Staff blog: Back to the CBR

Andy Calton, 08 July 2013 17:41

It was a huge relief to return from the States and get back on the Honda CBR500R. I'd had a fantastic time riding a Harley-Davidson Electra Glide down Route 66 and up the Pacific Coast Highway. But hustling such a big bike loaded up with wife and luggage had taken its toll. On the move it was brilliant but low-speed ...

Staff Blog: Sorting our my saggy-ness

Alison Silcox, 08 July 2013 12:24

  You might have seen my latest long term review published in July 3 issue of MCN. I’ve been having a few issues with my suspension and Senior Road Tester, Michael Neeves, gave me a few tips on how to adjust the front and rear sag on the Yamaha Fazer8. So getting my hands dirty I got to work with a tape ...

Staff blog: Roman Holiday

Anonymous, 05 July 2013 10:08

My ride to Rome is now a distant memory (see MCN July 3) but I'll always have a load of holiday snaps to remind me. Here are some that didn't make it into the paper and also the links to the Google maps for the four day route... Day one, Calais to Reims: http://tiny.cc/79c1ywDay two, Reims to Geneva: http://tiny.cc/qfd1ywDay three, Genava to Genoa: http://tiny.cc/led1ywDay ...

Staff Blog: In search of confidence

Tony Hoare, 24 June 2013 17:56

I’ve started to try and get to the bottom of the confidence issue I reported in the paper last week, which has left me with chicken strips on the Street Triple R’s Pirelli tyres. First step was to order some Dunlop Sportsmart tyres. I’m not blaming my drained  confidence on the standard Pirelli Diablo Corsas - but I’ve never ridden ...

Staff Blog: Black Bikes...

Tim Thompson, 14 June 2013 16:22

I love the idea of black bikes. They're the stealth option. In 2013 black also seems like the sensible choice for a sports bike like the GSX-R750, not so much because it helps you slip unnoticed from the scene of the crime, but because it's like those of us riding them -- a bit older. More grown up than some ...

Michelin v Pirelli

Michael Neeves, 14 June 2013 13:38

I’ve spent this week getting to know the new Pirelli Angel GT tyres I fitted on Monday. I’ve been using my bike for commuting to work and the other day I rode the 320-mile round trip down to Ramsgate and back to see my brother Ben. We took a couple of days off and did a car trackday at the ...

Staff Blog: Please don't kill me

Tony Hoare, 11 June 2013 11:43

Well that was the scariest, most bum-puckery, head-duckery moment I’ve had since I got back on a bike in the Spring. Casually riding south on the A1, thinking about whether to make one more overtake before reaching the exit that leads to the MCN office. Yes, there’s loads of room to pass a dawdling Audi. Check mirror, indicate, aim just ...

Staff Blog: Hyperstrada Tyre Testing

Michael Neeves, 10 June 2013 11:33

I’m working my way through as many new-for-2013 tyres as I can for this year, so I can see what the tyre companies have been up to. With each new generation of tyre, we get more bang for our buck. The new breed keep getting gripper, better in the wet and more durable. I ran the standard Pirelli Scorpion dual ...

Staff Blog: Passports at the ready

Tony Hoare, 07 June 2013 18:14

There’s always a tingle that comes with the thought of riding abroad. And, now the working day is coming to a close, I’m feeling the tingle. The sun’s shining, the TT commentary is piping out of the computer and I’m headed for Belgium on the Street Triple R. It’s not designed for touring, but you can go anywhere on anything ...

Staff Blog: Swings and roundabouts

Richard Newland, 05 June 2013 10:42

Every bike will delight and frustrate you to some extent – it’s an inevitable truth. While touches of pure and simple genius will provide fodder to evangelise to your friends, there will always be those ‘what were they thinking’ facets that tug at the back of your happiness, and which you hope no-one else picks up on. The GS isn’t ...
