You'd expect road testing motorcycles to be a fairly glamorous affair, with the only dangers being the danger of riding a motorcycle close to its limit, but I bet you never thought road testers would be accused of terrorism!
This is exactly what happened while testing a few 125cc supermotos in London recently. Apparently riding in circles outside the Houses of Parliament with rucksacks is considered a threat.
So the rozzers stopped us to see if we were terrorists, obviously we said we weren't.
The receipt proudly sits in my living room, reassuring all guests I'm not a terrorist.
