Staff Blog: To Jet Wash or Not to Jet Wash?

Alison Silcox, 25 September 2013 09:50

  I lent my bike to a colleague last week for the MCN Awards ride out and after an awfully wet ride down to the venue in Dorking, followed by a couple of hours riding through the Surrey Hills, the bike was returned looking very second hand. I’m not one for jet-washing but it seemed the only option to get ...

Staff Blog: A Week of Two Wheels but not the Motorised Kind!

Alison Silcox, 20 September 2013 18:03

  I’ve not turned a wheel on the Yamaha Fazer8 for the last couple of weeks. Instead of being power assisted I’ve been producing my own power and cycled, along with a group of ten family and friends, from Dublin to Galway and back. We had a brilliant holiday, with plenty of hills to conquer, I’m sure Ireland must be ...

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 ...

Yamaha's eagerly awaited new three-cylinder roadster is currently being put through its paces by MCN Senior Road Tester Michael Neeves.

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: ...
