'm not sure. It's certainly very busy, and comparisons with Benelli's TnT will be unavoidable, while the under-slung exhaust will doubtless be referred to as 'Buell-style'. One thing is for sure, it's hard to ignore the ER-6. From the metallic anodised chassis
Age is a curious thing. You can't hear it, and you can't see it, but one day you wake up and realise all breakfast show DJs are wankers and the country's gone to pot because New Labour are a bunch of low-class liars.I also came to the staggering conclusion that, at 34, I rather l...
Anyone who knows anything about off-road bikes knows Honda's CRF450 motocrosser is horrifically fast and entirely frightening to ride. Two laps of a track on one is enough to pump your forearms solid and turn your legs to jelly, and the slightest twitch of throttle at the wrong t...
Rain like you can’t believe. Horizontal slabs of thick, juicy water, drops as big as Subbuteo footballs, rain so heavy that it makes you laugh out loud at the insanity of it all and you can’t see 30ft in front of you. It’s pitch dark at 6pm and the traffic on the M4 is sloshing t...
If you'd given me the option in 1939 of which side I'd have fought on during the war, it would have had to be Germany. It's a terrible admission, I know, and one that my family would be mortified by (we come from a long line of jingoistic, flag-waving duffers who furthered Britai...

't really have a chance, 350kgs of bike and rider finding bedrock and grinding their way up anything.Being boring, I've decided to keep the Adventure completely stock. I fitted a full exhaust system last year that, although saving some 7kgs in weight
long way. If, on the other hand, you’re on a 10 year-old Kawasaki ZX-7R with a tiny plate, an ear-shattering exhaust and you’re wearing trainers and a stolen Arai, well you’re screwed already.
sports tools are heavier, uglier and in some cases even slower than their preceding brethren. With catalysers choking the exhausts and people with decibel-readers demanding less noise than ever before, manufacturers are pulling their hair out trying
them a bit of life. I've ordered a Tri-Oval Yoshimura exhaust can for the bike (the standard exhaust can is huge, round and kills the engine sound stone dead) and will be shipping the R1 off down to bodywork specialists Dynamite in Bournemouth to clean
