Wine journalism has led me to experience new modes of transport. This year I've had my first helicopter ride (in Switzerland), my first balloon ride (in Australia) and now, not quite as glamorously, I've just been invited to take my first ride on a proper motorbike (my previous powered two wheel experiences have been on a Yahama 70 cc moped). Should I accept this offer or not?

Why not - it looks great and a stylish way to arrive - although I would check the forecast first!

Hard to say. As a biker myself, I know that if you have to sit on the back of a motorbike, it may be very scary, especially on a sport red bike like this one on the picture...

Go for it you mug!! Have done this myself a couple of times,although used to own high powered motorbikes for many years,so used to the thrill.
Wimps need not apply ha ha.

By the way,Jamie.Virgin have been offering this service free to their club class passengers for years.
It is very convenient, if want a quick trip into the City,from Heathrow and do not have much baggage!!
Otherwise,I think the cost is about 55 or so,for normal punters.

In the end, I didn't take the ride, for purely practical reasons.
