Posted: September 11, 2017 at 3:19 pm   /  

It’s early 2011 and a 31 year-old me is on the BMW K1600GT launch in South Africa. I lucked out when the launch dates clashed with a family holiday for the then editor, and found myself on what we like to call ‘a grown up launch’. Long haul, luxurious and lazy, I was handed the keys […]

Ten minutes with Kevin Schwantz. An interview.

Posted: September 9, 2017 at 11:01 am   /  

Kevin Schwantz needs little introduction, he is a legend of the two-stroke GP era. We caught up with him at Silverstone for a chat about hire cars, whether any MotoGP racer could win a BSB title and which was harder, Rossi winning on two and four strokes or Spencer winning on 250 and 500s.

Posted: September 9, 2017 at 9:08 am   /  

Pinned in fourth gear, I urge myself to tip into turn one without rolling the throttle from the stop, lap after lap I’ve dared myself and bottled it. This time, I nail it. I’m flat out on a Suzuki GSX-R at Silverstone, just days before Alex Rins was doing exactly the same thing as me […]

Posted: August 9, 2017 at 3:19 pm   /  

The Triumph Street Cup is, among many other things, a throwback to original cafe racer culture.

Honda Ron Haslam Race School – Review.

Posted: August 9, 2017 at 1:22 pm   /  

“Donington” was the answer I got when I asked Leon Haslam, tongue-in-cheek, which UK track is his favourite.
