Dunlop and Michelin are castaways on the Island

Anonymous, 02 June 2000 00:00

WHEN you’re talking about GPs and WSB, Michelin and Dunlop are the only names that matter in tyres. The two firms enjoy a monopoly in world championship racing, and no-one uses anything else. But when you bring the Isle of Man TT into the equation, possibly the toughest testing ground for tyres in the world, the French and British firms ...

And on the seventh day… we all go on a large one

Anonymous, 02 June 2000 00:00

IT is quite conceivable that you will have seen a piano used as a sidecar before – in your wildest dreams.If you pinch yourself and the tinkling of the ivories continues to get louder, you’re almost certainly on the Isle of Man during TT fortnight. And if that piano combination is passed by a loon on the back wheel of ...

Made you look, made you stare

Anonymous, 26 May 2000 00:00

THE family of Mexicans sitting to my left in their old Ford pick-up are just plain staring. In fact, from the look on their faces you would think I had just pulled a gun on them.The bloke to my right is literally hanging out of the window of his Honda sports car. " Damn! That’s what I call a streetbike, ...

John Wayne would be turning in his grave

Anonymous, 26 May 2000 00:00

I’M at the top of a 10,000ft mountain, the equivalent of a third of the way up Everest. It’s May, but there are deep snow drifts all around and miles of narrow, rocky trails bordered by sheer drops. Somehow, I managed to ride here. But that was the easy part. Now I’ve got to get back down without taking any ...

Seven days, seven events, one emotion

Anonymous, 26 May 2000 00:00

THEY say you can have too much of a good thing. I disagree. Maybe I’ve just got an addictive personality, but when I find something I love doing, I just want to keep doing it. Riding bikes is one example. I try to satisfy my addiction every day, whether it’s riding to work or something more serious, but sometimes that’s ...

Why half an inch matters

Anonymous, 19 May 2000 00:00

TYRE size is one of the burning issues in 500 GPs this year. If you’ve watched any of the recent rounds on TV you’ll have heard commentators going on about 16.5 and 17-inch rear wheels. So what’s the difference and which is best?Aussie Garry McCoy was using a 16.5 when he took his Red Bull Yamaha to victory in the ...

Beat them off with a filthy stick

Anonymous, 19 May 2000 00:00

IT’S important to look good in the city. For those who frequent the best bars and restaurants, a battered old CX500 is a bit of a no-no. The Ducati badge says all the right things to the Mercedes-driving minxes to your left and right in London’s most chic districts. The Monster has a city cool other bikes find hard to ...

So how do you like yours?

Anonymous, 12 May 2000 00:00

HOW do you want your bike to feel? Racy and quick into turns or steady and stable? It’s all down to suspension.Top racers spend more time working on suspension settings than anything else. The ad slogan is spot-on – power is nothing without control.In part one of this two-part special, MCN enlisted the help of former grand prix racer Ron ...

American psycho

Anonymous, 05 May 2000 00:00

BRUTAL, that’s the only word for it. The X1 Lightning has always been a bit of an animal, but this carbon-clad version has taken things to a new extreme. I can’t remember the last time I had a bike demand so much attention. Pull up at a set of traffic lights and car drivers don’t just give you that short, ...

How a slipper stops a slide...

Anonymous, 05 May 2000 00:00

WE’VE been hearing a lot about slipper clutches recently – they’re fitted to exotica like Aprilia’s RSV and anyone watching the TV coverage of the Phillip Island WSB will have seen what can happen if you don’t have one. Turning into a low-speed corner in the wet, Pier-Francesco Chili shut the throttle on his Suzuki GSX-R750 and was pitched off ...
