Triumph Daytona 675R initial thoughts

I've had the Triumph Daytona 675R for about a month now, and I have to say it is absolutely brilliant. Having come from a 2010 675, I wasn't sure what to expect, and to be honest, I found the standard 675 a little underwhelming. Not in terms of ride, but in terms of the way it made me feel. The ...

Suzuki GSR750 comfort seat

I've had my GSR750 supplied by the superb team at Crescent in Verwood for a year now and have found it uncomfortable after about 40 miles riding. After searching and talking to upholstery companies I decided to go for a total replacement seat from SHAD. The seat has changed a short range streetbike in to a long range sports tourer. Combined ...

Honda CBR600F 12 month report

I bought my CBR exactly 12 months ago and have done nearly 20,000 miles on it in all weathers. It was a split choice between a the CBR or an ER6 - I think I made the right choice. You can ride around town at 15mph or go a bit crazy at the top end. At a regular 75-80mph I get 55 mpg ...

Kawasaki ER six month appraisal

I’ve had the ER6n for over six months now and it’s just gone through its 4000 mile service with no issues. The only thing to note is I’d overfilled it with oil which seemed to have a slight affect on the MPG. Having said all that I’ve just managed 67.9mpg on my last 100 mile ride which is a personal best. It ...

Staff bikes: Honda Hornet 600 - MCT suspension

I don’t think I’m alone in being a little bit scared of suspension jargon. I’m in awe of the guys who can bounce a bike up and down and tell if it’s any good or not on feel alone. But despite not being able to describe the problem in technical terms, I’ve known for a while that my Hornet’s suspension ...

Staff bikes: Honda Hornet 600 - pitted forks

My Hornet's forks - which are actually used forks from a breakers, following a crash a couple of years ago - were pitted badly on the stanchions. The suspension is so tired that I want to get it looked at by a professional, but it's not worth doing this until that’s fixed.   I considered everything from biting the bullet and ordering new OE parts ...
