Staff Blog: New Dog, Newer Tricks

Steve Hunt, 04 October 2013 11:43

I’ve been riding a ‘big bike’ for twelve months now and the last eight of them have been spent working for the world’s largest motorcycling publication. I am very aware of how enviable a position this puts me in amongst the British motorcycling community and whenever I mention to someone whom I have just met about what it is that ...

Staff Blog: F800GT - A feeling of belonging.

Steve Hunt, 07 August 2013 15:36

The grey, British skies seemed determined to quell my excited mood and, as I joined the queue for the channel tunnel, the drizzle misted across my visor and I wasn't entirely sure that a six hour sprint across France was the most sensible way in which to pop my touring cherry. The panicked security guard, running around the cafe asking ...

Staff Blog: It’s not all about the new stuff

Richard Newland, 01 August 2013 10:48

While at the Goodwood Festival of Speed a couple of weeks ago, I was chatting with an MCN reader about the BMW 90th Anniversary display, each of us singling out the models we’d own if money was no object. He was a nice chap, but his ‘mate’ clearly had a bit of a chip on his shoulder about the bike ...

Staff Blog: Back from Bavaria

Steve Hunt, 12 July 2013 09:34

That's it. My Garmisch trip is all over. It was a fantastic few days, made all the better by a glorious, bookend of rides through France, Germany and a little bit of Austria. I've written a longer report for the paper (don't forget Apple and Google editions!) which will be published in a couple of weeks - but whilst I was ...

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 ...
