A real shame and I bet its related to budget cuts 8-)

EDIT
Looks to me like the UK services are trying to push out the motorcycle as old hat
ARMY top brass were blasted for disbanding the world famous “white helmets” motorcycle stunt team after chiefs decided it was too old-fashioned.
They are due to be replaced with a stunt display team to reflect the modern work carried out by the Royal Signals, it is claimed.

Get in there Don and make them a bulk-buy bid for all their old bikes.

Make a killing - "Yes Sir, genuine one owner machines, with a full service history etc etc etc"

Hopefully this will work and it should be Cpl Mal Cooper Wheelieing into history with the last ever trick of the White Helmets.
I believe that he has been given his Bike.

A moving ride through Blandford (where our factory is) last week and lots of us went down to watch, loads of fond memories for a lot of people here
