Staff Blog: Night Riding Fun

Alison Silcox, 09 September 2013 07:30

Is it just me or do your skills sharpen as you ride in the dark and your speed increase? Riding the 50 miles from Silverstone to home the other night I really enjoyed the dark journey. The lights on Yamaha Fazer8 give really good visibility and I noticed that I was using other cars, cats eye and road markings far ...

Staff Blog: Too Many Fazers, Too Little Time

Alison Silcox, 24 August 2013 08:15

I’ve not just been riding the Yamaha Fazer8 this week, for a forthcoming long term feature I’ve been out on my mate’s Yamaha FZS600 Fazer and the big brother of the range the FZ1 Fazer. I was really surprised how easy and comfortable I felt hopping from one bike to the other. Each were quite similar to ride in some ...

Staff Blog: You Can't Beat a Bit of Bike Therapy

Alison Silcox, 17 August 2013 19:26

I've been down in the dumps for the last couple of weeks and I’ve really not felt like going out on the Yamaha Fazer8 but today I thought enough is enough and decided to blow away some cobwebs. The Fazer8 isn’t the most exciting of bikes but the thing with riding any bike is it takes all your concentration and within only a ...

Staff blog: Fourth time lucky!

Simon Patterson, 16 August 2013 16:16

First of all, I need to say thanks for all the emails I've received over the past few days. I've had a ton of comments, tips, suggestions and offers of free training since my piece in Wednesday's paper on failing my mod one test (for the third time). I have to admit to keeping something under my hat (helmet?), though: ...

Staff Blog: Top Box Woes

Alison Silcox, 05 August 2013 08:00

You might have read in my recent long term report, featured in July 24 issue of MCN, about fitting the top box to the Yamaha Fazer8. I’m testing different types of luggage to see which is the easiest to use and which I prefer. So far I’m not overly impressed with the top box. Initially fitting the box the rear ...

Staff Blog: To Flash or Not to Flash?

Alison Silcox, 29 July 2013 08:00

  My hubby and I were riding through the rolling Leicestershire countryside towards Rutland Water on a recent Sunday morning ride when we were flashed twice by oncoming cars but not at all by the oncoming bikes. Being cautious we slowed to just under the speed limit and after about half a mile came upon a sneaky camera van tucked ...

Staff Blog: I Love Wednesdays.....

Alison Silcox, 18 July 2013 08:16

  The lads in the office are bored stiff of hearing me say it but I’m going to say it again, I don’t work Wednesdays and what better way to spend the day than riding the Yamaha Fazer8. Along with a couple of mates and my hubby we planned a 300 miles round trip to a brilliant bike meet. Further to ...
