Staff blog: Fourth time lucky!

Simon Patterson, 16 August 2013 16:16

First of all, I need to say thanks for all the emails I've received over the past few days. I've had a ton of comments, tips, suggestions and offers of free training since my piece in Wednesday's paper on failing my mod one test (for the third time). I have to admit to keeping something under my hat (helmet?), though: ...

Staff Blog: Top Box Woes

Alison Silcox, 05 August 2013 08:00

You might have read in my recent long term report, featured in July 24 issue of MCN, about fitting the top box to the Yamaha Fazer8. I’m testing different types of luggage to see which is the easiest to use and which I prefer. So far I’m not overly impressed with the top box. Initially fitting the box the rear ...

Staff Blog: To Flash or Not to Flash?

Alison Silcox, 29 July 2013 08:00

  My hubby and I were riding through the rolling Leicestershire countryside towards Rutland Water on a recent Sunday morning ride when we were flashed twice by oncoming cars but not at all by the oncoming bikes. Being cautious we slowed to just under the speed limit and after about half a mile came upon a sneaky camera van tucked ...

Staff Blog: I Love Wednesdays.....

Alison Silcox, 18 July 2013 08:16

  The lads in the office are bored stiff of hearing me say it but I’m going to say it again, I don’t work Wednesdays and what better way to spend the day than riding the Yamaha Fazer8. Along with a couple of mates and my hubby we planned a 300 miles round trip to a brilliant bike meet. Further to ...

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.

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 ...

Used buying guide: Yamaha R1

Jon Urry, 03 July 2013 10:18

If you have to pick out a year that marked the revival of the litre bike category then look no further than 2004. With World Superbikes turning to 1000cc inline fours rather than 750cc homologation specials, the pressure was on the Japanese in the early-noughties to deliver to riders a whole new breed of affordable sportsbike. The litre bike war ...
