A PAIR of daredevil brothers hope to break the landspeed world record for riding a motorbike while blindfolded. Brian and Colin Eadie will attempt to ride at 89.9mph (around 145kmph?).

The stunt at an airfield in Yorkshire is in aid of the British Blind Sport charity.

Brian, 38, said they wanted to attempt the challenge as it seemed really unusual. He said: 'I've never done anything for charity before but this is a fantastic challenge.'

Around 20 people will try to beat the record in September.

I'ts great having someone on the forum thats up with all the biker news and it's always interesting to hear whats going on back home.....
But, my problem is your reporting style (very informative and lots of facts) is say the equiverlent (sp?) to "The Observer" (newspaper) and i for one would much prefer if you could change it to say the "Sunday Sport".
You know the sort of thing
"Blonde biker babes bare all" With pics of course!
And "Elvis seen riding TZR125 on moon"
Cheers

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO O!

Or to put it another way, I couldn't do it, even if I tried! I think my old english teacher - not to mention my journalism tutor - would have my guts for garters!

Apart from that, are you going to provide me with the legal team the 'Sport' has in place? I'd need it if I did their kind of 'reporting'!

I don't fancy my last headline being 'Pom Newshound brings down internet forum with massive lawsuit following dodgy report' :eek5:

Look on the bright side - you guys are getting this lot for nothing. Back here, people actually have to PAY to get this stuff!

Which is part of the reason for the 'dry' style... I' m writing this stuff up all for the paying customer, so I have to get it all done, submit copy and then sort out what goes in here... this takes me AGES to do, let alone try to write in different styles!

Come to think of it, I'm not sure I can write in another style - its taken me years to get this one where it needs to be, let alone develop another one!

I know my limits...
