Motorcyclists can join POLITE force

Motorcyclists have been told they can legally wear a high-visibility vest that resembles police uniform. The yellow bibs have the word ‘polite’ printed on the back in large capital letters, along with a strip of blue-and-white crosshatching similar to designs traditionally worn by police. Cyclists in London already wear them to get drivers to give them more space, after Met ...

Sorry mate, I didn’t tree you

No amount of training can prepare us for some hazards of the road, as one riding instructor learned. Barry Briggs had a lucky escape when a tree fell on him as he followed a student.  The instructor was riding on the A606 near Upper Broughton, Nottinghamshire, when the tree fell across the entire width of the road. Helmet camera footage ...

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 ...

Clampdown on un-roadworthy bikes catches 15 times as many cars

A police clampdown on un-roadworthy motorcycles ended up catching up to 15 times more cars than bikes. Police had warned riders in advance: 'Don't risk it by taking to the roads without ensuring that your motorcycle is in a fully roadworthy condition.’ But only eight out of 129 vehicles caught in the three-day clampdown were motorcycles. A further 629 speeding ...

Staff blog: How much?

I got a shock when I saw the price of new standard rear tyre for the Burgman 650 ABS Executive from a Suzuki dealer: £184 plus £30 for fitting.   The first one has just been replaced during the 4000 mile service, which costs £135. So that’s a total of £349.   I do 800 miles a week commuting to ...

Staff blog: A question for readers

I’ve been accused of being over-critical of bikes in the past. A spot of rust after a couple of months and I have a whinge about it in print. “What about the positives?” a manufacturer once complained.  So I’m not going to do that this time. I’m going to report that the Burgman 650 ABS Executive is a fantastic, underestimated ...

Cat and Fiddle camera makers withdraw casualty claims

The makers of average-speed cameras on the Cat and Fiddle run are withdrawing a casualty reduction claim after a complaint to the Advertising Standards Authority. Vysionics ITS had claimed its speed cameras reduce deaths and serious injuries by “more than 70%” on average. The Alliance of British Drivers said the claim was an exaggeration because it ignored chance variation in ...
