I think they got really surprised at the nationwide responses they got. I imagine their email server got toasted! I sent one to them, as did very many others here, and I am sure on many other motorcycle web groups also.

Glad it worked!

Should have gotten a butt whopping on the way out the door. Then put him on a Likker Sickle (moped) for 6 months.

Not just nationwide, but International. I showed the article to a number of friends here in the UK and some of us mailed the paper too with our 2 cents ( 2 New Pence actually) worth.

Nice to hear he's now looking for work, Maybe someone could offer him a motorcycle courier job.
