FAREWELL, AND ADIEU!
It’s with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to Jon Bentman. JB has been a regular contributor to for a number of years and his main road tests have been a mainstay of the mag. He is leaving for pastures new. Never knowingly under-verbose, JB would never use one word when several would do (after all, was paying) and yet every single one of ’em punched above its weight, like a flabby bare-knuckle boxer way past his prime. With his interests stretching from 1970s machines through to the 1990s as well as those awful dirt-bike things, he had a breadth of knowledge that was unrivalled: at least until we find some one half his age and cost. You’ll see his penultimate piece for on the Kawasaki H1 in this issue and his final piece – on Honda’s VT500 in the August issue. JB, we wish you well mate!
