Boot Review: Alpinestars Gore-Tex CR-4

Alpinestars Gore-Tex CR-4 £149.99 Time tested: 20,000 miles/ 6+ years What’s good? As you can tell by the state of my Alpinestars boots they’ve had a hard life, but survived some real abuse. I occasionally wear them on the bike in summer, especially if I’m riding something under 250cc like a Honda CBR125 or scooter for example, but they’ve also ...

Staff blog: The toughest test ever!

This year is going to epic, one I’m going to look back on for years to come and it’s mainly going to be down to my lovely ZX-6R. Just last week I took delivery of my new Kawasaki and unusually for me, I’m treating her with kid-gloves, nice and gentle for the first few hundred miles, before unleashing its full ...

Suzuki C1500T first ride

They may be about as relevant in the UK as a 50ft Winnebago or eight-litre SUV but, if you hadn’t cottoned on already, ‘baggers’ - or be-bagged or panniered cruisers designed for comfort and custom style and, usually, also with Plexiglass screens, a relaxed riding position and footboards instead of conventional footpegs, are big news in the U S of A. ...

Aprilia Caponord first ride

As the biking audience matures, demand continues to increase for adventure bikes. Early last year Triumph launched its new Explorer which took the coveted MCN road test class crown in 2012. But since then Ducati has launched its new ‘skyhook’ Multistrada, the first to come with true semi-active suspension, while both KTM and BMW have introduced new models which have ...

Used Buying Guide: Kawasaki ZX-10R

We can safely say Kawasaki didn’t really produce an out-and-out sports bike with the ZX-9R, especially towards the end of its life cycle, when it was facing competition from the mighty Yamaha R1 and Suzuki GSX-R1000. The old 900 was more of a soft sports bike with great power and comfort rather than a cutting edge sportster with razor sharp ...

'How I bagged a Britten'

Britten owner and dedicated biker, Kevin Grant, bought his first bike aged 15, then got into racing and collecting bikes. How did you come to own a Britten?I picked it up in 1996, or '97, I think. It was just a quirk of fate really. We were going to a jubilee meeting at Assen, and I was trying to organise ...

MCN rides the Britten V1000

‘Outstanding’, ‘amazing’, and ‘work of art’ are all labels liberally applied to the exotic race bikes built by John Britten, but in reality the Britten deserves a unique accolade to celebrate its existence. In many peoples’ minds it’s simply the greatest bike ever made. For me it transcends everything, it’s a dream bike, it was the poster bike I had ...
