Re: RIP Gary Mason

For one horrible moment I thought you were posting about the BSB rider, which with his crash record, wouldn't have surprised me.

Tragic about the boxer though. Seemed like a decent bloke. A big bruiser but just not nasty enough to reach the heights.

That's what I thought, he always appeared to be a decent guy when he was on the TV.

The other thing that caught my attention is that he was killed in a cycling accident. I use a push-bike quite regularly, you see.

Re: RIP Gary Mason

I too thought you were referring to the BSB rider but sorry to hear about the boxer.

Me too. In fact I spend much more on my bicycles that I do on my motorcycles.

I'm not as avid a cyclist as you, I just have a cheap mountain bike that I use to get to the gym. I use it to go in to town on the odd occasion too.

A couple of my mates are keen cyclists, one has a carbon fibre mountain bike and road bike - either one is worth more than both of my motorcycles!
