Staff Blog: New Dog, Newer Tricks

Steve Hunt, 04 October 2013 11:43

I’ve been riding a ‘big bike’ for twelve months now and the last eight of them have been spent working for the world’s largest motorcycling publication. I am very aware of how enviable a position this puts me in amongst the British motorcycling community and whenever I mention to someone whom I have just met about what it is that ...

Staff Blog: F800GT - A feeling of belonging.

Steve Hunt, 07 August 2013 15:36

The grey, British skies seemed determined to quell my excited mood and, as I joined the queue for the channel tunnel, the drizzle misted across my visor and I wasn't entirely sure that a six hour sprint across France was the most sensible way in which to pop my touring cherry. The panicked security guard, running around the cafe asking ...

Staff Blog: Back from Bavaria

Steve Hunt, 12 July 2013 09:34

That's it. My Garmisch trip is all over. It was a fantastic few days, made all the better by a glorious, bookend of rides through France, Germany and a little bit of Austria. I've written a longer report for the paper (don't forget Apple and Google editions!) which will be published in a couple of weeks - but whilst I was ...

Staff Blog: Bavaria and back on the Beemer

Steve Hunt, 19 June 2013 12:57

The BMW F800GT is a tourer. So far I’ve covered just short of three thousand miles worth of short trips to and from various parts of the country - living out of the panniers for the occasional odd night over here and there - but I’m yet to have dipped my toe into the Grand Tour side of the bike ...

Staff Blog: Deflated at Donington

Steve Hunt, 05 June 2013 13:25

Being responsible for the online aspect of Motorcyclenews, I don’t get much of a chance to leave the office and the phosphorous glow of the monitor screens. So, when I had the opportunity to spend three days at Donington Park for the World Superbikes I leapt at the chance. It was work – of course – I would have to ...

Staff Blog: Bagging the F800GT

Steve Hunt, 16 May 2013 13:44

Another weekend, another trip down to Somerset to catch-up with friends and family. It was also another weekend when the heavens have opened and I’ve had to ride the F800GT down in the pouring rain. And hailstones. Come to think of it, I don’t think that there has been a time when I have had a ride where I have ...

Staff Blog: Nailing The Basics

Steve Hunt, 22 April 2013 10:31

With the sun threatening to finally breakthrough and bring back some semblance of normality to the spring climate, now is the time that most riders come out of their enforced hibernation and return to the road. But rusty riders on defrosting roads don’t always make for the best of combinations and it’s these riders that the California Superbike School are ...

Living with the BMW F800GT

Steve Hunt, 17 April 2013 11:45

After a month of ownership and a few emails and messages coming in from people who’ve read my longterm reports in the MCN paper I thought it would be a good start to this blog if I responded to these queries here – mainly because I am sure that the questions asked and their answers would be of interest to ...
