tyre test

i don't fancy riding about in a shopping centre, not sure my tyres would given any grip.....but wait hold on, no pot holes......dry.......warm......a few food outlets (thinking usa/italy/india/china)......... could be a mini world tour, Mr Saunders and MCN could do an adventure bike test, no not hypermotard's but shoppingmotard, could be the way forward for the winter sunday run.

Triumph

There's a blurry pic on the BBC news, looks like a Street Triple at the front and something a little bit taller at the back judging by the headlight height.

Part of me wants it to be a Tiger to make it a two wheeled Triumph Italian Job...

Giving bikers a bad name? Why, do you think they could have got a Transit van through there? I think it was just a case of the right tool for the job.
