Bikes are the best

Here’s why bikes are great: 1) At the Sun­flower meet­ing I wit­nessed BSB star Danny Buchan step off the podium and hand his cap to a kid who was de­lighted. 2) In Mo­togp when the cam­era fo­cuses in, es­pe­cially on the kids in Moto3, they are all smil­ing and giv­ing it the thumbs up. Not like F1 where you would think some­one had stolen their Christ­mas presents. Colin Logue, email

The right trousers

Just to let you know I bought the Weiss Seat­tle jeans as tested by Bruce Dunn in MCN and these are re­ally great. I had to buy a size above nor­mal to get a good fit, but they are well worth the money. Your pa­per is much im­proved re­cently and I’ve been read­ing it since 1959. Bill Sut­tie, email

Rea couldn't beat Cal

So Jonathan Rea reck­ons he would have done bet­ter than Cal Crutchlow in Mo­togp. Well, he didn’t quite cut it in 2012 did he and if he is so sure he could do bet­ter than Cal then why didn’t he take up the satel­lite rides he reck­ons he was of­fered? Cal him­self is now one of the ‘aliens’ beat­ing or be­ing amongst the other lead­ers in a lot of races, all on a satel­lite bike. Rea may have won a lot of WSB races and ti­tles since he went with Kawasaki, but where was he be­fore then? A nearly man! Keith Devlin, email

Don't stop me now

I popped to a lo­cal bike spe­cial­ist in Lon­don to­day and a young lad on a scooter turned up with his front disc in bits. He said he didn’t spend money on his bike as “it’s only gonna get stolen any­way.” Paul Scott, email

Proper warm wel­come

Great piece by Adam ‘Chad’ Child on Squires café and I couldn’t agree more (MCN, Oc­to­ber 24). We even got my mum Dot to go when in her nineties. She passed away ear­lier this year but was al­ways sup­port­ive of her three bike nut sons (helped by hav­ing a biker dad too). Here’s Phil, Dot and me (l to r) en­joy­ing a sunny af­ter­noon at Squires. Mum did the Squires norm wan­der­ing round the bikes and chat­ting to ev­ery­one. Robin Smith, email

He wasn't go­ing to get much stop­ping power out of that

Phil, Dot and Robin prov­ing you're never too old for Squires
