KTM Duke II

Anonymous, 21 October 2001 00:00

For sportsbike riders who’ve never sat on a supermoto, the first five minutes on a Duke are an education.

We’ve lost

Anonymous, 07 October 2001 00:00

Dayglo Pink Kit: Like shell suits and mullets, some of the worst fashion atrocities of the eighties still hadn’t had the decency to die gracefully by the time 1991 rolled around. We all have painful recollections of the splashes of pink, purple and other equally lurid colours on leathers, gloves, boots, helmets and - most heinous of all - even ...
