Has the trackday touring tyre arrived?

Tim Thompson, 05 April 2014 09:00

The Battlax BT-014 was the first ‘GP-derived’ Bridgestone, its technology handed down to road bikes from the Bridgestone development team run by Erv Kanemoto in 2001 and 2002. It was hot and sticky ‘hypersport’ rubber deemed good enough in 2004 to win the MCN Tyre of the Year award. The Bridgestone T30, meanwhile, is a current sports touring tyre. It ...

Staff Blog: Black Bikes...

Tim Thompson, 14 June 2013 16:22

I love the idea of black bikes. They're the stealth option. In 2013 black also seems like the sensible choice for a sports bike like the GSX-R750, not so much because it helps you slip unnoticed from the scene of the crime, but because it's like those of us riding them -- a bit older. More grown up than some ...

50 quick road miles on the new Honda CBR600

Tim Thompson, 05 May 2013 15:30

There's still snow on the fields as I head out onto the back lanes of Cambridgeshire. It's four days since the near-washout of the track launch and this new CBR600RR -- just 90 miles on the clock --  is passing through the MCN lock-up on its way to Sicily for our upcoming 600s group test. I've got one hour. Unlike ...

Staff Blog: Bird Strikes

Tim Thompson, 24 April 2013 09:57

I'm developing a theory, or at least something more substantial than a random thought, that birds have it in for my Suzuki GSX-R750. Pigeons definitely don't like it.  Each morning they wait in numbers in the long grass until it's close, then, steady lads, explode from the verge in a syncronised show of disgust. Earlier this week a red kite, ...

Snow at the CBR600RR launch

Tim Thompson, 21 March 2013 11:43

Snow and freezing temperatures at the press launch of the 2013 Honda CBR600RR ensured that the myriad changes to the bike Honda remain, for now, untested. The repackaged CBR features new 41mm Big Piston Forks, a remapped ECU for improved mid and upper-range engine performance, plus a pair of Fireblade-style 12-spoke ally wheels --  modifications that Honda hope will improve ...

The ultimate BMW HP2 Sport

Tim Thompson, 15 January 2013 07:30

You either love the idea of trying to make a twin-cylinder air-cooled engine that's based on an old 1923 knocker go like the clappers, or you don’t. If you don’t, life is simple: you buy a Fireblade or an R1 and go zooming about. If you do you kiss goodbye to normality and sign up to the fringes of mainstream ...
