I had to drop off the FireBlade this afternoon as she's having her chain and sprockets changed tomorrow. Yes, I guess that I could have done that myself, but I would have needed to buy some tools and well frankly, I was feeling lazy. As a result I'm having to take the Ducati back into Central London tomorrow, which will be the first time I've actually ridden it since returning from France in July. I guess I should apologise in advance to my neighbours for what is about to wake them. But hey, look at the bright side. The garage gives the exhaust an awesome upgrade to the bass.
My name is Matt Brown and I'm a UK journalist formerly based in London, but now calling the South of England home. I've been riding bikes since 2007, but got hooked straight away. Nothing gives me the feeling of freedom, even when stuck in a city. In 2010 I became a RoSPA gold rider, but when it comes down to it, I'm Just a normal man, riding his bikes as often as he can.
