Staff Blog: Friday Night is Rideout Night!!!

  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: In defence of the Burgman, pt 1

I’m experiencing mild frustration at some of the preconceptions I’ve encountered about the Burgman. If you’ve read my replies to reader comments under my previous blog entries, you may have detected a hint of defensiveness.   Although I’m really enjoying using the Burgman, for example, people keep telling me to get rid of it. So far five reader comments have ...

Staff Blog: Not so naked now

I have finally fitted a screen from German firm MRA. The aftermarket plastic is not specifically designed for the Z800 but is a racing screen built for newer, aggressively-styled naked bikes. I fitted the screen in about 15 minutes with an Allen key and a screwdriver in the office car park. Everything smoothly slotted into place and the shield looks ...

MV Agusta F3 800 ridden!

MV Agusta’s brand new £11,499 F3 800 is currently being put through its paces at Misano in Italy by MCN Senior Road Tester Michael Neeves. Here are his first impressions: “The new machine is basically the same as the F3 675, but has a longer stroke engine, a claimed145bhp at the crank and tweaked suspension damping and spring rates. “I've done a ...

Staff Blog: I Love Sunny Saturday Rides!

  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 ...

Staff Blog: Hello Moto(rrad)

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!

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: I Can See Clearly Now.......

It’s a couple of weeks without riding for me I’m afraid. After 24 years of being a ‘specy-four-eyes’ I’ve taken  the plunge and had lazer eye surgery. You might wonder why I’m writing about this on my blog and how it relates to my riding the Fazer8, well if you don’t wear glasses you won’t appreciate what it’s like and ...

Video: Ducati Hypermotard new vs old

Ducati's new 821cc Hypermotard replaces two old Hypermotards: the little 796 and its bigger brother, the 1100 Evo. It has a similar-size engine to the small one, but more power than the big one, so what kind of buyer will be attracted to it? To find out, we got two MCN road testers and two less-experienced riders on the staff ...
