even he'd sweat the transaction. Urry would have to hock one of his LCs and then finance the rest. But for Hogan and JB, now sprogged-up, this is a fantasy exercise. To do this for real they'd need to get a real job with real money - and it'd still
adjective 'bland' but countering that the bikes were just so damn good that they liked them anyway. Riding the CBF, I knew exactly what they meant.Actually, life for the CBF has been a bit pacey recently, relatively speaking. John Hogan launched a set of Leo
The new 2008 HayabusaHOW fitting Suzuki chose Rome as the venue to launch the 2008 Hayabusa - after all, neither were built in a day. Suzuki have made us wait a full nine years for an update on the original 173bhp 194mph heavyweight hypertourer. Time, and the official test launch...
I’m 22 years old and I’m a criminal.I did my bike test when I was 17 but my licence started getting fragile, so I went racing. I spent three years winning races at MRO level, set some lap records and broke some bones. I enjoyed it but it got too expensive. I didn’t want to go bac...
The Rocket III is a fairly scary bike, face it. Trying to unleash 143bhp while sitting in a position similair to the one that labouring women use isn’t exactly the most relaxing way to begin a mid-life crisis. Sales have been strong but not as strong as expected in the US. The Am...
Bikes entered my life when I was about 10. My dad had a mint Z900 and we used to go everywhere on it together. He bought me an old motocross bike and I was hooked. I enjoyed riding it, but as much as riding it, I just enjoyed owning a bike. I raced a bit of schoolboy motocross, d...

Can you buy cool? It’s a valid question. Every time I try to be cool I mess it up. I trip over my own feet, blow smoke in my eyes or dribble beer down my chin. Don’t get me wrong, I’m no geek, but if you have to try then you’ll never really nail the whole Fonzie thing. The Samura...
Preconception: I hope the Haslams like my tribute sideys What I learned: Sideys don't mean squat when you've just crashed in front of two generations of racing leg-endWhen I was 11, I could strip and re-assemble an AK47 in under a minute. Blindfolded. At 13 I could map-read like ...
It’s April 1988. Aswad are number one in the charts, everybody wants a Peugeot 205, Davide Tardozzi has just won some race called World Superbikes and a litre of unleaded costs 37 pence. Being just eight years-old I had different priorities, like Streethawk, doing skids on my BMX...
