Staff Blog: Thundersport Rockingham

  I haven’t had much of a chance to do anything of note with my Hyperstrada over the past week. But it did treat me to a glorious ride cross-country to Donington last Wednesday, where I instruct at the Ron Haslam Race School. The early morning journey there and late evening ride back was perfect, with twisty, empty B-roads, sunshine ...

Staff Blog: Dirty Ducati

I’ve been away for over a week testing, but for all that time I’ve been thinking of my filthy Hyperstrada. Covered in thick dust, it looks like it’s spent months abandoned in the Sahara, but all that muck is from being parked-up at the Goodwood Festival of Speed last weekend. Sleeping in the MCN van over the course of the ...

Staff Blog: Hyperstrada – 3588-miles in eight days.

  I’ve just got back from my 3588-mile riding holiday to France, Spain and Portugal. It seems weird just riding to work today and not grinding out hundreds of miles in the sunshine, on the wrong side of the road, like I’ve been doing for the past eight days. Although the roads down the west coast of France, across the ...

Staff blog: Hyperstrada on tour

I'm half way through a riding holiday with a couple of my mates. We've ridden down the west coast of France, along the top of Spain and now stopped half way down the Portuguese coast, in the resort of Figueira Da Foz. There doesn't seem to be anyone here in Portugal, from the towns to the motorways. It's like one ...

Staff Blog: Hyperstrada at Snetterton and beyond

I took my Hyperstrada for a blast around the Snetterton 300 circuit on Monday – my second trackday of the year on the Ducati. I was there helping fellow MCN-er, Andy Davidson, who was doing his first ever trackday on his long term Kawasaki Z800. It’s easy to take trackdays for granted when you do a lot of them, but ...

Michelin v Pirelli

I’ve spent this week getting to know the new Pirelli Angel GT tyres I fitted on Monday. I’ve been using my bike for commuting to work and the other day I rode the 320-mile round trip down to Ramsgate and back to see my brother Ben. We took a couple of days off and did a car trackday at the ...

Staff Blog: Hyperstrada Tyre Testing

I’m working my way through as many new-for-2013 tyres as I can for this year, so I can see what the tyre companies have been up to. With each new generation of tyre, we get more bang for our buck. The new breed keep getting gripper, better in the wet and more durable. I ran the standard Pirelli Scorpion dual ...

Staff Blog: Neeves on the Hyperstrada launch, broken keys and trackdays.

This is the second in the series of video reviews for my Ducati Hyperstrada long term test bike. Here I go along to the official launch of the Hyperstrada, get a puncture, bend my ignition key and do a trackday at Anglesey.   brightcove.createExperiences();   BLOG13 | HYPER13

Staff Blog: Finding time for the Hyperstrada

I’ve never known it to be so busy in MCN Road Test land, so I find myself away travelling lots. It means that sometimes I’m riding my Hyperstrada every day and occasionally weeks will go by where it sits in my garage, untouched. But now things are slowing down a touch. Lots of the new bike tests are fizzling out ...
