I know what you mean - My dad use to be right into his scooters and bikes when he was younger, but said that the roads are totally different now and its very risky!

Was just an idea :(

Although a bike appeals in some ways, it does not in many, many others. The statistics are the main reason, plus to get the "buzz" you're probably having to drive at speeds at and beyond the speed limit. I'd rather keep my license thanks ;)

Sprinting, and karting, and two relatively safe sports (I know not without their own risks) that can be enjoyed at a highly competitive level. As many of you know, I'm also highly competitive ;)

Anyway, sorry for the :offtopic2: Kev! When's your next event? Any trips to Alford planned?
