He has a TT win under his belt and has joined the elite 131mph average club, just missing out on a senior podium spot this year. Our very own Senior MCN road tester is only in his second year, and is on sharp learning ...

Staff blog: The toughest test ever!

Adam Child, 03 May 2013 13:54

This year is going to epic, one I’m going to look back on for years to come and it’s mainly going to be down to my lovely ZX-6R. Just last week I took delivery of my new Kawasaki and unusually for me, I’m treating her with kid-gloves, nice and gentle for the first few hundred miles, before unleashing its full ...

Used Buying Guide: Kawasaki ZX-10R

Adam Child, 20 March 2013 07:30

We can safely say Kawasaki didn’t really produce an out-and-out sports bike with the ZX-9R, especially towards the end of its life cycle, when it was facing competition from the mighty Yamaha R1 and Suzuki GSX-R1000. The old 900 was more of a soft sports bike with great power and comfort rather than a cutting edge sportster with razor sharp ...

'How I bagged a Britten'

Adam Child, 25 January 2013 07:00

Britten owner and dedicated biker, Kevin Grant, bought his first bike aged 15, then got into racing and collecting bikes. How did you come to own a Britten?I picked it up in 1996, or '97, I think. It was just a quirk of fate really. We were going to a jubilee meeting at Assen, and I was trying to organise ...

MCN rides the Britten V1000

Adam Child, 24 January 2013 07:30

‘Outstanding’, ‘amazing’, and ‘work of art’ are all labels liberally applied to the exotic race bikes built by John Britten, but in reality the Britten deserves a unique accolade to celebrate its existence. In many peoples’ minds it’s simply the greatest bike ever made. For me it transcends everything, it’s a dream bike, it was the poster bike I had ...

2012 Aprilia Dorsoduro ridden

Adam Child, 19 March 2012 15:49

Aprilia’s revised exotic Dorsoduro 1200 has lost weight, gained some Italian ponies and now has a three-way traction control as standard. If you thought the Supermoto scene was drying up you’d be wrong. Aprilia are seven times world supermoto champions, and the Dorsoduro has been a success story since its launch in 750 format back in 2008. It’s Aprilia’s third best-selling ...

Ducati 848 Challenge blog: Silverstone

Adam Child, 28 September 2011 12:30

I couldn’t turn down racing in the 848 Challenge at Silverstone in front of packed BSB crowd but it was a baptism of fire, thrown in at the deep end learning a new track and new bike, but great fun. First practice didn’t really go to plan, I wasn’t clicking with the 848 and was still learning the huge 3.6 ...

Oliver's Mount racing blog: Barry Sheene Festival

Adam Child, 12 July 2011 13:07

My road racing season continues but this time at the tight and twisty Oliver’s Mount, Scarborough. Oliver’s Mount is the last true road racing circuit left in the UK, nearly 2.4 miles of park road, narrow in places with a few jumps thrown in for good measure. I was there competing in the modern open class, as part of the ...
