Er­ror 404: Editor not found

Motorcycle Sport & Leisure - - Front Page - Tony Carter

But we at MSL are far from the norm. ‘Not nor­mal’ is how you might pi­geon hole us – although quite why you’d want to put a pi­geon in a hole is beyond me. Poor pi­geons. I’m di­gress­ing. So what to wax on about? Well, as I left you with the news of our bashed-up editor last month, so I shall con­tinue along the same vein this time around – for what I have to tell you is good news.

Mikko is now out of hos­pi­tal and back home where he con­tin­ues his con­va­les­cence at a se­date pace.

He can now hob­ble around on a pair of crutches and, aside from get­ting very tired very quickly and oc­ca­sion­ally need­ing things ex­plained here and there, he’s pretty much back to full power in the nog­gin.

Of course, his re­turn to power (both phys­i­cal and MSL- based) will take a while still. Dur­ing his ac­ci­dent Mikko suf­fered a long list of in­juries and to have him back on his feet and al­ready talk­ing about even­tu­ally rid­ing again is noth­ing short of in­cred­i­ble.

The su­perb staff at Queen’s Med­i­cal Cen­tre in Not­ting­ham are mag­i­cal be­ings who per­form mir­a­cles as if they are ev­ery­day oc­cur­rences and de­serve all the good things and praise that they can get. To each and ev­ery one of them, thank you from the bot­tom of our mo­tor­cy­cle boots. We owe you lots.

On a very re­cent trip to Mikko’s home we took a set of pho­to­graphs to­gether which you can see here. While we were tak­ing the pics Mikko told me that he wanted me to pass on his heart­felt thanks to ev­ery­one who has sent him pos­i­tive mes­sages and tips on how to keep a mo­tor­cy­cle up­right and stay away from trac­tors in fu­ture.

The fine Finn may be lim­ited in what he can get up to at the mo­ment but that doesn’t mean he’s not al­ready plot­ting out ideas for fu­ture is­sues of MSL.

You just can’t keep a good Mikko down for very long.

So, let’s do it then. In this is­sue of MSL are a lot of mo­tor­cy­cles and mo­tor­cy­cle rid­ers. They ride new bikes, old bikes and go on trips on bikes. There’s some news about bikes and sto­ries about rid­ing kit to wear while rid­ing bikes.

Plus other mo­tor­cy­cle-re­lated things.

There – with any luck that ticks all the boxes for an editor’s col­umn.

En­joy the is­sue and have a safe ride.

Tony, Hold­ing-the-fort
