Michael Neeves, 24 June 2011 09:48

Suzuki's GSX-R1000 will get you round the TT at 125mph+ no problem. But that fancy feather-light race bodywork you've been hankering after? It could cost infinitely more time than it saves, says Relentless Suzuki by Tas boss, Philip Neill, as he talks us through how they prepare Guy Martin’s Superstock gixxer for the TT. "Frequently round here you see things ...

MRO Powerbike blog: Silverstone 18/19 June 2011

Michael Neeves, 22 June 2011 10:11

That was the best weekend’s racing I’ve ever had –three out of three wins (two in the dry, one in the wet). I just scraped the fastest lap of the weekend on Silverstone’s national circuit, ahead of fast-charging Mike Goodfellow on his superstock-spec Carbontek BMW S1000RR and set the lap record for the MRO Powerbike. Strangely, it’s my first ever ...

Michael Neeves MRO Powerbike blog: Brands Hatch GP

Michael Neeves, 23 May 2011 17:30

It’s been a busy old May. I rode my GSX-R750 to Le Mans to watch the MotoGP, tested a Taiwanese 50cc supermoto, carried out a Tuono group test, spent four days at Brands Hatch instructing and racing and then back to the Kent track to test Keith Flint’s new Moto2 bike.

Michael Neeves – MRO Powerbike blog: Rain, crashes and Bemsee Rookie racers.

Michael Neeves, 15 February 2011 10:33

A soggy Brands HatchSince it’s been resurfaced, Brands is super-slippery in the wet and now almost as bad as Donington when the heavens open. The Kent track used to be really grippy and you could set lap times close to your dry pace and get a serious lean-on (check out the picture of my old R1 at Brands, taken a ...

Inside Vyrus: the epicentre of hub-centre

Michael Neeves, 03 August 2010 15:28

Praise the lord for biking heroes like Ascanio Rodrigo and his company Vyrus. Based in Rimini, the very heartland of the Italian motorcycle industry, Vyrus create high-tech, one-off, hand-built motorcycles that are unapologetically impractical, unconventional and expensive. The latest is the Ducati 1198R-powered 987. For most of us a Vyrus is an irrelevance, but the world would be a far ...
