Taken for a ride

The daily avalanche of PR emails continues unabated, and one from Mrs Nita Korhonen, director of the Switzerland-based Federation Internationale de Motorcyclisme, caught my eye (even though I have no idea how I ended up on their mailing list).

I am honoured to have been asked to submit my nomination for the prestigious 2015 Women in Motorcycling Award which, according to the blurb, “celebrates” those who have improved the lot of women “in all motorcycling areas”.

Such an invitation cannot pass unaccepted. I had these two suggestions but I’m going with the granny because at least she can ride it. The girl looks pretty good but was disqualified for not knowing which end of the bike was which.
