Staff Bikes: Ducati Multistrada - What a year!

That’s it. Time to send my Multistrada 1200S back. And I’ve never been sadder to see a bike go. It fits into my life perfectly and that’s saying something as I’ve owned, run and tested just about every single bike built in the last 17 years. Even after running two Multistrada 1200s (the first one was written off by a ...

Staff bikes: MV Agusta Brutale - Life's more fun naked

It's been an amazing year with a bike that managed to combine a muscular engine with fantastic styling and almost daily use, including commuting and lovely trips on some amazing British roads. The huge 23-litre fuel tank gives an easy 220-mile range - brilliant for a naked bike which is comfortable enough for all-day riding. Collecting the bike from the ...

Staff bikes: Triumph Tiger 800 - Tiger’s stripes well earned

Riding a motorcycle from Peterborough to Brussels and back in a day in November is no picnic. The 600 miles aren’t the issue, but being cold is. Even with good riding kit, draughts start to creep in and on a long trip, once you’re cold, you’re cold for a long time. To prepare the Tiger I wired in a connector ...

Staff bikes: Suzuki V-Strom 650 - Brussels: Further than you think!

I thought Brussels was an easy day’s ride from MCN’s Peterborough HQ, so was first to agree to join senior reporter Steve Farrell on his rabble-rousing EU protest ride last month. In my brain, I foresaw a quick blat to Dover, a tootle down the E40 from Calais, chips and mayonnaise for lunch followed by some shouting at MEPs then ...

Staff bikes: Yamaha Super Tenere - The continent-trotter

The wheels of the big Yamaha Super Tenere have barely stopped turning. It’s been into France, Belgium and Germany for the Nurburgring WSB round followed by a jaunt down to Magny Cours for another WSB race. In between I’ve been to the depths of Devon to Dartmouth and it also got me to Snetterton for a track day, and that’s ...

Staff bikes: Victory Cross Country - Victory on a roll

After six months with the Cross Country, I finally get to stretch its legs on a 1300-mile tour of Spain and Portugal. It turned out to be an eventful trip with plenty of ups and downs. The ups start on our first full day in northern Spain, heading for the mountains on the N621, a fabulous twist of Tarmac that ...

Staff bikes: KTM Duke 125 - If you ask an expert...

In my hands the MCN award-winning 125 Duke has proved to be a reliable commuter, tourer and general muck-about bike. It has impressed me. But would it impress a half-decent rider? I handed the keys to MCN senior road tester and NW200 veteran Adam Child. After a quick blast, a few stoppies, a burn-out and valiant attempts at a wheelie, ...

Staff bikes: Suzuki GSR750 - GSR takes on the Nurburgring

Rising at 5:30am on a day off isn’t exactly what I’d call relaxing, but with the GSR already loaded up and sat waiting patiently in the garage and the Nurburgring as the finishing point for the day I was up surprisingly quick. Meeting my Dad’s mate Dave at Peterborough services we then met my Dad somewhere on the M20 before ...

Staff bikes: Suzuki GSX-R750 - Viva el Gixer!

Now that's what I call a summer trip. 3397.6 miles in two weeks, on a bike designed for the track, but absolutely perfect for everything else too. From the monotonous motorways of France to the stunning switchbacks of Andorra, the city streets of Barcelona and trips to beaches in Ibiza, never once did I wish I was on another bike, ...
