Well I spent the day at the NEC on Saturday visiting Motorcycle Live and it was utterly packed. The general consensus agoungst my friends is one of disappointment, in fact, they've said that for the last three years, but for me, I think its really rather good and I always enjoy it. The only down side is that its a victim of its own success and as a result was utterly packed with people. I gave up looking at the BMW and Suzuki stands, but for different reasons. The range of bikes across the show was fantastic with great showings from Honda and Kawasaki especially. The Ducati stand was and is always good, but then I'm bias. The one stand I really did like, was the most basic and had hardly any people on it, but the EBR stand was a great thing to see. From the ashes a phoenix has risen and I would love one of their bikes to be sat in my garage. The bike of the show was always going to be the Kawasaki H2R, but I'll try and get a little write up on the site in a few days. Note to self though, next year, I'm going during the bloody week.

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.
