DREAM GARAGES

What would you put in yours and who would you in­vite to it?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Dream Garage -

Alex and my­self are over the moon to be in­tro­duc­ing this Christ­mas sup­ple­ment, es­pe­cially as it’s full of so many amaz­ing bikes - the ma­chines the stars and top rac­ers dream of find­ing in their garage on Christ­mas morn­ing.

It has in­spired me. I’ll prob­a­bly buy Alex some­thing for his garage, be­cause he’s had a good year, and if he wins the World Su­per­bike Cham­pi­onship in 2017 I’ll even buy him the R1M he wins it on. Or maybe just the team scooter…

Sam: We usu­ally have an un­writ­ten code where we don’t get each other any­thing for Christ­mas, but our mis­suses have started bend­ing the rules, buy­ing presents for each other’s part­ner. Cor­rine buys me some­thing, and Ma­rina buys for Alex. It’s nice, but we’ve al­ways said: ‘Don’t get each other owt, we’ll play golf in­stead.’

Alex: For the last two years I’ve spent Christ­mas with Fred­die Sheene in Aus­tralia, but a Christ­mas bar­be­cue is a lot dif­fer­ent from the usual, and now that I’m in a re­la­tion­ship and en­gaged, I’m look­ing for­ward to spend­ing a tra­di­tional Bri­tish Christ­mas with my fam­ily and hers.

Sam: Yeah, nor­mally I like to go away for Christ­mas, too, be­cause ev­ery­thing is closed and there’s noth­ing to do – and I have no at­ten­tion span. Ideally I nip off on De­cem­ber 23 and get back on De­cem­ber 30, and get away with buy­ing presents, miss out on the drama, save money and catch the sun some­where nice! But this year I’m go­ing to try to chill out with fam­ily and friends. I’m not very good at it, but we’re go­ing away straight af­ter­wards to Spain to start train­ing and rid­ing, so it’ll be a last send-off be­fore that hap­pens. It’s go­ing to be an ex­cit­ing 2017. I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to go­ing into Mo­togp, but it’s go­ing to be a tough learn­ing year so it’s nice to have the home sup­port. It’s al­ways great to go to Sil­ver­stone, and I love the sup­port there, so thank you all so much for that! Alex: Yes, a mas­sive thank you to ev­ery­one read­ing for all their sup­port dur­ing the year. It’s re­ally ap­pre­ci­ated, and Merry Christ­mas to ev­ery­one! Here’s to a bet­ter 2017 for both of us – en­joy Dream Garages (we’re on page 19) and buy MCN to find out how we do next year!

‘a mas­sive thank you to ev­ery­one for all YOUR sup­port. It’s re­ally ap­pre­ci­ated, and Merry Christ­mas’
