Video: Yamaha MT-09 takes on rivals

Yamaha's new three-cylinder 847cc MT-09 is one of the most exciting new bikes to come out of Japan in years, aiming to be the best in one of the most interesting emerging classes; the middleweight naked. We've already ridden it at its launch and we were impressed, bar a couple of niggles, but now it's time to pitch it against ...

Staff Blog: Leave it, Lock it, Love it!

  Travelling into London for a mini-adventure at the weekend I needed to make sure I’d got a way to secure my bike and also relieve myself of having to carry too much cumbersome luggage around with me. The Oxford Lid Locker was such a brilliant little find and at only £19.99 a great priced bit of kit too. It ...

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

  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: To Jet Wash or Not to Jet Wash?

  I lent my bike to a colleague last week for the MCN Awards ride out and after an awfully wet ride down to the venue in Dorking, followed by a couple of hours riding through the Surrey Hills, the bike was returned looking very second hand. I’m not one for jet-washing but it seemed the only option to get ...

Staff Blog: A Week of Two Wheels but not the Motorised Kind!

  I’ve not turned a wheel on the Yamaha Fazer8 for the last couple of weeks. Instead of being power assisted I’ve been producing my own power and cycled, along with a group of ten family and friends, from Dublin to Galway and back. We had a brilliant holiday, with plenty of hills to conquer, I’m sure Ireland must be ...

Staff Blog: Night Riding Fun

Is it just me or do your skills sharpen as you ride in the dark and your speed increase? Riding the 50 miles from Silverstone to home the other night I really enjoyed the dark journey. The lights on Yamaha Fazer8 give really good visibility and I noticed that I was using other cars, cats eye and road markings far ...
