Is this the end for Mallory Park?

Andy Davidson, 30 September 2013 16:36

Mallory Park racing circuit has been placed into administration and all future race meetings have been cancelled. The move comes after recent legal action was taken by Hinckley and Bosworth District Council for breaching noise levels and increasing noise complaints. MCN reported last month on the recent £2500 fine plus £23,000 court costs imposed on Mallory Park Motorsport Limited as ...

Staff Blog: Not so naked now

Andy Davidson, 10 June 2013 17:02

I have finally fitted a screen from German firm MRA. The aftermarket plastic is not specifically designed for the Z800 but is a racing screen built for newer, aggressively-styled naked bikes. I fitted the screen in about 15 minutes with an Allen key and a screwdriver in the office car park. Everything smoothly slotted into place and the shield looks ...

Yamaha’s ‘Dark Side’

Andy Davidson, 31 May 2013 12:12

Last year’s Cologne Motorcycle Show saw Yamaha make bold claims about what we could expect from them in the near future. The firm unveiled a slightly bizarre wire and engine ‘sculpture’ centred around an all-new, three-cylinder engine, dubbed the ‘P3’. Yamaha hasn’t given much away about the new motor, but they are very clear about its significance – openly admitting ...

What is stopping you from heading out on an adventure?

Andy Davidson, 06 March 2013 13:14

This week’s MCN featured Ian Coates, a 69 year-old great grandfather. Ian left home 14 years ago on what was supposed to be a four-month trip. He and his Africa Twin have just returned to the UK after a 250,000-mile ride across six continents. So what is stopping you from chucking it all in and heading out on your very own ...

Have super nakeds become too powerful?

Andy Davidson, 06 March 2013 13:08

KTM has officially confirmed it will launch the all-new 185bhp Duke 1290 in October. But is that much power really necessary in a naked bike; is the naked class becoming too powerful and perhaps unnecessary? pollcomment

The Long Ride Home

Andy Davidson, 21 December 2012 08:30

In 2009 Nathan Millward set off from Sydney, Australia on an old Australian Post bike called Dot with the hope of one day reaching England. Over the following nine months he rode 23,000 miles, through 18 countries and at a cruising speed of less than 40 miles-per-hour. What separates this trip from most is that it was done with two ...

Nothing grey about these

Andy Davidson, 03 August 2012 09:24

The 400cc sportsbike is an exotic delicacy from a far off land. Shipped to the UK under the banner of ‘grey import’, these beautifully wrapped, miniature GSX-Rs, CBRs, VFRs and FZRs looked like they’d been ridden straight from the Suzuka pitlane at the Suzuka 8-hour and were hugely sought after in early and mid 90s. The UK was flooded with ...
