Video: Nobody mistreats a Street Triple like this guy

Funny French stuntist Julien Welsch has at last produced a sequel to his classic Extreme Triumph Street Triple Offroad video. He's cool and we like the way he's not too proud to include his screw ups! Filmed in Morocco it took six months to produce, including 11 days shooting and required specially-made 17in 'bucket' tyres. Enjoy!

Video: Icon take the Triumph Tiger 800 off-road

Ever wondered how good a Triumph Tiger 800 really is off-road? Well, just… just… watch this. Undoubtedly the best advert Triumph's ever had, and they didn't even have to shoot it themselves. Sit back, crack a beer, enjoy this epic half hour odyssey from US gear brand Icon. If you don't want a Tiger 800 after this… we're impressed!

World's top 5 worst exhausts

There's little doubt we are leaving the age of the aftermarket end-can. With legislation tightening, Daily Mail readers not going deaf in sufficient numbers and many simply becoming annoyed by the sound of their own engine spinning at an apparent 46,000rpm let alone anyone else's, the first rung of the bike modification ladder is rotting away. A decade ago such ...

What KTM taught Bajaj about promoting its new Pulsar 220

Paint it orange, ride it lairy: it's a tried and trusted sales technique for KTM, whose partnership with Indian giant Bajaj has yielded the new Duke 125 and access to a wonderfully cost-efficient supply chain for the Austrian firm. Allowing the Pune-based firm to copy its marketing methods is the most obvious form of payback. It's hard to see how ...

Video: the Ducati Diavel that went racing

It's got the power to out-drag a Ducati 1198 and it can out-brake one too. So why is nobody racing the highly-acclaimed new Ducati Diavel? Well, several reasons actually, but thinking it through would have taken all the fun out of finding out. You can find out more about exactly how this experiment ended up in next week's MCN.

What filling up in Malawi reveals about the F800GS

Here’s a great argument for the superiority of the F800GS over its bigger brother, the R1200GS. It’s lighter, goes further on a tank of gas, is easier to pick up when you (inevitably) drop it, and it’s even fun at filling up time. Where’s the filler cap? Not buried under the tankbag, no sirree! Mega handy when you’re going for ...

Three ways to load a bike for transporting

Wrong Wrong Right When you've suffered the indignity -­ and expense -­ of a motorcycle falling over in a van you want to make sure it will never, ever happen again. And that's after you've shot a couple of vertebrae out of place trying to get the bike in the van. Muscle power and string can conquer all, but when ...

Esoteric riding skills no5: stunt washing

We’d all rather ride than wash our bikes, right? Now, with the simple expedient of learning a few simple additional skills you need no longer choose between the two. Ideally not practiced on a bike with a gaping air intake right in the water’s way, but then evidently that doesn’t matter much either. NB – there’s some irrelevant stunt riding ...
