Yamaha XJ6 Diversion F

Dale Taylor, 02 October 2013 13:15

I passed my motorbike test on August 23 this year, it took 10 weeks exactly from start to finish. I was so excited about being able to get out and about on the road and I had been researching bikes for weeks. I narrowed it down to a Suzuki GSX650F but when I went to see the bike at a local ...

Triumph Daytona 675R initial thoughts

jeffpatrick, 24 August 2013 12:25

I've had the Triumph Daytona 675R for about a month now, and I have to say it is absolutely brilliant. Having come from a 2010 675, I wasn't sure what to expect, and to be honest, I found the standard 675 a little underwhelming. Not in terms of ride, but in terms of the way it made me feel. The ...

Suzuki GSR750 comfort seat

gtufnell, 23 August 2013 22:23

I've had my GSR750 supplied by the superb team at Crescent in Verwood for a year now and have found it uncomfortable after about 40 miles riding. After searching and talking to upholstery companies I decided to go for a total replacement seat from SHAD. The seat has changed a short range streetbike in to a long range sports tourer. Combined ...

Kymco K-Pipe 50cc

Tobias Milliken, 01 July 2013 18:36

I'm 16 and just got my first motorcycle - The K-Pipe 50cc. This bike is great! It looks and sounds very nice, but since I have owned it I've noticed a major flaw in the bike. Hills are it's worst enemies! If you run into an incline in 3rd or 4th gear (the gears you need in fast moving traffic) the ...

First middle age fumblings with a Ducati

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. Now if you’ve seen that episode then you’ll know just how amazing that experience looked. ...

Honda CBR600F 12 month report

Anonymous, 07 July 2012 10:11

I bought my CBR exactly 12 months ago and have done nearly 20,000 miles on it in all weathers. It was a split choice between a the CBR or an ER6 - I think I made the right choice. You can ride around town at 15mph or go a bit crazy at the top end. At a regular 75-80mph I get 55 mpg ...

Kawasaki ER six month appraisal

DazLoczy, 02 July 2012 14:52

I’ve had the ER6n for over six months now and it’s just gone through its 4000 mile service with no issues. The only thing to note is I’d overfilled it with oil which seemed to have a slight affect on the MPG. Having said all that I’ve just managed 67.9mpg on my last 100 mile ride which is a personal best. It ...

Adventure bikes for me please

james stewart, 14 June 2012 16:01

I'll confess I'm a GS Adventure rider, but I have got my eyes on a shiny new 990 at the moment - awaiting test ride, then I'll make the choice. My GS has been nothing but bullet proof. I know it has a few achilles heels, such as the sidestand switch but overall I have a big grin when I ...

Supermotos - impractical?

sliabhrossa, 17 April 2012 21:42

I disagree with the continuous comments I read in MCN of supermotos being impractical. I live in the real world with a real budget, I have a Honda XR650R supermoto with USD forks and yokes from a CRF, she has an akrapovic full exhaust and a nice Mikuni carb, wavy discs and a few other bits. I spent about €3000 on her. ...
