Yamaha YXZ1000R – Thorney motorsport review.

Posted: Thursday 19 May 2016 at 11:12 AM / Product Reviews

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 […]

Bridgestone S21 review – What my mate thinks.

Posted: Sunday 10 April 2016 at 13:02 PM / Product Reviews

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 […]

Posted: Friday 04 March 2016 at 23:08 PM / Product Reviews

  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 […]

  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.

SW Motech Blaze Pannier fit on GSX-S1000 F

Posted: Monday 04 January 2016 at 10:45 AM / Product Reviews

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. […]

  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 […]

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 […]
