Staff bikes: BMW K1600GT SE - Rain? What rain?

Simon Relph, 12 August 2011 12:31

At long last the real British summer is upon us, and I finally get to ride the BMW K1600GT in the wet. Since I took delivery of the bike, it literally has not rained, or when it has I have been tethered to my desk in the MCN office. I have played with the fly-by-wire throttle settings (dynamic, road and ...

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 ...

Staff bikes: BMW G650GS - 'Quality'

Steve Farrell, 21 April 2011 16:46

I’ve just spent my first weekend with the BMW G650GS, after taking delivery of it on Friday, and the word I want to say is: quality. You’d never guess this is one of the cheapest big bikes you can buy. The screen is as blemish-free as glass, so much so that I can attach my sat nav with a suction ...
