From a BSA C15 to a Honda GL1000 Gold Wing, he's experienced a wide variety of bikes, which he's ridden throughout the UK and (occasionally) in Europe too.

Since then he's served on the board of the Motorcycle Industry Association, towed a trailer behind a motorcycle at 125 mph, organised a bike launch in a brewery, and given his local MP (a young David Cameron) a lift on the back of a prototype Royal Enfield motorcycle!
