Is the Aixam Coupe S a Car-Ped or a Mo-Car?
Dunno 'bout you but most of my sixteenth year was spent picking gravel out of my knees.
I think I probably fell of my Fizzie at least once a week. All of it was my fault, of course. That heady combination of invincibility and utter blind faith is part and parcel of ... Continue reading
It's the gears
Been blasting all around the UK on my Crosstourer DCT this summer.
The bike is mega in a Range Rovery-posh and grunty kind of a way. But it’s that engine and gearbox that transcend the normal into new realms of brilliance.
I’ve been doing my best not to bore people too much about DCT ... Continue reading
Nipped along to Donington yesterday. It was a round of the Classic Racing Motorcycle Club series and the Yamaha historic collection was there, too. Gate price of £15 seemed a bit salty at first but I have to say, it was justified by the close racing and massive variety of machinery ... Continue reading
Project TTF2 rumbles back into life
I needed a rear shock for a TTF2 project bike I’m building. But what to buy?
Bearing in mind this bike houses a prehistoric Ducati Pantah engine in a steel tube frame and sits on 18in wheels, was spending six or seven hundred quid-plus on a full spec race unit worth the ... Continue reading
No, it's mint, actually
Picked up my long-term-test DCT Crosstourer last week from Honda HQ near Heathrow.
British people might like to notice that this was one of the days this ‘summer’ where the sun was shining. It’s not photoshop and it’s not artificial lighting. It’s that sun thing.
But the moment I lined the front wheel ... Continue reading
Step forward Malaguti
First the Sym Fiddler and now the Malaguti Dribbling (cheers, Sticky).
And if you dont believe us, here's a copy of the original advert as cast-iron proof.
Well, at least they're memorable...
Anyone fancy a Fiddle?
Spotted this feller on the streets of Nice last week. It's a Sym scooter called a Fiddle, or in this case, it's the revamped Fiddle 2 - a far superior model to the original Fiddle.
Can you suggest any apt Fiddle owners?
An experience never forgotten
To be honest I had my doubts. The the very thought of off-roading 260kgs of Super Tenere adventure bike fostered strong feelings of self preservation. Was this really a good idea?
The Yamaha Tenere experience is run by a Welsh family who need little introduction if you already know your biking onions. ... Continue reading
Spent the best part of Wednesday with Ian Hutchinson over at the Isle of Man. He (and me) and a host of others were over there for the TT press launch (26th May - 6th June). It was a good event, made even better by beautiful weather. Hard to believe that ... Continue reading
Journalist's project bike makes progress, shocker
Remember the Enigma Triumph being built by a collective of British engineeers and specialists?
Just been dropped a note by the bike's owner - know on these parts as JimLin. Inexplicaby, for a journalist's 'project', things still appear to be moving ahead at a healthy velocity. Jim has also been fairly busy ... Continue reading
