Staff Blog: Well, that’ll be autumn then!

Alison Silcox, 03 October 2013 09:33

  Riding in this morning I’ve had to give in and fully kit up in cordura. Looking out of the bedroom window at 7.30 it was really quite murky and living in the middle of a housing estate if it’s murky outside our house I know it’s going to be worse heading towards the A1. I knew it was time ...

Staff Blog: I Love Wednesdays.....

Alison Silcox, 18 July 2013 08:16

  The lads in the office are bored stiff of hearing me say it but I’m going to say it again, I don’t work Wednesdays and what better way to spend the day than riding the Yamaha Fazer8. Along with a couple of mates and my hubby we planned a 300 miles round trip to a brilliant bike meet. Further to ...

Staff Blog: Friday Night is Rideout Night!!!

Alison Silcox, 24 June 2013 07:58

Staff Blog: I Love Sunny Saturday Rides!

Alison Silcox, 03 June 2013 08:05

  What glorious weather, waking up on Saturday morning with sun streaming through the window I had no excuse but to get out on the Yamaha Fazer8 and ride. My other half was helping mates at the Bemsee round being held at Oulton Park so with that as the destination I set out on my day’s ride. It’s 140 mile ...

Staff Blog: I Can See Clearly Now.......

Alison Silcox, 26 May 2013 19:45

It’s a couple of weeks without riding for me I’m afraid. After 24 years of being a ‘specy-four-eyes’ I’ve taken  the plunge and had lazer eye surgery. You might wonder why I’m writing about this on my blog and how it relates to my riding the Fazer8, well if you don’t wear glasses you won’t appreciate what it’s like and ...

Staff Blog: Running In or Running Out!!

Alison Silcox, 06 May 2013 08:00

I arrived back from my trip to Normandy with the bike a little over the first service mileage of 600 so instead of being out in the lovely sunshine, getting more miles under my belt and practising my skills, the bike’s been in the garage waiting for a quick trip to Yamaha. It’s not a bad thing that I’m stuck ...

Staff Blog: Running-in, in France

Alison Silcox, 29 April 2013 11:30

What better way to run in the new Yamaha Fazer 8 than to pop over to Normandy for a three day rider training work shop with Nigel, nicknamed Red Leader, from Advanced Motorcycle Training! I took collection of the bike on Monday, fitted the Ventura luggage system on Wednesday and was on the ferry bound for Caen on Friday, not ...

Aimed at getting a slice of the most lucrative sector in biking, the Yamaha’s had success thanks to its good looks, build quality and reliability.
