Staff bikes: Honda Hornet 600 - MCT suspension

James Keen, 21 January 2011 10:30

I don’t think I’m alone in being a little bit scared of suspension jargon. I’m in awe of the guys who can bounce a bike up and down and tell if it’s any good or not on feel alone. But despite not being able to describe the problem in technical terms, I’ve known for a while that my Hornet’s suspension ...

Staff bikes: CBR600F - getting it up to scratch

Andy Downes, 09 December 2010 11:08

Faults with the old Honda CBR600F-W are few and far between. They are renown for bulletproof construction, reliability and apart from camchain tensioners failing, there is really only rotting downpipes to look out for.  Find a Honda CBR600F for sale After buying a 1998 Honda CBR600F back in February as a bike that will do a bit of everything, I ...

Staff bikes: Kawasaki GPz550 – A gut-wrenching tale

Steve Farrell, 07 October 2010 18:17

Every Sunday afternoon I try to restore my ‘bargain’ GPz550 to somewhere near acceptable condition. And on Sunday evenings I ask the internet how to undo whatever new damage I’ve caused. My latest handiwork is a sheared sump plug. When I last changed the oil, I replaced the rounded-off old plug with a swanky magnetic one. Unfortunately, because it’s hollow ...

Staff Bikes: Ducati Multistrada - The first 700 miles, again

Marc Potter, 30 September 2010 14:28

Since picking up my replacement Multistrada Sport arrived (the first one was written off by a colleague) its done some gentle running-in, a few trips out with the mrs, had a first service and been round Cadwell Park. Ducati claimed the bike is four bikes in one, and in its first 700-miles that has certainly been put to the test. ...

Staff bikes: Victory Hammer S: Vic 'n chips

Chris Newbigging, 07 July 2010 17:00

For an upcoming long-term test feature in the print edition of MCN, I invited Harley owners out for a ride on my Victory Hammer S. Yesterday myself and three Harley owners headed to the coast to swap bikes, swap banter and see where 12 year-old upstart firm Victory fits next to Harley-Davidson, riding on 107 years of history and glamour. ...

Staff bikes: Suzuki GSX-R600 - Thundersprint 2010

James Keen, 09 June 2010 14:59

I’m not a racer – I haven’t even done that many track days. So it was surreal to end up in the start line queue behind the likes of Chris Walker, Danny Webb and Steve Parrish ready to compete in this year’s Thundersprint.  Before the event I was getting mixed signals from other MCN staff, which didn't help the nerves. ...

Staff bikes: CBR600F - The proud (and skint) owner of a 1998 Honda CBR600F

Andy Downes, 07 June 2010 10:27

Nobody in the world is more relieved I have actually been successful in finding a new bike than those MCN staff who sit closest to me at work. No longer do they have to look at what I have just found on MCN Bikemart and pretend to be interested. Or listen to me legitimising why I could ‘actually save money’ ...

Staff bikes: BMW R1200RT - 6000 mile service in ten weeks

Andy Downes, 03 June 2010 17:48

Just ten weeks after I was lucky enough to get my hands on the 2010 BMW R1200RT as my long term test bike it has been in for the 6000 miles service. The result is a bike that now feels as fresh as new again despite the speedy rate the miles have been racked up.  The gearbox is loosening up, ...

Staff bikes: Victory Hammer S - Hey you, pipe down at the back!

Chris Newbigging, 03 June 2010 16:37

The genuine Victory accessory performance 2-1 exhaust on my Hammer S looks lovely. Deep chrome, neat welds and a shape that really suits the hot-rod shape of my Victory. So I’m gutted that I’ve damaged it. Not maliciously, or in an act of stupidity, but through enjoying it a bit too much. The hero blobs don’t take much to dispense ...

Staff bikes: Kawasaki Versys – The return of the Versys

Liam Marsden, 28 May 2010 11:15

If a man by the name of Sam Pinney ever asks to borrow your bike, say no. Bad things happen. Everything was going well until I was informed some scamp in London had tried to steal the Versys. Here are Sam's thoughts on the Versys and his account of the attempted theft: "I like riding in London. It’s exciting, stimulating and ...
