Tell us about it: I’d always been into bikes and often went out as a pillion. I didn’t pass my test until I was 40 and can honestly say it’s definitely one of the best things I ever did. Riding my bike is a total mind clearance, and I’ve met some fantastic people through it. My first machine was a Monster, and I wanted to stay with Ducati as I love the brand and the V-twin. The 750 has all the power I need and there are no surprises with it. My favourite thing about it is the noise – there’s no doubt that people can hear me coming! I like to ride out to Willingham woods, Squires and to the coast for fish and chips. As long as there’s a brew at the end of the journey I don’t mind where I go!
