If only Josh Brookes ruled the world…

BSB star’s bikes-be­fore-cars idea is ex­actly what we need

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Josh had a good an­swer to the MCN ques­tion about what law he would pass if he ruled the world. He said: “I’d make it so ev­ery­one on the road has to own a mo­tor­cy­cle if they want to own a car. With my law peo­ple would re­alise that a mo­tor­cy­cle is usu­ally the bet­ter op­tion.” Bike first, car later is the route many Euro­pean young­sters take be­cause the law puts them on a scooter sev­eral years ear­lier than their Bri­tish coun­ter­parts. It’s an op­tion aided by ex­tra sun­shine of course. Here, and in these mod­ern times, young­sters can usu­ally buy a car for less than a mo­tor­cy­cle and given the com­plex­i­ties of the li­cens­ing process, only the most de­ter­mined choose to join our dwin­dling num­ber. All right-minded folks agree that (with the ex­cep­tion of a few bell-ends) rid­ing a bike makes a per­son a safer car driver. Fred Fox, Shrop­shire
