Staff bikes: KTM 450EXC - shattered plans!

Everytime I fire up my KTM450 EXC-F there’s a feeling that only a pure race bike can bring. The way it jumps on the sidestands responding to every angry rise and fall of the  revs, the way it barks angrily even out of the standard can just gets me going everytime.     Following a full service at Gear4 KTM in Market ...

Staff bikes: Triumph Street Triple - Conquering the capital

Street Triple 1 : London 0 London is a congested network of road works, cycle lanes, tight, un-filterable traffic lights, one-way systems and road rage, all vigilantly policed by a swarm of unblinking CCTV cameras. The perfect place to test the “Street” in Street Triple. On a rainy autumn night last week I leapt aboard the Triumph and ploughed down ...

Staff bikes: Suzuki GSX-R600 - Sneaking a ride

With my Street Triple missing a footpeg and the office missing a Web Producer, there was only one thing to do: steal James Keen’s GSX-R600. My biking past is littered with sports tourers, an SV650 here, a CBF1000 there, but never dedicated sports bikes.

Staff bikes blog – Victory Hammer S: 48mpg!

When you don’t have a fuel gauge, you get tuned in to how many miles you can do on a tank. My Hammer S usually gets around 125 miles before I fill up, returning 38mpg on a country roads blat – fairly respectable for a big engine like the Victory 1731cc lump.

Staff bikes: BMW R1200GS - 3000 miles in 2 weeks
