I've just come across this. Not motorcycle related I know, but highlights the BBC bias we suffer on programmes like this.

There was a Q&A in the back of last month's magazine where the woman interviewed hated the noise of off road bikes.
Never mind she had two houses, one in London and one in Dorset so she would have to drive between them every time. She also flew to and from the US frequently so she is polluting with emissions and noise every time she takes a flight.
Hypocrisy, hypocrisy.

By the way, I thought that piece was about managing wild fires and how to stop them (unless it was veiled).

Countryfile does seem to think that the only vehicles in the countryside are farm stuff, pick ups or quads.
