    It's better to be thought stupid than open your mouth and remove all doubt

    Pure speed in sixth gear on a 5,000 foot straightaway is one thing, but pure speed in third gear on a gravel-strewn, downhill, ess turn is quite another.

        A tragedy on so many levels is Kim Newcombe's story. Rod Tingate still has Kim's Konig, he only just started taking about it again.
