Staff bikes: Yamaha Super Tenere - The continent-trotter

The wheels of the big Yamaha Super Tenere have barely stopped turning. It’s been into France, Belgium and Germany for the Nurburgring WSB round followed by a jaunt down to Magny Cours for another WSB race. In between I’ve been to the depths of Devon to Dartmouth and it also got me to Snetterton for a track day, and that’s ...

Staff bikes: Suzuki GSR750 - GSR takes on the Nurburgring

Rising at 5:30am on a day off isn’t exactly what I’d call relaxing, but with the GSR already loaded up and sat waiting patiently in the garage and the Nurburgring as the finishing point for the day I was up surprisingly quick. Meeting my Dad’s mate Dave at Peterborough services we then met my Dad somewhere on the M20 before ...

Staff bikes - Honda Crossrunner: You never stop learning

Two thousand, three hundred and forty-seven miles can reveal a lot about a bike. Even about one you thought you already knew. Such has been my first couple of months with the Crossrunner. I picked it up in May having already sampled Honda's new VFR800-based crossover machine (their description, not mine) at the world press launch and at the time thought ...

Staff bikes: Suzuki GSR750 - Tail tidy improves GSR's rear

After riding the GSR for the first few miles there was only one modification that I could see needed to be made, to fit a tail tidy and get rid of the huge piece of plastic hanging off the rear end of the bike. (Although it does come in handy as a tea holder.) I went for a tail tidy ...

Staff bikes: Suzuki GSR750 - GSR shines at wet Brands Hatch

I’ve now been on two track days and on both there’s been rain. Despite the fact like most motorcyclists I don’t like rain (I don’t mind getting wet, it’s more the inconsistent grip levels) I decided the rain wasn’t going to ruin the latest one at Brands Hatch Indy – one of the Reclaim Our Tracks days run by Bike ...

Staff bikes: MV Agusta Brutale 920 - British GP puts Brutale under strain

Working at the British MotoGP round at Silverstone meant my MV Agusta Brutale test bike got a hard workout…and ended up looking like it had been buried at sea! The bike did more than 350 miles in three days as I was dashing between the office, home and the track; with many of the miles in the lashing rain that ...

Staff bikes: BMW G650GS - When different isn’t better

In my last update on the G650GS I’m riding this year, I mentioned how BMWs are different to other bikes in the detail. I said they were not always better but never without effort. Well, here’s an example : The indicator switch. The G650GS does not feature BMW’s famously different three-switch arrangement, with a button on each bar to activate ...
