How to prepare for a summer tour

What do I need? The absolute minimum is a bike, some money for fuel and you. No, seriously. If you want scenery or interesting places to go on the cheap then the UK has it all. If you travel abroad a passport and documents are necessary. It’s only when you want those added luxuries that touring starts to become an ...

How to fine tune your riding position

Isn’t your bike’s riding position just something you have to put up with? No - there is a wide variety of small adjustments you can make to even the most comfortable bike to make it fit your body shape and riding needs better. It’s worth the effort because being uncomfortable or unsettled on a bike brings on mental tiredness far ...

How to make your bike go better on the cheap

Nothing is ever free is it? No – but some things come pretty damn close. After laying out for the price of a bike and all the associated riding gear, anything which helps boost the bike’s and the rider’s performance with the investment of a few minutes’ time, or a few quid, has to be worth it. Are we talking ...

How to prepare your bike for a trackday

Why bother? As road riders we are quick to learn our limits. Road furniture (eg telegraph poles, hedges etc), other road users and the law help curb our enthusiasm for riding fast. But on an open track, where there is no oncoming traffic or imposed speed limit, your bike can be ridden faster and harder. That’s all great for improving ...

How to prepare for your first trackday

Trackdays are just for nutters and racers, aren’t they? Yes, and no. Trackdays are popular with the racing fraternity because race practice is very limited – how and where else can a racer set up their bike? You have to remember that even the quickest rider had their first trackday and, like you, were probably nervous. But don’t forget to ...

How to keep your tyres in good health

But there’s nothing to look after on a tyre… Not true. Imagine what would happen if one of your tyres failed to work at 70mph. Anything that keeps tyres in tip-top condition is worth every penny or second of your time. Taking a good look at both tyres when you lube the chain is an easy way of maintaining their ...

How to keep your licence spotless

How can I be spared? Remember this if you’re stopped by a copper: he may just want to offer some words of advice. A hostile response could turn this into a ticket or court appearance, or at best, a Vehicle Defect Rectification Notice (VDRN) and a ‘producer’, which means the inconvenience of producing your documents later at a police station. ...

How to park your bike securely

Why bother? Because having your motorcycle nicked is about twice as likely as your car being half-inched – and such thefts often occur in temporary parking locations. Of course there’s no guarantee that your bike won’t be stolen – if a professional thief wants your bike he’ll probably get it. But combining as many security measures as reasonably and practically ...

How to fit soft luggage

Why choose soft luggage? Soft luggage is cheap, easy to use and once you’ve invested in some, you’ll be able to use it on almost any bike (although soft panniers don’t work well with all exhausts). It’s very versatile. What features should good soft luggage have? Good, sturdy material with decent, chunky zips that will be hard-wearing – and it ...

How to secure your garage against thieves

If a thief really wants my bike, he’ll get it won’t he? Any form of theft deterrent is a big step towards keeping hold of your bike, especially when it’s locked in a garage. Yes, it’s true to say out of sight is out of mind... especially if it’s at night – you can’t see it and, chances are, you ...
