AGV Pista Project 46 – Ten thousand mile review

Posted: Wednesday 02 September 2015 at 12:58 PM / Product Reviews

That price! It makes my eyes water if I think about it, so I try not to. I have to mention it, though. You can expect to pay around £900 for this Carbon Fibre masterpiece. You’ll find one for less, I’m sure, but that’s the going rate. It’s an awful lot of money, but it […]

Posted: Thursday 30 July 2015 at 11:31 AM / Product Reviews

There are two things I seem to have a continuous struggle to get right when it comes to motorcycling (three if you count getting my elbow down, but we don’t need to talk about that). Gloves that offer the perfect fit for my tiny hands, and headphones that actually work. Over the last ten years […]

Bridgestone T30 EVO – Tyre review

Posted: Wednesday 06 May 2015 at 12:37 PM / Product Reviews

‘Comfortable performance’ was the aim with the new Bridgestone T30 EVO tyre. Bridgestone users asked for rubber that could cope with the demands of sporty touring in wet and dry conditions, a lot to ask of any tyre, I’m sure you’ll agree. With those parameters in mind, if you’re looking for a sticky tyre to […]

Bridgestone Battlax Adventure A40 tyre – Product review

Posted: Monday 27 April 2015 at 13:33 PM / Product Reviews

One important question I wasn’t asked on the launch of the Bridgestone Adventure A40 was “Hey, John, can you actually ride off road?” To which my answer would have been a resolute no. It’s not that I can’t ride off road, more that I don’t really get a chance to and as such, tend to […]

Moto2 chain conversion for tuned 600s – R6, 675 Daytona, ZX-6R

Posted: Tuesday 24 February 2015 at 13:15 PM / Product Reviews

  Of all the high-tech bits on a bike, the final drive chain is probably the most anachronistic. Hundreds of tiny plates, pins, bushes and rollers, all spinning round at high speed? Exposed to the rain, dust, grit and debris off the road? With nothing but a squirt of chain lube now and again to […]

Sepang MotoGP winter test kicks off with traditional garish Rossi helmet presentation

Posted: Wednesday 04 February 2015 at 09:29 AM / Product Reviews

Valentino might not be quite the box-office draw he was back in his pomp, but he’s still the most showbiz of all the big cheeses in MotoGP. And a big part is his long-running helmet paint job saga. Where guys like Mick Doohan or Freddie Spencer stuck to one basic design through their career, Rossi has had […]
