A motorized bike

Over recent years I’ve mentioned the FT’s “How to Spend It” Magazine (and app) to most students as a way to glimpse into the world of the rich. The world where the oft used slogan generally applies “if you have to ask the price then you cannot afford it” (usually attributed to John Pierpoint Morgan (aka JP Morgan) (1837 -1913) and a conversation about yachting – one of his “boats”:(Photo taken by Edwin Levick (US Naval Staff) and thus in the public domain by virtue of the under US Constitution. (See Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Corsair_(American_Steam_Yacht,_1899).jpg )

Worth a look!
