Yamaha YXZ1000R – Thorney motorsport review.

Posted: May 19, 2016 at 11:12 am   /   Product Reviews, Slider Home

Slow in, fast out. An age-old adage that racers and bank robbers have stuck to since time began. There’s a very simple reason why people apply this rule, it’s because it works. On two wheels, only the fearless and the stupid would try and get round a corner in any other way. Unfortunately for me […]

Rossi Replica AGV – Winter test edition.

Posted: April 12, 2016 at 10:38 pm   /   Product Reviews, Slider Home

Rossi replica helmets have to be up there as the most desirable of all the race replica lids. Some are now viewed as a bit of an investment, as long as you haven’t stunk it up with your helmet hair. New for 2016 is this, the ‘Winter test’ version of the stunning AGV Pista GP. […]

Bridgestone S21 review – What my mate thinks.

Posted: April 10, 2016 at 1:02 pm   /   Product Reviews, Slider Home

When it comes to taking bike related advice, lots of people seem to go to ‘my mate’. My mate knows absolutely everything about everything, apparently. He’s wheelied further than Rothwell and had his knee down longer than a toy soldier. Has ridden through more winters than Father Christmas and has ridden more bikes than he […]

GPR Thunder Slash can on Suzuki GSX-S1000 S

GPR Thunder Slash dual silencer fit on 2015 Suzuki GSX-S1000 S

Posted: March 4, 2016 at 11:08 pm   /   Blogs, Product Reviews, Staff Bikes

  We’re fans of GPR pipes here at SB – they make a good-looking exhaust at a decent price, with a wide range of styling options and noise levels, plus they generally do okay on power as well. So we gave the firm’s Thunder Slash end can a runout on our long term Suzuki GSX-S1000 S, and […]

Michelin Pilot Road 4 tyres on Suzuki GSX-S1000 F

Posted: February 21, 2016 at 9:37 pm   /   Blogs, Product Reviews, Staff Bikes

  Winter’s almost over (isn’t it?) – and we’ve been trying out some proper bad-weather rubber on the mighty Suzuki GSX-S1000 F. Michelin’s Pilot Road range has been one of the go-to choices for all-round riders for years now, particularly the ‘3’ version. The PR3 as it became known won many a rider’s heart for […]

SW Motech Blaze Pannier fit on GSX-S1000 F

Posted: January 4, 2016 at 10:45 am   /   Blogs, Product Reviews, Staff Bikes, Uncategorized

Suzuki is very keen to stress that the new GSX-S1000 is very much a sporty naked bike. It’s nothing at all like a certain, SX-y,  Z-list bike from Competitor ‘K’, the nice PR man tells me, on a regular basis. Oh no. Nope. This is all well and good – it’s their bike after all. […]

Suzuki GSX-S1000 F Dynojet Power Commander fit – results.

Posted: November 29, 2015 at 4:57 pm   /   Product Reviews, Staff Bikes

  So I’ve spent the last few weeks riding round on the GSX-S1000 after it had the Dynojet Power Commander fitted. And what a difference… Dynojet UK boss Frank Wrathall got the bike collected, took it up to Cumbria and fitted the PC, before mapping it with the Remus pipe in place. As I said […]

Suzuki GSX-S1000 Fuelling Graphs

Posted: October 27, 2015 at 9:29 pm   /   Blogs, Product Reviews, Staff Bikes

Emissions Scandal!   No, we’re not talking about VW cars belching out masses of nitrous oxides. Rather, the effect of Euro emissions regs on our long term GSX-S1000 F. We’ve been speaking to the good guys at Dynojet UK, about getting a Power Commander fitted to our bike. They’ve been working hard at developing a […]
