  6. Another example of crappy journalism. She didn't crash at 254 mph as the headline says!! This from the actual story (still scary to crash at 90 mph):

    "Resting at her home in S****horpe, Lincolnshire, she said: "I had just gone through the speed gate at 254mph when the wind caught me. I was still doing around 220 and it made me sit up in the saddle and in less than a second the bike had got onto the grass.

    "It was a very bumpy ride - and I knew it was going to end in pain. I managed to keep the bike upright but I was still doing around 90mph when the bike finally dug into the dirt and spat me off."
  7. Haha - I got 'edited' for a naughty combination of letters. Pity the people who actually live there.

  9. This caught my attention:

    "But thanks to armour-plating inside her racing suit, the 46-year-old IT analyst escaped with a broken ankle, severe bruising and a whiplash injury to her neck."

    I don't want any of that amour plating.
