I presume it covers a side car:

Courtiers and police protection officers are now said to also be concerned about dangers to his younger brother, who must be accompanied by police guards whenever he goes out on the bike.

Good effort to the fella.................

Early twenties, first time rider, post tour soldier, with his "Secondary occupation (Royal)" with his postcode, a blackbird between his legs, body coursing full of testosterone..................... I'd laugh him off the phone if I worked for direct line

Big fan of the bloke but I'm putting some cash on an early demise or at least a driving licence holiday for HRH :D

I've never ridden a sports bike but I wonder just how much of the performance you can use safely on a public road. My guess is that it peters out somewhere about a CBR600 - beyond that even on a dry empty road you are beyond 10/10ths if you use all the potential. Fully comp on him will be the price of the bike, plus.

Personally I resent being tricked into visiting this topic under false pretences with a title that promises so much but delivers a message completley different to what it offered / what I was expecting ! :D

As much as you like.
When Prince William passed his test he took himself off to the Isle of Man TT if I remember rightly. Perfectly legal to go as fast as you like and damned good fun.

Ah ha DB, I too came in looking to relive some of the time I spent in the

Caribbean as a young squaddie. Nassau, Kingston, Georgetown and

British Honduras. Still, I enjoy motorbikes as well, so I'm not short

changed. Good on him....he looks the boy for the part. Just keep those

feckin reporters away.

I got caught as well. I was expecting something more interesting than a motor bike.

MSR, I envy you old son........but you have shown us your willie before.

Seriously, good on you. There is nothing like it is there? :D :D

A great bike but a very bad choice as a first bike, not because of the power, more because it has a dual braking system that will catch him out when he gets on anything else.

Memories of fun in Nairobi, Mombassa, Aden, Belize, and the Caribbean jogged by the thread's title - only to discover they're talking about a bloody motorbike - and it's not even a Harley! Bahh!

Never ridden a CBR600. Does it wheely with ease in 3rd gear? Because a Blackbird does. Some lucky git in the RDPD is going to have fun trying to make a Honda ST2000 keep up. And the scooter powered Paps might as well stay at home.

Good move.

Good day BD. Just as a matter of, shall we say research, how many

black ladies did you in fact erm, er relate to in Aden? If I recall, they

were pretty hard to come by......still, some are better at it than others. :D
