Initial impressions of Suzuki's adventure-styled tourer
I'VE spent the last couple of months riding Suzuki’s V-Strom 1000, my long termer for the year.

Only the rarest or rare machines make it into the legendary bike collection of American collector EJ Cole, so it’s no surprise to see that some went for insane money.
While none managed to ... Continue reading
But not necessarily for the right reasons
WE can’t quite put our finger on what drew our attention to the eBay listing for this ‘stunning bike’. Is it the double bubble screen? The upside fork legs? The Battlax swinging-arm?
‘Please messages only about the bike,’ the seller says, ‘the girl is not for sale.’
