How to make your bike go better on the cheap

Nothing is ever free is it? No – but some things come pretty damn close. After laying out for the price of a bike and all the associated riding gear, anything which helps boost the bike’s and the rider’s performance with the investment of a few minutes’ time, or a few quid, has to be worth it. Are we talking ...

How to prepare your bike for a trackday

Why bother? As road riders we are quick to learn our limits. Road furniture (eg telegraph poles, hedges etc), other road users and the law help curb our enthusiasm for riding fast. But on an open track, where there is no oncoming traffic or imposed speed limit, your bike can be ridden faster and harder. That’s all great for improving ...

How to prepare for your first trackday

Trackdays are just for nutters and racers, aren’t they? Yes, and no. Trackdays are popular with the racing fraternity because race practice is very limited – how and where else can a racer set up their bike? You have to remember that even the quickest rider had their first trackday and, like you, were probably nervous. But don’t forget to ...

How to keep your tyres in good health

But there’s nothing to look after on a tyre… Not true. Imagine what would happen if one of your tyres failed to work at 70mph. Anything that keeps tyres in tip-top condition is worth every penny or second of your time. Taking a good look at both tyres when you lube the chain is an easy way of maintaining their ...

How to keep your licence spotless

How can I be spared? Remember this if you’re stopped by a copper: he may just want to offer some words of advice. A hostile response could turn this into a ticket or court appearance, or at best, a Vehicle Defect Rectification Notice (VDRN) and a ‘producer’, which means the inconvenience of producing your documents later at a police station. ...

How to buy riding kit that fits

What should I look for when buying gear? When it comes to leather, it will eventually break in to become comfortable. It becomes so because it stretches or the material breaks down from continual wear. So if a pair of gloves are loose in the first place then they can soon become uncomfortable. In the case of helmets, a loose ...

How to buy a cheap winter bike

Why a winter hack? It’s understandable that many of us don’t want to subject our ultimate joy to the ravages of winter road conditions. Crushed, wet rock salt is as corrosive as acid. But riding bikes is in our blood and we need that kick – whether it’s traffic-busting to work or for sheer enjoyment. The answer, as many have ...

How to ride in the dark

The twilight zone As the evenings draw in, we have no choice but to spend more time riding in the dark. And as daylight turns to the black of night, all motorcyclists face new challenges – most not seen until the last moment. The onset of twilight mars vision, Even on full beam, the headlight seems to give no extra ...

How to ride safely in the wet

Why would I want to ride in the wet? Because it can improve your skills in the dry – and because whether you like it or not, even the sunniest weather can change for the worse when you’re miles from home. Wet roads require a greater level of skill to deal with than dry roads – and any lack of ...

How to prepare your bike for winter

Make an early start Winter roads gritting and low temperatures that cause condensation and allow moisture to hang around is a perfect recipe for corrosion. Your bike will constantly be under attack from the elements – unless you mothball it for winter. But that’s too dull to contemplate, so instead fight back. With a little preparation, it’s possible to protect your machine from ...
