Posted: February 11, 2017 at 2:15 pm   /   New bike news, Slider Home

  A new Suzuki GSX-R1000 with 202hp? 2017 is winning already. 16 years after the first GSX-R1000 rocked our world, Suzuki once again has a GSX-R1000 ready to challenge for top superbike honours. We took to the fast turns of Phillip Island to see if the new bike could live up to the legacy of […]

Posted: February 6, 2017 at 7:38 pm   /   Race News, Slider Home

When a live stream is happening in Hangar7, you can expect a sugary rush of excitement. Nothing had us prepared for the in your face fizz of the 2017 Honda Fireblades that were unveiled there today though. Wearing full Red Bull warpaint, the new bikes look absolutely stunning. Nicky Hayden and Stefan Bradl can sleep […]

Triumph Street Cup

Triumph Street Cup – Full review with video.

Posted: January 30, 2017 at 2:33 pm   /   Bike Tests, New bike news, Slider Home

You could be forgiven for passing off the Triumph Street Cup as a budget version of the Thruxton, but that’s not really the intention from Triumph, apparently. The Street Cup forms one of three strands of DNA in the Modern Classic range. Essentially, if it starts with the word ‘Street’ you’re looking at a bike […]

2017 Honda CBR1000 Fireblade – Initial thoughts

Posted: January 22, 2017 at 3:44 pm   /   New bike news, Slider Home

The 2017 Honda Fireblade. Even rolling the words around my mouth feels good. It’s been such a long time since we were treated to an all new Fireblade that I think I can be forgiven for getting a little excited at the notion of riding the new RR and SP versions this weekend at Portimao. […]

2017 Triumph Bonneville Bobber. Full review with video.

In 1987 my dad took me to our local NAAFI in Germany to buy a new television. The NAAFI was a shop for soldiers where you could buy pretty much anything. Four hours later we pulled up outside our flat in a brand new car*. My dad, scratching his head but happy, had clearly gone […]

2017 Yamaha MT-09. Full review and video.

Posted: December 6, 2016 at 1:36 pm   /   New bike news, Slider Home

I’m not sure why Superbike agreed to let me go to Mallorca for three days to ride the revised for 2017 Yamaha MT-09, but I’m glad they did. My first ever bike launch as a journalist and for me, a chance to ride something that’s sole focus isn’t to go as fast as it possibly […]

It’s 05:06 in the morning and I can’t sleep. I give up trying and pad across my hotel room, scratching my balls while I try to remember where the toilet is. On the way back to a bed I sneak a peak through the curtains, wondering what the day will bring while I ponder a […]

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 […]

Were the Police going to use a Stinger to stop a motorbike?

Posted: August 31, 2016 at 9:25 am   /   Blogs, Slider Home

The Oakdene Cafe in Kent is a popular destination for bikers. Mid week in the summer, a couple of hundred bikes is normal. Obviously where there are bikes and bikers, there are Police. We’ve covered the relationship between the cops and bikers plenty over the years and we understand the need to have them, as […]
