LOST LUG­GAGE

Bike’s res­i­dent fast bloke James Hay­don has just got his rid­ing kit back, two weeks af­ter he needed it for the Pani­gale V4 launch. Nice work Easyjet.

CAMP­ING

DEAD BAT­TERY

5.30am and West­lake curses the Z1000SX’S flat bat­tery. He nearly misses a plane. Turns out af­ter fit­ting heated kit he hadn’t re­fit­ted the pos­i­tive ter­mi­nal.
