Jeff Patrick, 03 June 2013 11:17

On a weekend where the sun sat high and my adrenaline ran free, it seemed appropriate in the infancy of middle age to throw my leg over my first ever Ducati and see what Hampshire's bountiful roads had to offer. The bike in question was a 2013 Panigale, which, with its £5,000 insurance excess had the temperature up before the ...

Across Vietnam on a Motorbike

Ben Loombe-Temple, 14 September 2012 16:21

Like many people in the UK I’m a massive fan of Top Gear. One of my favourite episodes of the show has got to be the Vietnam special, where the three chaps all bought a motorbike in Saigon and rode them up to Halong Bay.

My first sportsbike

Neil Manning, 28 April 2010 08:05

Having taken my test at the ripe old age of 42, I played safe and rode a brand new Suzuki Bandit 650SA. Having mastered the basics of riding a bike I then wanted a bit more power and moved up to the 1250 Bandit, again brand new. I had found my heaven. I have not sat behind the wheel of ...
