TAKE THE smallest and least practical vehicle available in an entire continent and throw it at some of the most ridiculous and least hospitable terrain on our good earth - that's the aim of the Mototaxi Junket.From the driest desert in the world, to the most dangerous road in the...
Picked up our Ford Ranger Wildtrak pickup last week. She’s massive, blue and bestowed with a three-litre turbo diesel engine that’s so torquey you can set off in first gear with no throttle at all. Going to be perfect for humping bikes and people and gear around, that’s fo’ sho’....

Kirkistown, Northern Ireland, early 1988. I love motorbikes me... ’80s hair worth a mention.Me, Andrea and Scott Russell at the WSB end of season party, Hard rock Café, Sentul, Indonesia, 1997. I suspect we’d had a drink or two at this point. Later the biggest food-fight ever in ...
