MCN tour hits first snag

Anonymous, 11 August 2004 00:00

MCN's Angus Farquhar and Marc Abott have reached Ireland after an eventful first stage of their trip to the Emerald Isle. Used Bikes Editor Farquhar was enjoying the sun started to go down - and he discovered his lights weren't working properly on his Honda CBR600F (supplied by DK Motorcycles). The only work round was to ride on main beam, ...

Track lessons on our GSX-R1000

Anonymous, 01 August 2004 00:00

"The first drill of the day was all about selecting and using reference points – for your turn in point, your apex and your exit. And it was all done in fourth gear – with no brakes. And that made the final tight chicane a challenge – but it could be done. "I never did get that chicane right all ...

Great night at Squires

Anonymous, 21 July 2004 00:00

Many of the MCN long term fleet made the trek up the A1M from Peterborough on Wednesday June 23 to sample the bike meet at Squires Cafe in Yorkshire. It was an informal two-hour ride-out after work, so most of us were out of uniform, but we all managed to grab some readers for a chat. It you were wondering ...

Parking row latest

Anonymous, 14 July 2004 00:00

The observant ones among you might remember that Editor David Cushman was unfortunate enough to have his 2004 GSX-R1000 stolen from a parking bay in London in April. His long term report, here, mentioned that one of his colleagues received a parking ticket - for trying to prevent his own bike from being stolen. Well, that colleague was me, and ...

Back to superbike school

Anonymous, 01 July 2004 00:00

I know how to ride. Sounds arrogant doesn’t it? But it’s true, I really do know the theory of how to ride inside out. It’s the practice I sometimes struggle with. After a series of relatively hefty sports-tourers my GSX-R1000 has come as something of a revelation. It’s so light, so flickable, so sharp-handling – and I really liked the ...

Rapid Skills day

Anonymous, 01 July 2004 00:00

There’s not much point in having a sports bike if you don’t know how to use it properly. Having only ever owned all-rounders before I thought it was about time to learn some fast riding skills now that I have the Honda CBR600F (supplied by DK Motorcycles), so I booked myself on to a Rapid Skills track based course. The ...

GSX-R breezes service

Anonymous, 30 June 2004 00:00

My GSX-R1000 has sailed through its first service - and that's a stage further than the first one I had this year... That one, you may recall, got stolen the day before it was booked in for its first service. My new GSX-R1000Z (the limited edition black one) went in to Hallens in Cambridge (well, to the Histon road Allins ...

Living with a CBR600F

Anonymous, 30 June 2004 00:00

Too much cold tyre acceleration ruined the first set of new tyres I put on the CBR but when I had the new Pirellis fitted the different profile made the tyre rub on the Hugger that was fitted to the bike when I got it. It’s been removed now so I need to find one with a bit more clearance. ...

Tracker fitted to GSX-R

Anonymous, 16 June 2004 00:00

When my K4 GSX-R1000 was lifted from a parking space in a busy London street I went through a range of emotions that I really didn’t want to experience again. None of them were particularly noble. It’s hard to be proud of the desire to maim. So avoiding anything similar while I am in possession of the limited edition black ...
