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: Let the journey begin!

Ian Jubb, 13 May 2013 13:22

My week of riding has begun, destination Northern Italy. Sitting in the sunshine at Folkstone waiting for my slot on the Chunnel makes me realise what biking is all about. This years seemly endless winter made me forget the appeal of the two wheeled lifestyle, it's ok now, I definitely remember. Only 450 more miles to go today, accompanied by ...

Staff bikes: BMW G650GS - Who needs the badge?

Steve Farrell, 07 September 2011 12:39

In a recent update I highlighted the disappointingly early beginnings of corrosion on my G650GS's frame, a development that has left me dreading winter. Now I’ve got a BMW cover, which should help. It's lovely, as BMW accessories tend to be, with a number plate window and integral storage bag. But I got a shock when I saw the price. ...

Staff bikes: BMW G650GS - When different isn’t better

Steve Farrell, 03 June 2011 10:12

In my last update on the G650GS I’m riding this year, I mentioned how BMWs are different to other bikes in the detail. I said they were not always better but never without effort. Well, here’s an example : The indicator switch. The G650GS does not feature BMW’s famously different three-switch arrangement, with a button on each bar to activate ...

MRO Powerbike blog: Cadwell Park

Michael Neeves, 13 April 2011 12:17

It was one of the best racing weekends for me so far on my beloved BMW Park lane S1000RR. The weather was glorious and I managed three thirds in Powerbikes, with a best lap time of 1.33.01. That’s over two seconds faster than I went here last year on the same bike and over a second quicker than my personal ...
