MOTORCYCLE CHALLENGE: LANDS END TO JOHN O'GROATS IN A DAY
he Challenge is to travel from Lands End to John O'Groats on the longest day of the year between sunrise and sunset.
I've spent my life selling and promoting motorcycles so when one of your oldest friends is killed on one it hits you hard. Rob was killed in July last year on his bike. As motorcyclists we all know its a possibility. But my friend was a confident rider I rated him. He had crashed before, years ago, so he knew it hurts when you crash a motorcycle. Yes sometimes you can be lucky but often your not. Maybe this for some people is part of the attraction, the risk, the knowing that what your doing is potentially lethal. But the up side is well worth the risk, well for me anyway and I know Rob felt the same. He was motorbike mad riding off road and loving the whole scene his life revolved around bikes.
