Staff Blog: Natural order restored

I thought I was done for winter. After a couple of weeks on holiday I’d not got back into the habit of riding to work every day, thanks to my insistence that I would only ride when I wanted to, not because I felt I needed to. There’s also my reluctance to get the Triumph coated in winter cack as ...

Staff blog: Garage blues

As you’ll all, no doubt, have noticed, winter has arrived. And as you’ll all equally no doubt know, winter is a time for garages. Though I’m planning to run the Tiger Sport through as much of this year’s cold and slime as possible, there’s no getting away from the fact that, for a fair proportion of this winter the Triumph ...

Staff Blog: Triumph Street Triple R at Silverstone

  Two years ago, MCN Consumer Editor Tony Hoare almost died after an accident at Cadwell Park. He hadn't been back on track since, until he took his Triumph Street Triple R for a trackday on the International Circuit at Silverstone. brightcove.createExperiences(); BLOG13 | STREET13

Staff blog: Fourth time lucky!

First of all, I need to say thanks for all the emails I've received over the past few days. I've had a ton of comments, tips, suggestions and offers of free training since my piece in Wednesday's paper on failing my mod one test (for the third time). I have to admit to keeping something under my hat (helmet?), though: ...

Staff Blog: First long ride (and in the sun, too!)

It seems I couldn’t have picked a better time to finally get out on two wheels! The sun’s beaming down, I’m sitting in the press office at Snetterton, and the little Yamaha R125 is parked outside. I’ve made my first decent length run on it to get here, knocking back the 70 miles from Peterborough in just under an hour ...

Staff blog: Burgman v Tmax: the jury's out

One or two readers have commented that they doubt the Burgman 650 is as good as some other big scooters out there, like Yamaha’s Tmax or BMW’s C600 Sport. This week I’ll be finding out.   I'm doing a group test of six big scooters, also including the Honda Integra, Aprilia SRV850 and BMW C650GT.   I’ll be doing my 160-mile commute on each of ...

Staff Blog: In search of confidence

I’ve started to try and get to the bottom of the confidence issue I reported in the paper last week, which has left me with chicken strips on the Street Triple R’s Pirelli tyres. First step was to order some Dunlop Sportsmart tyres. I’m not blaming my drained  confidence on the standard Pirelli Diablo Corsas - but I’ve never ridden ...

Staff blog: I've got to stay up - someone on the internet doesn't like the Burgman

Every time I write a blog on the Burgman, I seem to become embroiled in debate with critics of the scooter.   I don’t know why I feel the need to convince others to like it. It reminds me of that joke about internet arguments, where a wife asks her husband if he’s coming to bed and he says: “No. ...

Staff Blog: Hyperstrada at Snetterton and beyond

I took my Hyperstrada for a blast around the Snetterton 300 circuit on Monday – my second trackday of the year on the Ducati. I was there helping fellow MCN-er, Andy Davidson, who was doing his first ever trackday on his long term Kawasaki Z800. It’s easy to take trackdays for granted when you do a lot of them, but ...
