‘Grave concerns’ about graphic safety ad

Steve Farrell, 02 July 2013 09:47

A leading riders’ group has said it has “grave concerns” about a graphic new safety ad.  The cinema ad by Transport for London shows a motorcyclist lying on his back in the road. While paramedics work to save him, he says to the camera: “I’m going into cardiac arrest now. Silly place to overtake, really. Still, you live and learn ...

Staff blog: The myth of the Burgman's small tank

Steve Farrell, 22 May 2013 11:23

I've established the Suzuki Burgman 650 ABS Executive has a much longer tank range than it’s credited with.   Some reports have estimated it at 150 miles, probably because the fuel warning starts flashing at about 130. In fact you’ve got a bar left on the gauge and at least 40 miles in the tank at that point.   There’s ...

Staff blog: A lecture from the rozzers

Steve Farrell, 08 May 2013 12:17

You might think your licence would be safe on a scooter but I’ve already been in trouble with the rozzers a week after picking mine up.   The Suzuki Burgman 650 ABS Executive has two automatic modes: Drive and Power. The latter is surprisingly, addictively brisk.   Pulling out of a petrol station on the way to work yesterday morning, ...

10 worst and five best promo videos

Steve Farrell, 26 April 2013 07:00

1. Kawasaki Z800Bystanders gawp at the new Z800 and take photographs in this preposterous video from Kawasaki Australia. It's as though they've found a portal to another universe and not a mass production motorcycle. A trucker radios his mates and weirdly gets a nod from the passing rider. Two hairy Antipodeans applaud and give thumbs up to the parked bike. Clearly ...
