Staff bikes: Triumph Street Triple - Bits go on. Bits fall off

Dan Aspel, 29 September 2010 11:03

No sooner had I fitted a protective radiator cover to my Street Triple than my housemate backed his car into it. Forcefully. Lifting it from the mud and back onto its sidestand, surveying the bike in the Monday drizzle, there wasn’t much time to appreciate the irony. Luckily there wasn’t any apparent damage. Handlebars straight. Mirrors twisted but undamaged. No ...

Staff bikes: Victory Hammer S: Vic 'n chips

Chris Newbigging, 07 July 2010 17:00

For an upcoming long-term test feature in the print edition of MCN, I invited Harley owners out for a ride on my Victory Hammer S. Yesterday myself and three Harley owners headed to the coast to swap bikes, swap banter and see where 12 year-old upstart firm Victory fits next to Harley-Davidson, riding on 107 years of history and glamour. ...

Staff bikes: Enfield Clubman - I can see clearly now

Marc Abbott, 07 June 2010 10:14

I have an addictive personality; I horde things, lots of things. There are approximately 30 pairs of shoes scattered around my house, my garage looks like a library, the loft is full of old C90 compilation tapes and LPs... and now that I own a bike which demands the use of an open-face lid I fear I might've started a ...

Staff bikes: Yamaha TZR250 - On every other Sunday

Chris Newbigging, 02 June 2010 15:53

You’ll probably think I’m a bit of a slacker for not starting my TZR250 blog until I’ve already competed in three rounds of this season. Which is fair enough, but in my defence, the start of the season has been a whirlwind – the first three rounds were separated by just 12 days each. Even pre-season, it was hectic – ...

Staff bikes: Enfield Clubman - Top speed test for 28bhp missile

Marc Abbott, 12 May 2010 15:53

My Enfield Bullet Clubman has no rev counter and nothing but an ‘old-fashioned’ dial by way of speedometer. And once above a certain speed the needle can wander by as much as 10mph either way. A previous model I rode maxed out at an indicated 82mph in top gear; this one will hit an indicated 95mph before the rev limiter. ...

Staff bikes: BMW R1200RT - The RT doesn't disappoint

Andy Downes, 12 April 2010 15:00

I've just woken up in Moffat in Scotland after a great days ride up yesterday on the BMW R1200RT. There's nothing like a long trip to help you gel with a new bike and the RT didn't disappoint managing to combine comfort with more than enough fun. The route up here took me along the A68 through the Northumberland National ...

Staff bikes: BMW R1200RT - Ten days, 650 miles and all is cool…just wet

Andy Downes, 07 April 2010 14:16

At some point over the next few months I might get to find out what the BMW R1200RT I am running as a long term test bike is like to ride in the dry. So far, the bike has been out in the wet, the damp, the slightly less than torrential rain, torrential rain and farmers muck covered roads. I ...

Staff bikes: KTM 450EXC - This bike is all about the engine

Marc Potter, 01 April 2010 12:00

Ever since former MCN editor Adam Duckworth used to let me terrify myself on his KTM 450 SX-F, I’ve always lusted after a 450 to have in the garage. There’s something about the way KTM grabs you that means I’m now spending lunchtimes at Gear 4 in Market Deeping and filling up my garage with orange KTM carrier bags full of ...

Staff Bikes: Victory Hammer S - Time for tea

Chris Newbigging, 01 April 2010 09:33

This is only my second blog entry, and I’m already cheating by blogging on someone else’s Hammer activity. German magazine Motorrad has replicated BMW’s viral video for the S1000RR, where the superbike appears to pull a table cloth from under a fully laid table. There’s some doubt as to whether the BMW really did, but using a Victory Hammer, the ...
