Once again motorcycle riders in Oxfordshire are getting a bad press, this time thanks to an idiot called Mr Florian Combe.
A quarter mile wheelie and speeds of up to 100mph on a dual carriageway with a speed limit of 50mph. What the heck was he thinking? Actually I dont think he was using his brain, but there you go.
Public roads are not the place for this kind of riding, if you want to do it then take it to a race track. Its no wonder that riders, and especially sportsbike riders, get targeted by the police, abuse from other road users, and negative press.

He has been convicted of careless driving and the case has been adjourned until 13th November 2008, I wait with interest to see what will happen..
