BMW G310 R – First ride review.

Posted: September 21, 2016 at 2:20 pm   /   Bike Tests, New bike news, Slider Home

The Bangalore Torpedo! BMW motorcycles are aspirational. You could pin it on Charlie Boorman and Ewan McGregor, you could pin it on Marco Melandri or even Reg Pridmore (look him up). It’s entirely possible that you could pin it on next-door’s five series. However you look at them BMW are undoubtedly a bike (and a […]

Watch my Tracer! Yamaha MT07- First ride review

Posted: July 3, 2016 at 2:02 pm   /   New bike news, Slider Home

The first time I went touring on a bike, I was 22. With a licence that was less than 48 hours old in my pocket, a handful of Pepperamis down my leathers and an army issue sleeping back strapped to the back of my bike, I set of from North Devon heading for Le Mans. […]

On the one hand, they’re proper, grown-up companies, with corporate social responsibility programmes, charity partnerships, and environmental policies.
