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.

Editor's picks: BMW R1100S

MCN, 13 October 2011 17:30

Anonymous, 23 September 2011 17:15

Here in the MCN office there is an ongoing conversation about the merits of Boxer twins. The short-lived R1200S is a real opinion-divider... Somehow you already know if you want the BMW R1200S. The looks divide opinions, but only half as much as the Boxer engine and the Telelever/Paralever suspension do. BMW has strained the limits of these design parameters ...

Editor's picks: BMW R1200R

MCN, 21 September 2011 16:30

The BMW R1200R is the lesser known boxer engine-powered machine in the German company's present range of bikes. With 702 R1200GS models sold up to the end of July this year and only 134 R1200R in comparison, everybody's favourite it seems is the adventure-biased R1200GS, or is it?
