Rare Honda VFR750Rs meet up for a chin wag
A cluster of original RC30s on display at the Intermot show in Germany.
The one in the middle had a square headlight, not the dual round ones we're used to. From a quick search, it appears that's what the Swiss got and frankly, they can keep it. It looked exactly like an ... Continue reading

Does it work?
Spotted this Aprilia RSV4 showing off its fancy new paintjob. I'm guessing it's based on the Jeff Koons M3 GTS that raced at Le Mans in 2010, pictured right.
I love the car, the paint makes it look like it's going at 150mph even when it's standing still.
But on the bike, I ... Continue reading
Educational mid-ninties TV...
IN A slightly bizarre turn of events, a young Eamonn Holmes turns to Carl Fogarty and Aaron Slight to explain the science getting your knee down. Filmed for forgotten mid-ninties BBC program 'How Do They Do That?', this explanatory video is actually a very good watch. Some great 'vintage' hair for ... Continue reading

Fashion-house take on Monster actually better looking in the flesh.
When I first heard about the Ducati/Diesel collaboration, I was expecting a laughable Grayson Perry-style bike - one that no biker would ever want to buy.

Seeing it in the flesh; I changed my ... Continue reading
...do riders of 'big' bikes come any shorter?
In the distance was a GSX-R600 riding itself. As I got closer, I realised it was actually being ridden by a small person. A very small person. A very very small person.
I pulled up next to them at the lights and said "How tall are you?!" to which the lady riding ... Continue reading
Non-smoker seeks attention
Motorcycle manufacturers love acronyms, especially Suzuki. But for me Honda's CBR will now just stand for one thing. Croatian Burns Rubber.
US biker's mono captured by earth-mapping search giant
What do you do when you see the Google StreetView car in your neighbourhood? You fire up your motorcycle and pop a wheelie past it. At least, that's what one guy did in Lemoyne Drive, Louisiana.
Pictured on a Suzuki DRZ-400, you can see the stunt here.
As an aside: the guys ... Continue reading
