Staff blog: In defence of the Burgman, pt 1

I’m experiencing mild frustration at some of the preconceptions I’ve encountered about the Burgman. If you’ve read my replies to reader comments under my previous blog entries, you may have detected a hint of defensiveness.   Although I’m really enjoying using the Burgman, for example, people keep telling me to get rid of it. So far five reader comments have ...

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

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: Enfield Clubman - I can see clearly now

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

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

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

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

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 ...
