Posted: April 26, 2017 at 3:34 pm   /  

We caught up with a stack of IOM TT racers at the recent press launch on the Island. It’s an event that we enjoy every year. It gives the kind of access to riders that MotoGP journalists and fans could only dream of. We stuck the same three questions to each rider, the answers were […]

2017 BMW RnineT Racer – review.

Posted: April 26, 2017 at 2:28 pm   /  

I got drunk with Roland Sands once. Not just a little bit tipsy, I mean properly fucked. We got chatting at a BMW festival in Austria and hit it off. One minute we were talking about the time he replaced an injured John McGuinness in the British 250cc championship, the next we were necking belt […]

2017 Yamaha R6 – Full review.

Posted: March 28, 2017 at 4:32 pm   /  

MotoGP looks, Moto2 handling – the new R6 reminds us why 600cc supersports bikes are so much fun. It’s been ten years since Yamaha last gave the R6 any serious updates. You’d think that would leave it miles behind the competition, but that’s far from the case. In truth, the popularity of the 600cc supersports […]

After just making the flight to Nice by under 3 minutes thanks to London’s tubular network being as reliable as an unloved Mobylette, I arrived for the press launch of Ducati’s Monster 797 expecting an evening of convivial hospitality followed by a day’s riding in sunshine along The Corniches. Instead we dumped bags, slipped into […]

Triumph Street Scrambler – Full review with video.

Posted: March 3, 2017 at 11:20 am   /  

Right, I’ve set myself the goal of writing this entire launch report without once mentioning the words ‘heritage’, ‘retro’, ‘old school’ ‘hipster’ or Steve McQueen. I think I can do it and, more to the point, I think the Triumph Street Scrambler deserves more of your attention than to be immediately placed in the same […]

A standard S1000RR and a standard pre TC GSX-R 1000. Same rider, same track and same day.

Does traction control actually make you faster? GSX-R vs S1000RR

Posted: February 22, 2017 at 3:58 pm   /  

How much quicker does traction control make the average rider, if at all? Take one rider, a Suzuki GSX-R1000 and a BMW S1000RR, an empty track and let’s find out shall we? From the comfort of my couch, I like nothing more than watching factory racers strangling the throttles factory superbikes, usually at the point in […]
