We "stroke" the engine. We "stoke" the fire.

And just how subjective is "demonstrating a responsible attitude"? God save the Queen.

"The MCIÂ’s Director of Public Affairs said, "The MCI supports initiatives that help to make roads safer and young people more aware of risks."



Well, duh! What else are they gonna say? "We oppose any initiative to make the roads safer." or "We don't care how many riders get whacked."



Although this line is interesting: The proposal is being considered in light of the statistics which show that young male drivers aged 17 to 20 are almost ten times more likely to be killed or suffer serious injury behind the wheel compared to men between 40 and 59.



Drivers? Car stats? What does that have to do with motorcycles? Can we ever get a news article without screwy data?
