I went to watch the Le Mans Motogp at the Bike Shed in Shoreditch at the weekend. You might think the trendy bike shop is all about hand-built retros, flat whites and expensive haircuts and it is, but every Motogp weekend they lay on big screens so you can watch the racing. Freddie Spencer was even there for lunch. Bike Shed staff are really friendly, there’s safe on-site parking and there are loads of cool bikes, clothing and memorabilia. As a Rossi fan I was gutted at the end, but riding my GSX-R1000R home put a smile back on my face. The GSX-R also got many admiring glances, despite it being slightly out of place.
