Staff Blog: Time for new shoes!

Ian Jubb, 29 May 2013 15:29

Having just clocked up 3000 miles on the RT the rear is starting to square off and with a trip to France looming I figured it's best to get them switched from the OE Metzeler Roadtec Z8 to the all new Pirelli Angel GT rubber. Turns out I picked a great day to fit the new sports touring tyres - not!It's ...

Staff Blog: I Can See Clearly Now.......

Alison Silcox, 26 May 2013 19:45

It’s a couple of weeks without riding for me I’m afraid. After 24 years of being a ‘specy-four-eyes’ I’ve taken  the plunge and had lazer eye surgery. You might wonder why I’m writing about this on my blog and how it relates to my riding the Fazer8, well if you don’t wear glasses you won’t appreciate what it’s like and ...

Video: Ducati Hypermotard new vs old

Michael Neeves, 22 May 2013 16:34

Ducati's new 821cc Hypermotard replaces two old Hypermotards: the little 796 and its bigger brother, the 1100 Evo. It has a similar-size engine to the small one, but more power than the big one, so what kind of buyer will be attracted to it? To find out, we got two MCN road testers and two less-experienced riders on the staff ...

Video: Honda CRF250M first ride

MCN, 17 May 2013 13:58

Take the useful, liquid-cooled, four-stroke single out of the popular, learner friendly CBR250R and create a proper trailie around it (the CRF250L). Then let's go one step further and make a supermoto out of it - the result is this, the Honda CRF250M! brightcove.createExperiences();

Staff Blog: Daily smiles from CBR500R

Andy Calton, 08 May 2013 16:34

My only fear with Honda's CBR500R was whether it would be a little too tame and that I'd get bored with it all-too quickly. Just over a month and 1000 miles in I can categorically state that I'm still loving the little twin and it's delivering plenty of smiles on a daily basis. I have previously owned a Yamaha Fazer ...

Staff Blog: Running In or Running Out!!

Alison Silcox, 06 May 2013 08:00

I arrived back from my trip to Normandy with the bike a little over the first service mileage of 600 so instead of being out in the lovely sunshine, getting more miles under my belt and practising my skills, the bike’s been in the garage waiting for a quick trip to Yamaha. It’s not a bad thing that I’m stuck ...

Staff Blog: Running-in, in France

Alison Silcox, 29 April 2013 11:30

What better way to run in the new Yamaha Fazer 8 than to pop over to Normandy for a three day rider training work shop with Nigel, nicknamed Red Leader, from Advanced Motorcycle Training! I took collection of the bike on Monday, fitted the Ventura luggage system on Wednesday and was on the ferry bound for Caen on Friday, not ...

Staff Blog: Today is a good day…

Michael Guy, 26 April 2013 12:06

The last couple of months haven’t been easy. I’ve seen my colleagues at MCN come bouncing into the office having received their long term test bikes for the year. I however have been forced to do my commute up the A1 in a people carrier, which as the weather has improved has become increasingly soul destroying. But, today that all ...

Staff Blog: The long way home

Tony Hoare, 25 April 2013 14:52

“The ride to work is going to be a blast on the nimble triple – and the ride home again is going to be even better. Dear A1, you’ll not be seeing much of me.” The grey and red Triumph Street Triple R in the shed outside work has my name on it. Figuratively, not literally of course. I’ve got ...

Staff Blog: Are Harley's cool?

Ped Baker, 24 April 2013 16:36

A couple of years ago I asked an MCN work experience girl what she thought of motorcyclists. I was hoping she’d use words like ‘cool’, ‘exciting’, perhaps even ‘sexy’ but instead she said, “They’re all old blokes... you think they could be a bit of alright and then they take their helmets off... and they’re all my dad’s age.” She ...
