Staff bikes: Honda Hornet 600 - Braking the cycle of abuse

James Keen, 27 October 2010 16:43

My plan to rejuvenate my much-abused Hornet 600 hasn’t progressed as fast as I would have liked. Getting married, a fantastic GSX-R600 and general laziness are to blame. Having said that, I have finally got around to sorting out the brakes. When I put the bike in for an MOT, I was given an advisory about the warped discs. So ...

Staff bikes: Suzuki GSX-R600 - setting it up to suit

James Keen, 23 June 2010 10:10

The GSX-R600 is great fun on the open road, but at slow speed the riding position can be torture - supersport 600s aren't known for their comfort and in fairness that's not what they're about. But that said I've managed to drastically reduce muscle ache in two simple steps - and without spending a penny.  The bars are low of ...
