So lets compare the Guzzi 850 T3 68hp 54lbs torque to the V9 engine 55hp 46lbs of torque. Euro4 has cost a lot of power, I wonder if other vendors have lost that many horses.

Why would he join the GCGB forum when he had sold his Griso? But then again....

In his earlier programs I used to find Henry Cole a bit petulant and self pitying when things didn't quite go to plan, the toys arching out of the pram sort of thing. But he is an ardent motorcyclist and increasingly knowledgable, in part thanks to his mate Sam and enviably extensive list of contacts, To be fair it appears he will give anything on two wheels a go.

As for the unlamented and thankfully departed previous member I think he was just a very sad and lonely person who will never be happy.

He does get some stick and, yes, he can come across as a bit of a prat sometimes, but he's out there getting these programmes made and distributed where no-one else is so good on him. 

The other good thing is that he does seem to get his facts about the bikes, cars, etc right.  I don't recall ever having to shout at the telly for him stating some glaring error!
