Staff bikes: Victory Hammer S: Vic 'n chips

Chris Newbigging, 07 July 2010 17:00

For an upcoming long-term test feature in the print edition of MCN, I invited Harley owners out for a ride on my Victory Hammer S. Yesterday myself and three Harley owners headed to the coast to swap bikes, swap banter and see where 12 year-old upstart firm Victory fits next to Harley-Davidson, riding on 107 years of history and glamour. ...

Staff bikes: Triumph Street Triple - Breaking it in

Dan Aspel, 07 July 2010 16:50

The first 1000 miles of riding the Street Triple was a real bonding experience between myself and the bike. Feeling the engine develop from a tightly-wound, tense machine into something more fluid and smooth gave me a real sense of understanding its potential. As a new-ish rider (full license last July), this left me excited at the prospect of growing ...

Staff bikes: Suzuki GSX-R600 - setting it up to suit

James Keen, 23 June 2010 10:10

The GSX-R600 is great fun on the open road, but at slow speed the riding position can be torture - supersport 600s aren't known for their comfort and in fairness that's not what they're about. But that said I've managed to drastically reduce muscle ache in two simple steps - and without spending a penny.  The bars are low of ...

Staff bikes: CBR600F - Carb cleaning brings it back to life

Andy Downes, 23 June 2010 10:04

After buying my 1998 Honda CBR600F in the middle of the grim winter weather actually getting around to riding it had to wait for a while. When I did get to ride it, it was clear the carburettor would need some serious cleaning as the throttle response was jerky and stuttering. A can of Wynn’s carb cleaner was sadly not ...

Staff bikes: Suzuki GSX-R600 - Thundersprint 2010

James Keen, 09 June 2010 14:59

I’m not a racer – I haven’t even done that many track days. So it was surreal to end up in the start line queue behind the likes of Chris Walker, Danny Webb and Steve Parrish ready to compete in this year’s Thundersprint.  Before the event I was getting mixed signals from other MCN staff, which didn't help the nerves. ...

Staff bikes: CBR600F - The proud (and skint) owner of a 1998 Honda CBR600F

Andy Downes, 07 June 2010 10:27

Nobody in the world is more relieved I have actually been successful in finding a new bike than those MCN staff who sit closest to me at work. No longer do they have to look at what I have just found on MCN Bikemart and pretend to be interested. Or listen to me legitimising why I could ‘actually save money’ ...

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: BMW R1200RT - 6000 mile service in ten weeks

Andy Downes, 03 June 2010 17:48

Just ten weeks after I was lucky enough to get my hands on the 2010 BMW R1200RT as my long term test bike it has been in for the 6000 miles service. The result is a bike that now feels as fresh as new again despite the speedy rate the miles have been racked up.  The gearbox is loosening up, ...

Staff bikes: Victory Hammer S - Hey you, pipe down at the back!

Chris Newbigging, 03 June 2010 16:37

The genuine Victory accessory performance 2-1 exhaust on my Hammer S looks lovely. Deep chrome, neat welds and a shape that really suits the hot-rod shape of my Victory. So I’m gutted that I’ve damaged it. Not maliciously, or in an act of stupidity, but through enjoying it a bit too much. The hero blobs don’t take much to dispense ...

Staff bikes: Yamaha TZR250 - On every other Sunday

Chris Newbigging, 02 June 2010 15:53

You’ll probably think I’m a bit of a slacker for not starting my TZR250 blog until I’ve already competed in three rounds of this season. Which is fair enough, but in my defence, the start of the season has been a whirlwind – the first three rounds were separated by just 12 days each. Even pre-season, it was hectic – ...
