From the comfort of my couch, I like nothing more than watching factory racers strangling the throttles factory superbikes, usually at the point in […]

Triumph Street Cup – Full review with video.

Posted: Monday 30 January 2017 at 14:33 PM / Slider Home

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 […]

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 […]
