We all like to save a shilling if we can, especially these days, but sometimes, doing a job yourself, cutting corners and generally grubbing round being tight fisted actually ends up costing you more money than biting the bullet and putting your hand a bit deeper into your pocket...
I didn't realise how much I had missed riding at Donington Park over the past eleven months until I reaquainted myself with what is still one of the world's best circuits last weekend. There is nothing like a fix of Craner Curves and the Old Hairpin to make you smile, especially ...
This picture of me chasing Foggy on the Daytona banking in 1991 brought back some bitter sweet memories recently. I did half a season as his team mate on the Silkolene RC30s before scurrying off to Japan to ride a factory Yamaha Superbike. I’ve never been a quitter but I felt the...

My real worry was that the gearbox had lunched itself after my highside. The rear wheel wasn't moving, even with the clutch in. The less costly option was that the selector fork arm had taken a knock as a result of the shaft hitting the deck. Turns out, on this occasion, my luck ...
At the end of last season when Rick Hackett agreed to fettle my 848, I'm not sure he was prepared for the huge influx of riders to the championship in 2012. Up from around 20 to 35 - quite a few of them dumped their bike up at JHP late in the day, kind of like I did. Sorry.Well R...
