Has Christmas left you with nothing but a bigger waistline, less money and a fading hangover? Well we have the cure (sort of).
What you need to do is buy a stunning cheap thriller, and ride the wheels off it. This will clear your head and help you lose weight. Sadly it won’t help the bank balance, but at least our headline offerings are a whole £10,000 cheaper than the latest crop of litre sportsbikes. So go crazy, and buy two.
There’s even a free sticker sheet on this issue to help cover up those inevitable little nicks and grazes you get on any used bike.
What are you waiting for – get down the shops!
So what’s in the issue then?
