More complicated than many non bikers may think
Saturday morning was a stonker wasn’t it? A group of us ranging from neighbours, brothers, mates and girlfriends got up and headed down to the coast for a spot of bacon and eggs.
We had a real diverse selection or bikes actually with a GSX1400, XJR1300, Triumph Speedmaster, MT01, A Yamaha R1 ... Continue reading
DOHC, 50bhp, cable operated brakes: what's going on?
NO, IT'S NOT but we thought you'd like a shufti at this: a 1968 MV 600 4.
Looking more BMW than MV Agusta, the forty-two-year-old 600 features a gorgeous sandcast DOHC inline four engine, shaft drive, cable-operated front disc brakes and some rather bizarre styling.
Make: MV AgustaModel: 600Start Year: ... Continue reading
Jon Urry enjoys alternative transportation to new Yamaha launch
THAT, MY FRIENDS, is our test rider's transportation to the 2010 Yamaha FZ8 launch in Marseille.
Today, Jon Urry will endure 700 miles in a bazzed-up Ford Transit with other UK bike journalists, thanks to the infamous cloud of volcanic ash that's turning our skies a worrying shade of crystal-clear blue.
So check ... Continue reading
Clocked over five thousand miles in the Ranger, lugging bikes to track events, back to importers and dealers, that sort of thing. It’s freeing up, especially the suspension. I can drink a cup of coffee now without inhaling it. The engine’s quieter and freer revving now, too.
We had possibly our most ... Continue reading

Er, we don't think so
CHECK THIS: the poster of this video on YouTube is asking if the machine in the clip is an ex-Valentino Rossi Honda NSR500 GP racer.
Although, the bike looks the part, we doubt it's a 'missing' Valentino two-stroker. We weren't even aware the nine-time world champ had lost one!
Any NSR experts fancy ... Continue reading
Norwegian safety video with macabre message
THIS IS Norway's latest road safety video that's aimed at reminding the country's car drivers that motorcyclists are more than just bugs.
We're not quite sure what useful message is contained in the clip. It's seems to be aiming to use pointless shock tactics, which don't really work.
Much easyer than it looks!
We don’t get the manuals with our long term bikes and I didn’t want swallow my pride and ask triumph how to adjust the chain on the Speed Triple.
For the life of me I couldn’t figure it out. The single side swing arm with centrally mounted disk is a work of ... Continue reading
Green laner? Watch this

No lane markings and no speed limits mean many trails are pretty much a free-for-all, especially out in the Texan wilderness. It's all too easy to think you and your mates are the only riders on the trail.
Let's ... Continue reading
