Seemed like a top bloke, let that young lad (attempt) to ride it by the pavilion. Stalled it 3 times in a row!

attempt !!!

you pratt TC... that kid stalled it 2-3 times... it was his first time riding a rocker converted mouse trap.. yep thats a suicde and jockey, it aint called that for nothing... within 5 minutes he was tear arsing about like he'd been riding it forever.... show some respect and give the kid some credit... after all you only passed your f'kin test a coupla months ago.... think about it !!!!

Chill out Rowan, wasn't doing the guy down, more that Eric was impressive to ride a tricky bike like that and beat everything else.
