First ride: 2013 KTM Duke 390

Austria's latest hand-grenade gets lobbed at some lovely wet, bumpy, slippery UK roads...

BMW HP4: Niall Mackenzie's verdict

Three-time BSB champ swaps S1000RR for HP4

Like most Superbike fans I have been reading with interest how technically clever the BMW HP4 is and how incredible it is to ride.  And when it was launched last year I had every reason to believe the hype because I’ve covered many miles on standard S1000RRs and they delivered everything BMW ...  Continue reading

Caught in the tail-lights

See object... hit object

There are bikers who don't like cyclists and vice versa, but this one seems to have such an extreme affinity for cyclists, he ploughs straight into them. It's like a high-speed hug gone wild. Luckily no one was seriously injured...
