shouldn't they be happy?

William, get Kate a monster or something, I imagine she would be the sexiest biker in Blighty, she would look stunning in black leathers... Btw, I feel very inspired seeing Will on a bike. Coolest duke, period!

I agree silly thing to do riding without proper protective clothing and also dark visor at night!  if it was me or thee we would get a right bollocking + fine/points  but its one of the perks of being future king of England.

He's not exactly harming anyone aprt from himself and having seen what happened to his mum you would think he would wear the gear but personally if i was future king of England i would live it up and have my own royal race circuit and pit girls feeding me Harribo's and serving me a nice chilled beer after a few laps (don't mention drink driving) and when i get home i would send for a few bike thieves and personally behead them and play footie with their turnips before retiring to my luxury bedroom with one of my many wives! LoL

Ok we all can dream eh LoL

But at the end of the day "Well Done Wills and Kate  and Wills you jammy barsteward getting a chick like Kate she's a stunner and would look awesome in tight leathers perched on any ducati!

Off for a kip
