NEIL HODG­SON For­mer World Su­per­bike cham­pion, now BT Sport Motogp pre­sen­ter 2013 KTM 350 SX-F

“I’d have to get my­self a dirt bike again, some­thing like a three­year-oldyear- KTM 350 SX-F. I rode onee a few years back and I was re­ally im­pressed. I’ve not had a dirt bikeke for four years and I re­ally miss it. Rid­ing on the dirt is just about as much fun as you can have on n two wheels, in my opin­ion, and it’s bril­liant for hon­ing your skills no mat­ter what you ride.”

STEVE PARRISH 500cc Grand Prix racer, now road rac­ing com­men­ta­tor 1965 YAMAHA YDS3 250

“Back in Fe­bru­ary 1970, aged 16 and one day, I col­lected my first bike – a Yamaha YDS3 250 from Hallen’s of Cam­bridge. I’d drooled over it for months be­fore I bought it, but when I did it lasted about two days be­fore I seized it. I did my test on it, then part-ex­changed it for a BSA A10, but I’d love to buy an­other one again now so that I could get it to run prop­erly.”
