Staff Bikes: Ducati Multistrada - loan leaves an impression

Getting my hands on the Editor’s Ducati Multistrada 1200 was meant to be for just one afternoon so I could do some advanced rider training, but after some begging it turned out to last nearly a week. The reason was simple…I bloody loved it and the thought of giving it back to Marc Potter, or indeed anyone, was horrible.    I’d ...

Staff bikes: XR1200X - control freak

I’ve been riding the XR1200 for a few weeks now and even though I’m smitten with it there’s still room for improvement. The first thing I’ve changed is the levers. The original Harley levers had a bizarre dog–leg shape that meant the backs were very close to my knuckles. Every time I changed gear I had to nearly remove my ...

Staff bikes: Suzuki GSX-R600 - MSV Rider Development Program

When the shiny new GSX-R600 turned up at the MCN office, people kept asking me what I was going to change on the bike. My answer was and is: Nothing. The fact is this bike is already a lot better than I am. If something needs to be improved on, it’s me.    That’s why – for less than the price ...

Staff bikes: BMW R1200GS - 3000 miles in 2 weeks

After 3000 miles in three weeks it's now the second time to top up the oil. It seems to use an awful lot of the golden stuff. I read on forums that this would be the case but didn't expect to have to put so much in. Only my two stroke lambretta uses more!    Pictured is the nifty little key ...

Staff Bikes: Victory Hammer S - Time for tea
