Michael Neeves blog – Off Road Skills

Michael Neeves, 18 October 2011 12:23

I’ve just returned from two days in Wales with Paris Dakar legend Simon Pavey, at his off-road school, or the ‘Odd Road Skills, powered by World of BMW and Husqvarna’, to give it its full name. It was the best riding school I’ve ever been to. I’ll readily admit I’m an off-road numpty. I love the idea of riding in ...

Staff bikes: BMW G650GS - Bye-bye Beemer

Steve Farrell, 13 October 2011 16:34

Like many motorcyclists I'm sure, every day I'm watched through my window by my little lad as I get on my bike and ride off to work. So I'm not the only one who will be a little sad that BMW has asked for the G650GS back early. Readers of my recent updates may remember me complaining about the early ...

Staff bikes: BMW K1600GT - Turning up the volume

Simon Relph, 14 September 2011 12:57

I recently picked up the first pair of Remus Hexacone slip on silencers in the country (www.performanceparts-ltd.com) to go on the BMW K1600GT and decided it might be fun to time just how long it takes the remove the old and fit the new. The titanium silencers have a carbon outlet, and are road legal with removable baffles – all ...

Staff bikes: BMW G650GS - Who needs the badge?

Steve Farrell, 07 September 2011 12:39

In a recent update I highlighted the disappointingly early beginnings of corrosion on my G650GS's frame, a development that has left me dreading winter. Now I’ve got a BMW cover, which should help. It's lovely, as BMW accessories tend to be, with a number plate window and integral storage bag. But I got a shock when I saw the price. ...

MRO Powerbike blog: Snetterton 200 3/4th September

Michael Neeves, 05 September 2011 16:56

For the penultimate round of the MRO Powerbike championship, we raced on the new two-mile-long Snetterton 200, the first ever meeting to be held on this mid-layout version of the new track. It’s the closest to how the 'old' Snetterton was - basically the 300 circuit without the infield section. There’s a chicane leading on to the back straight now ...

Staff bikes: BMW G650GS - Corrosion sets in

Steve Farrell, 09 August 2011 13:28

I really like my G650GS. So I’m massively disappointed to report that the paintwork doesn’t seem to be up to much. Corrosion is already beginning to appear in places and it’s not yet had to endure a single winter. A BMW spokesman said: ‘Obviously I can’t really comment on the cause of the corrosion until the bike has been inspected. ...

MRO Powerbike blog: Brands Hatch Indy 30/31 July

Michael Neeves, 05 August 2011 13:35

Well, that was another fantastic weekend racing with Bemsee in the MRO Powerbike championship. Riding my BMW Park Lane S1000RR, we bagged three third positions, had some close racing with leaders Rob McNealy and Peter Baker and I posted my best ever lap of the Brands Indy circuit, with a 48.1. Championship leader Rob McNealy stretched out his lead on ...

MRO Powerbike blog: Snetterton 300

Michael Neeves, 12 July 2011 16:12

Another good weekend racing in the bag, with two second places and a third. It’s the second time we’ve visited the Snetterton 300 circuit this year and we’re back again in September racing on the smaller ‘200’ layout. It’s very hard to grind out a good lap time around this place. There’s a real mix of ultra-fast, heart-in-the-mouth turns and ...

BMW S1000RR racers ridden

Michael Neeves, 07 July 2011 10:34

What happens when you take one of the most powerful, best-handling sportsbikes, loaded with the latest electronic rider aids and turn it into a racer? To find out, BMW let us ride four S1000RRs, back-to-back at Monza. We got familiar with the track on a bog-standard road bike, then tried Lorenzo Zanetti’s BMW Team Motorrad Italia FIM Superstock 1000 Cup ...

Staff bikes: BMW G650GS - When different isn’t better

Steve Farrell, 03 June 2011 10:12

In my last update on the G650GS I’m riding this year, I mentioned how BMWs are different to other bikes in the detail. I said they were not always better but never without effort. Well, here’s an example : The indicator switch. The G650GS does not feature BMW’s famously different three-switch arrangement, with a button on each bar to activate ...
