British Pop Stars on Two Wheels

Two members of British pop supergroup Steps have discovered the fun and practicality of getting around town on bikes...

Steps, who have enjoyed eight top ten hits since their first single in 1997, sold more albums in the UK last year than any other band and have sold four million albums and seven million singles around the world.
Band member Lee Latchford Evans already has passed his motorcycle test and now owns a Honda CBR600F.

"I don't use my Honda for outright speed though!" said 25-year-old Lee. "It's nice to know the power's there if you want it, but the CBR is just a great machine for getting around London and visiting my parents in Chester whenever I get the time."

His Steps colleague, Faye Tozer, also 25, is planning to take her compulsory basic training before moving on to the full motorcycle test as soon as she is able.

"I'm really jealous of Lee," says Faye, from Northampton. "I can't wait to pass my test and get a bigger bike. I love scooters though and I think I'll get around on one of those in the meantime to get as much experience as I can."
