Michael Neeves, 07 May 2013 09:40

If someone told me a few years ago, I’d want a bike with panniers and a centre stand, I’d have thought they were mad. But here I am, about to spend the summer with the 2013 Ducati Hyperstrada – a bike with panniers, a centre stand and even 12v power sockets, for god’s sake. Of course, the Hyperstrada is about ...

TT Race for Sale

Michael Neeves, 13 March 2013 16:05

Don’t worry, it’s not the 2013 Isle of Man TT races going under the hammer, it’s the number plate: TT12 ACE, selling for £3000. If you squash the numbers 1 and 2 up to make an R, stand well back and squint, it reads TT RACE… probably. It you can imagine the plate adorning your motorcycle, car or TT motorhome, ...

Michael Neeves, 18 May 2012 16:12

Honda’s first production V4, tested by MCN 30 years ago this week, was the start of a dynasty Honda was determined would define it, if it didn’t destroy it first. It scaled no greater heights than the VFR750R RC30, NR750 RC40 and RVF750 RC45. Honda VFR750R RC30 It’s hard to believe the RC30 is 24 years old because even by ...

Nurburgring – bikers beware

Michael Neeves, 04 October 2011 16:52

Roadworks and no warning signs caused an eight-car pile-up at the Nurburgring on Sunday, on one of the busiest days of the year. Luckily no motorcycles were involved, but the incident should remind bikers of the perils of riding the famous ‘pay-and-play’ Nordschleife circuit in Germany, where the track is classed as a public road and is also used by ...

That’s over two seconds faster than I went here last year on the same bike and over a second quicker than my personal ...
