Staff Blog: up close and personal with the Hog

Ped Baker, 31 May 2013 14:53

Now I’ve had the Street Bob for a couple of weeks I’ve had the chance to do something I suspect many other Harley owners do – park it on the drive, grab a beer and paw over the details that make the Motor Company one of the world’s biggest and best-loved motorcycle brands... 1.

Staff Blog: Are Harley's cool?

Ped Baker, 24 April 2013 16:36

A couple of years ago I asked an MCN work experience girl what she thought of motorcyclists. I was hoping she’d use words like ‘cool’, ‘exciting’, perhaps even ‘sexy’ but instead she said, “They’re all old blokes... you think they could be a bit of alright and then they take their helmets off... and they’re all my dad’s age.” She ...

My longterm Harley-Davidson Street Bob Dark Custom has turned up this morning. No camp metal flake, trinkets or radio here! Old Skool chopper styling looks ace but it could do with some louder pipes and those chrome bits have to go... BLOG13 | STREETBOB13

Yamaha T-Max packs punch but not practicality

Ped Baker, 29 December 2011 15:00

The ‘fine-handling scooter’ ethos has kept the T-Max on the top of the sales charts since it first appeared in 2001 but MCN’s world first test suggests its reign may be limited – by concentrating on performance, Yamaha is lagging seriously behind rivals in terms of practicality. There’s no doubting the T-Max’s performance though. The T-Max still offers handling and ...

Staff bikes: Triumph Tiger 800 - Tiger’s stripes well earned

Ped Baker, 23 December 2011 11:00

Riding a motorcycle from Peterborough to Brussels and back in a day in November is no picnic. The 600 miles aren’t the issue, but being cold is. Even with good riding kit, draughts start to creep in and on a long trip, once you’re cold, you’re cold for a long time. To prepare the Tiger I wired in a connector ...

Staff bikes: Triumph Tiger 800 - Tiger hits Spain

Ped Baker, 07 September 2011 12:31

After being enthralled by the round-the-world tales in our free Adventure supplement a couple of weeks ago I was inspired to do something similar on the Tiger 800.
