Stereophonics guitarist chooses Suzuki b-king

Stereophonics guitarist Richard Jones, took delivery of a brand-new Suzuki B-King muscle bike last week, just in time to appreciate the use of two wheels on National Ride to Work Day, taking place tomorrow (Wednesday 16th July).

The bass guitarist, from the legendary Welsh rock group, decided on the 1340cc Suzuki B-King for his regular trips through London to the recording studio and record company after falling for its futuristic styling and impressive performance.

Talking about the B-King, Jones, who has owned numerous bikes over the years commented, "I’m delighted with the B-King. It looks out of this world and despite its imposing size and power it’s actually incredibly easy to ride. I’ve been using it to get to the recording studio, and it’s dramatically dropped my journey times across town compared to the car, while being great fun too."

As well as riding the B-King while he’s working in the UK, Jones will next be appearing on stage in the B-King’s homeland of Japan, as the Stereophonics play in Tokyo next week, before a return to the UK at the V Festival next month.

National Motorcycle Week Info:

National Motorcycle Week is the annual campaign that demonstrates to the public, media and politicians the importance and popularity of motorcycling in the UK, and emphasises the important point that owners are from all walks of life and that riding has social, environmental and economic benefits.

Motorcycles and scooters are a really good way to avoid traffic, saving time, money and unnecessary stress and they generally produce far lower greenhouse gases than other motorised vehicles.

Ride to Work Day on 16th July is the day when all bike and scooter owners are encouraged to ride to work and, if they can, take a friend or colleague with them. The day will highlight that motorcycling cuts congestion, pollution, journey times and is convenient and flexible.
