Sir: Your small piece on motorcycling - 'Cut through the jams and beat the train' - in today's report on the Motor Show, leads me to hope that the Independent will be giving as much space to the International Motorcycle Show at the National Exhibition Centre next week. I can confirm the views of Findlay Macpherson (that a motorcycle is by far the best means of transport for everyday journeys to work, and not only in London), and what's more it is still fun. Although riding in the wet is less amusing, it is surprisingly unusual for rain to be falling during the journey.
