  1. Motorbike ambulances save lives in Uganda

    They get everywhere! (Incidentally, the "Welsh charity" mentioned is one that my place of work collaborates with!)
  2. Choppers

    Seeing pictures of yesterday's sad helicopter crash in Berlin set me thinking. The local poor visibility was surely the main cause of the crash, and as far as I know, the only Aircrew and Choppers rated here for such (IFR) conditions are Military and just maybe (ex services?) police; which...

  7. Air ambulance

    I'm sure you guys know that Ireland is in the process of getting two air ambulances. From what i have heard they have the money to get them but are looking at around £1.5m a year to keep them going. Their aim now is to raise enough money that they can work of the interest, just like the life...
  8. Fast response for AT

    Tony ( not his real name) a mate and fellow XRV rider, was just going up to bed, when he heard a noise in the garden. He looked out of the bedroom window and saw three hooded Scrotes trying to get his AT out of the shed! His first instinct was to rush down and batter the living crap out of them...
