Staff Blog: Hello Moto(rrad)

MCN, 29 May 2013 15:44

If you’d told me ten years ago that I’d be ecstatic at the prospect of riding an R1200GS as a longterm test bike, I’d have been breathless with laughter before any sort of verbal response could form on my lips. But back in the here and now, I’m just that – ecstatic. So what’s changed? Well there’s no point pretending ...

Staff Blog: Time for new shoes!

Ian Jubb, 29 May 2013 15:29

Having just clocked up 3000 miles on the RT the rear is starting to square off and with a trip to France looming I figured it's best to get them switched from the OE Metzeler Roadtec Z8 to the all new Pirelli Angel GT rubber. Turns out I picked a great day to fit the new sports touring tyres - not!It's ...

Staff Blog: Bagging the F800GT

Steve Hunt, 16 May 2013 13:44

Another weekend, another trip down to Somerset to catch-up with friends and family. It was also another weekend when the heavens have opened and I’ve had to ride the F800GT down in the pouring rain. And hailstones. Come to think of it, I don’t think that there has been a time when I have had a ride where I have ...

Staff Blog: Let the journey begin!

Ian Jubb, 13 May 2013 13:22

My week of riding has begun, destination Northern Italy. Sitting in the sunshine at Folkstone waiting for my slot on the Chunnel makes me realise what biking is all about. This years seemly endless winter made me forget the appeal of the two wheeled lifestyle, it's ok now, I definitely remember. Only 450 more miles to go today, accompanied by ...

Staff Blog: Nailing The Basics

Steve Hunt, 22 April 2013 10:31

With the sun threatening to finally breakthrough and bring back some semblance of normality to the spring climate, now is the time that most riders come out of their enforced hibernation and return to the road. But rusty riders on defrosting roads don’t always make for the best of combinations and it’s these riders that the California Superbike School are ...

Living with the BMW F800GT

Steve Hunt, 17 April 2013 11:45

After a month of ownership and a few emails and messages coming in from people who’ve read my longterm reports in the MCN paper I thought it would be a good start to this blog if I responded to these queries here – mainly because I am sure that the questions asked and their answers would be of interest to ...

MCN, 15 March 2013 15:50

The new BMW F800GT aims to be a daily commuter, load-lugging tourer and weekend fun ride. The GT replaces the F800ST, which has been a decent seller in the middleweight touring bracket since 2006. The new bike has a new fairing, more power, changed riding position and updated parts to reposition it as a true touring machine rather than a ...

BMW’s new middleweight tourer, the F800GT, is currently being put through its paces for the first time by MCN’s Andy Downes. These are his first impressions: “We’ve done around 100 miles so far through Hertfordshire and into Suffolk on mostly wet and slimy roads but the new BMW is proving perfect for the conditions.
