After 90 years the world famous motorcycle team is to be disbanded, the national press do not give a reason, only conjecture, in that the elf & safety jobsworth's have struck again, I strongly suspect its a cost cutting exercise, instigated by MOD or some bean counter in Whitehall, any comments or suggestions?

I think "World Famous" is over egging it.

Also, their stunts aren't that impressive anymore*, and they're probably not a particularity effective recruiting or retention tool.

Cost probably does come into it - if you haven't noticed, the army is skint. Why keep something of limited use/effect? As a bike rider it'll be sad to see them go, but time marches on.


*look at the x-games etc for much better shows.

Have they been cut again? I thought they had been cut before, judging by all of the previous discussions on the subject.

Locked.
