The accompanying photo, as more astute readers will readily recognise, shows a bit of a motorcycle.

And a bit of wall with a sign on it, obviously.

For a chance to win a share in our top prize of a FREE* lifetime’s subscription to Bankstone News, simply identify the motorcycle model in question and explain, in words of no more than three syllables, why anyone in their right mind (or Bankstone MD Dinsmore Thighstrap) would be riding it.

Answers please on an old-style £5 note to

If you don’t get it straight away, don’t worry. It doesn’t mean you’re some kind of a moron or anything.

Although you might be, for all Bankstone News knows (which, as we have surely already demonstrated beyond reasonable doubt, is remarkably little).

Plus: we’ll be publishing additional teaser images of different parts of the bike each week until somebody gets it right.



What our clients say about us

Jo was friendly while still professional. She answered any questions and was patient and happy to help. Next steps and cover confirmation could have been a bit clearer. I've had calls from credit hire that I was expecting for replacement bike but they were pushing to do repairs. I was told this would be done by an approved repair. I called just after 9am to notify a claim and was told I would receive a call back within 10 to 15mins. I had to call back an hour later as no one had called back. The lady who answered, Jo, did deal with things straight away and was very helpful
