Marc Abbott, 14 June 2010 17:17

We've just received this special video message from Isle of Man TT star Guy Martin, in which the decidedly fortunate road racer promises to be back soon! Guy Martin: “I'm alright boy” Good to see his crash in the Senior TT hasn't changed his enthusiasm for racing, or for a good brew. For the full story behind the crash, and ...

Staff bikes: Enfield Clubman - I can see clearly now

Marc Abbott, 07 June 2010 10:14

I have an addictive personality; I horde things, lots of things. There are approximately 30 pairs of shoes scattered around my house, my garage looks like a library, the loft is full of old C90 compilation tapes and LPs... and now that I own a bike which demands the use of an open-face lid I fear I might've started a ...

Staff bikes: Enfield Clubman - Coppers can't touch me!

Marc Abbott, 24 May 2010 09:30

Staff bikes: Enfield Clubman - Top speed test for 28bhp missile

Marc Abbott, 12 May 2010 15:53

My Enfield Bullet Clubman has no rev counter and nothing but an ‘old-fashioned’ dial by way of speedometer. And once above a certain speed the needle can wander by as much as 10mph either way. A previous model I rode maxed out at an indicated 82mph in top gear; this one will hit an indicated 95mph before the rev limiter. ...

Legal advice: It's you versus the Highways Agency

Marc Abbott, 12 January 2010 15:30

"I was travelling home at night on a minor country road. Next thing I knew, I was spinning around like a top as I came around the corner and had to let go of the bike. I haven't injured myself (thankfully) but when I picked the bike up there was mud all over it. I checked the road and there ...

Beware track bikes with no V5

Marc Abbott, 20 November 2009 15:06

Be very careful if you are buying a track bike, even from a dealer, and it doesn't have a V5 registration document because 'the chassis number has been removed to prevent a V5 being issued and it being used on the road'.
