Well Ive just got back from spending an extended weekend in Birmingham, which included a trip on Friday to Motorcycle Live. I'll be writing something on on the show in the next few days, but I just wanted to say thanks to all those on the Ducati and Kawasaki stands who were extremely helpful to a part time, amateur journalist. Thank you Chris Walker for putting up with me being a fan boy. A huge massive thanks to John McAvoy who was extremely generous with his time and his advice. Thanks to Charlie from Fast Bikes and I hope the coffees didn't get too cold and finally thanks to the guys at RandG and Calsport for the discounted stuff. I had a great time and for those who went I hope you got all that you wanted from the show
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.
