Oh dear, the irony was lost in translation.

I would like to state for the interweb record:

'I, Maverick of Worcestershire, was not in anyway considering buying this bike, I made a foolish off the cuff sarcastic comment and have now been berated for it. For that, I am truely, truely sorry'

Endex.
