Sad to hear the news of the passing of the great racing driver Sir Sterling Moss. I believe that in his later years he used a Vespa in London to travel between properties he owned, saying it was quicker than a car, and he could carry building materials such as bags of plaster on the floor between his feet.

Classic upright driving style behind the wheel. RIP.

If you're going to mention his passing you might want to spell his name right.

It's spelt Stirling.

It's OK. People spell my real name wrong all the time.

I think the new Benelli 500 is called a Leoncino, not a Risotto.

It says he got a Leoncino next to his name. I just grabbed his last statement to get his attention.

The Leoncino is sitting in the dealership awaiting my collection.

I'm just waiting for a date to collect it.

Doing the final paperwork on Tuesday.
