Staff bikes: Ducati Monster 1100 Evo - Monster's hot in the city

The first Thursday of each month is Italian night at London's Ace Cafe, so before the 160-mile round trip becomes a teeth-grittingly sub-zero affair, I made the effort to head down after work a few weeks back. The promise of clear skies and good company kept spirits high on the 5.30pm slog down the A1, thankfully against the tide of London's ...

Staff bikes: Ducati Monster 1100 Evo - The modern cafe racer

Over the months that I've owned the Monster, many have asked me "What's it like?" My default answer is "A real, good, honest motorcycle". Which sounds like damning it with faint praise; that's far from my intention. What I mean to say is that this stripped back, stylish, air-cooled Italian V-twin, punting out a modest 100bhp at the crank, is - for ...

Staff bikes: Enfield Clubman - I can see clearly now

I have an addictive personality; I horde things, lots of things. There are approximately 30 pairs of shoes scattered around my house, my garage looks like a library, the loft is full of old C90 compilation tapes and LPs... and now that I own a bike which demands the use of an open-face lid I fear I might've started a ...

Staff bikes: Enfield Clubman - Coppers can't touch me!

My previous entry, on the subject of top speed runs on the road, was met with a few comments on the logic of my admission to speeds well in excess of 85mph on the queen's highway. Well, after taking a colleague to work who had the MCN Ride Logger iPhone app activated in his pocket, I reckon the boys in ...

Staff bikes: Enfield Clubman - Top speed test for 28bhp missile

My Enfield Bullet Clubman has no rev counter and nothing but an ‘old-fashioned’ dial by way of speedometer. And once above a certain speed the needle can wander by as much as 10mph either way. A previous model I rode maxed out at an indicated 82mph in top gear; this one will hit an indicated 95mph before the rev limiter. ...
