Used buying guide: BMW GS

Jon Urry, 12 July 2013 08:30

What can be said about BMW’s legendary GS that hasn’t already been extensively documented? As well as being the longest running model in modern motorcycling, the GS has formed the backbone of BMW Motorrad with currently 25% of their sales coming from this machine alone. It is, quite simply, the most successful modern motorcycle on the planet. But it doesn’t ...

BMW S1000RR gets mid-life refresh

MCN, 01 July 2013 07:30

BMW is months away from launching a revised S1000RR which insiders say will get semi-active suspension from the HP4, a host of minor revisions along with an even more sophisticated ABS system which can even work when cornering to prevent lowside crashes. This prototype BMW confirms the company is continuing development of the class-leading superbike with a mid-life refresh that ...

Best bikes for under £5k: 2005-2009 BMW R1200RT

MCN, 24 June 2013 07:30

What was it like then?Bland but effective BMWs, like the R1150RT, managed to attract an army of fans, but they did comprise a rather stereotypical legion of buyers. While many bikes in the Bavarian range could be accused of image and purpose confusion, the tourers had at least always been fit for purpose, until the R1200RT emerged blinking into the ...

Staff Blog: Bavaria and back on the Beemer

Steve Hunt, 19 June 2013 12:57

The BMW F800GT is a tourer. So far I’ve covered just short of three thousand miles worth of short trips to and from various parts of the country - living out of the panniers for the occasional odd night over here and there - but I’m yet to have dipped my toe into the Grand Tour side of the bike ...

Staff Blog: I bet it won’t go off-road…

Richard Newland, 19 June 2013 10:10

Whether I’m picking up a curry on a Saturday night, filling up with petrol somewhere, or answering calls from readers who are thinking of buying one (or never buying one) – I’m regularly bombarded by the sure assertion that the R1200GS must be rubbish when the Tarmac gives way to the soft stuff. It’s a slightly odd assertion considering the ...

Staff Blog: Deflated at Donington

Steve Hunt, 05 June 2013 13:25

Being responsible for the online aspect of Motorcyclenews, I don’t get much of a chance to leave the office and the phosphorous glow of the monitor screens. So, when I had the opportunity to spend three days at Donington Park for the World Superbikes I leapt at the chance. It was work – of course – I would have to ...

Staff Blog: Swings and roundabouts

Richard Newland, 05 June 2013 10:42

Every bike will delight and frustrate you to some extent – it’s an inevitable truth. While touches of pure and simple genius will provide fodder to evangelise to your friends, there will always be those ‘what were they thinking’ facets that tug at the back of your happiness, and which you hope no-one else picks up on. The GS isn’t ...

Staff Blog: Hello Moto(rrad)

MCN, 29 May 2013 15:44

If you’d told me ten years ago that I’d be ecstatic at the prospect of riding an R1200GS as a longterm test bike, I’d have been breathless with laughter before any sort of verbal response could form on my lips. But back in the here and now, I’m just that – ecstatic. So what’s changed? Well there’s no point pretending ...

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: Bagging the F800GT

Steve Hunt, 16 May 2013 13:44

Another weekend, another trip down to Somerset to catch-up with friends and family. It was also another weekend when the heavens have opened and I’ve had to ride the F800GT down in the pouring rain. And hailstones. Come to think of it, I don’t think that there has been a time when I have had a ride where I have ...
