Staff Blog: The Mirror Cracked!!

Alison Silcox, 15 July 2013 08:18

  Riding out of the work car park the other night I glanced at my mirrors, as I always do, before heading out on the main road to make sure they are in the right position. How gutting to see the left hand mirror had been broken. Someone had obviously given it a good clobber as the glass was cracked ...

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: First long ride (and in the sun, too!)

Simon Patterson, 07 July 2013 15:22

It seems I couldn’t have picked a better time to finally get out on two wheels! The sun’s beaming down, I’m sitting in the press office at Snetterton, and the little Yamaha R125 is parked outside. I’ve made my first decent length run on it to get here, knocking back the 70 miles from Peterborough in just under an hour ...

Staff Blog: How’s that for the ultimate in accessories?

Alison Silcox, 01 July 2013 07:30

  I’m not a slave to fashion and wouldn’t normally be classed as a girlie-girl but as a bit of fun I thought I’d add a little colour coded accessory to my Fazer8, well not exactly to the bike but more to me. The blue wheels and detailing on the bike aren’t to everyone’s taste, at first I thought they ...

Staff Blog: Friday Night is Rideout Night!!!

Alison Silcox, 24 June 2013 07:58

  Following my recent appeal to you lovely blog readers I’ve just spent a cracking weekend riding the Yamaha Fazer8 round North Norfolk visiting some little gems that you recommended. I’m going to be writing a full report in a future issue of MCN so won’t go into too much detail today. However, I will mention the brilliant little bike ...

Staff Blog: Did You Ride to Work Today?

Alison Silcox, 17 June 2013 07:58

It's Ride to Work Day today and after my early morning ride to the office here’s the photo of my Yamaha Fazer8 in the car park at MCN Towers! As you can see there’s only me and a couple of other riders here so far but as the day progresses the bike park will be full of all manner of machines. To celebrate this national ...

Staff Blog: It’s a Family Affair!!

Alison Silcox, 17 June 2013 07:54

  After four and a half long years my other half and I went for our first ride out together over the weekend. Mark was involved in a start-line crash at Brands Hatch when racing his Suzuki SV650 in the Bemsee Minitwin championship. He had a shopping list of injuries and the main one that has impacted his ability to ...

Staff Blog: Thanks for all your suggestions

Alison Silcox, 10 June 2013 11:17

Further to my previous blog I've been really chuffed with the amount of reponses I've received so thank you. My route around North Norfolk is taking shape nicely with the addition of a particularly interesting looking bike meet, a windmill with cafe and some great sounding roads to ride. Following some of your suggestions I've decided to extend the trip to take in ...

  With the sun shining and hopefully continuing to shine for some weeks to come I’m planning to ride as much as I can and need your help. My next planned jaunt is to the North Norfolk coast in a couple of weeks. I’m wanting to visit those little hidden gems, like the meet at Ashby Folville that takes place ...

Staff Blog: I Love Sunny Saturday Rides!

Alison Silcox, 03 June 2013 08:05

  What glorious weather, waking up on Saturday morning with sun streaming through the window I had no excuse but to get out on the Yamaha Fazer8 and ride. My other half was helping mates at the Bemsee round being held at Oulton Park so with that as the destination I set out on my day’s ride. It’s 140 mile ...
