Dark visors are illegal in Europe, too

Anonymous, 08 July 2001 00:00

IT’S easy to feel jealous of riders in the rest of Europe. There are no GATSOs in France. There are no speed limits on some stretches of German autobahn. And anyone can walk into their nearest dealer, buy a black visor and wear it on the road without fear of harassment from bored cops.But the irony is that dark visors ...

New Guzzi Le Mans ridden and rated

Anonymous, 17 June 2001 00:00

The new Le Mans is no longer a superbike like the one which first bore the name back in 1976. The cynics will see it as a marketing exercise by Aprilia, the new owners of Moto Guzzi’s 80-year-old factory in Mandello de Lario, as it’s little more than a V11 Sport with an added fairing. But hey, give the firm ...

What’s new on the 2001 955i

Anonymous, 06 May 2001 00:00

ENGINE: Essentially the new Daytona’s three-cylinder is the same basic lump as the old engine but there’s quite a lot of detail changes.It breathes better and is more efficient than the old engine which adds up to an extra 19bhp making it Europe’s most powerful production bike.The cylinder head is redesigned with 1mm larger inlet valves and 1mm smaller exhaust ...

First ride on Suzuki’s new GSX1400

Anonymous, 22 April 2001 00:00

YOU’D have thought the GSX1400 was a real knuckle-dragger of a bike. But there is surprisingly little of the Neanderthal about this big-bore beast.Wrapped around its huge, 1400cc, fuel-injected, oil-cooled motor is a steel, double-cradle frame that has just the right amount of flex to ease you in and out of those bends without throwing you any great handling surprises ...

Making a break from the norm with the BMW R1150R

Anonymous, 22 April 2001 00:00

WHEN I mentioned to someone that I was about to take delivery of a new BMW, the first question they asked was: " Which one? A three-series? " The reaction is understandable. BMW cars have a strong, sexy image built on the sporting performance of models like the M3 and M5 and distinctive roadsters such as the Z3 and the ...

Getting my 996 is a dream fulfilled

Anonymous, 08 April 2001 00:00

THE sight of the bike in front of me stopped me in my tracks and caused a sharp intake of breath inside my helmet. I had been waiting for this moment for a long time. Almost trembling with anticipation, I took the keys to a brand new Ducati 996 Biposto from the salesman. Or, more accurately, the keys to my ...

Sensible? Only if you want it to be

Anonymous, 18 March 2001 00:00

AS I straighten out of the left-hander, a VW Golf appears a few hundred yards ahead of me, going at a rate of knots. Just before the next bend, its brake lights flash, then its bodywork squats on one side as it screeches into the turn.Its driver probably thinks he’s coping pretty well with the tight hairpins and sheer rock ...
