Staff Blog: Time for new shoes!

Ian Jubb, 29 May 2013 15:29

Having just clocked up 3000 miles on the RT the rear is starting to square off and with a trip to France looming I figured it's best to get them switched from the OE Metzeler Roadtec Z8 to the all new Pirelli Angel GT rubber. Turns out I picked a great day to fit the new sports touring tyres - not!It's ...

Staff Blog: Let the journey begin!

Ian Jubb, 13 May 2013 13:22

My week of riding has begun, destination Northern Italy. Sitting in the sunshine at Folkstone waiting for my slot on the Chunnel makes me realise what biking is all about. This years seemly endless winter made me forget the appeal of the two wheeled lifestyle, it's ok now, I definitely remember. Only 450 more miles to go today, accompanied by ...

Staff bikes: Ducati Diavel - No pain, no gain

Ian Jubb, 13 October 2011 16:18

As with all my motorcycle adventures, it started with poor timing and a torrential downpour. The panic to make the 8.15pm Brittany Ferries sailing from Portsmouth to St Malo meant I had to average more than 60mph over the 195-mile journey, which meant some swift progress on damp roads. This was the first truly wet journey on the bike which ...

Video: Ducati Diavel longterm report

Ian Jubb, 16 September 2011 14:09

This year has flown by and with it 3000 miles have been covered on my Ducati Diavel long termer. Being a true Brit at heart I'd love to moan about it, pick holes and say grumpy things but I really can't, I haven't got a bad word to say, nothing that niggles enough to lay into anyway. Truth is, the Diavel has ...

Staff bikes: Ducati Diavel - Well worth the money

Ian Jubb, 07 September 2011 12:08

The Diavel is a strange machine to say the least. It goes very fast, stops just as quickly and is already pumping out huge figures (162bhp). This all left me wondering how to improve upon its already epic performance. I’ll be honest with you – I’ve little technical knowledge of what suspension really does in practice, how it does it ...

Staff bikes: Ducati Diavel - A do-anything bike with mega attitude

Ian Jubb, 29 July 2011 12:05

The weather gods have been smiling upon us, which has meant that the Diavel has hardly stopped running over the last two months, whether it be commuting or a full-on 200-mile round trip to find some good corners and meet up with fellow Ducati riders and admirers. It's been a dream come true. I've a bold statement to make: I'm ...

Staff bikes: Ducati Diavel - A few tentative laps at Silverstone

Ian Jubb, 23 May 2011 16:22

This weekend was Ducati Days at Silverstone and it would've been rude not to attend and take the Diavel around the GP circuit. The first session of the afternoon arrived and I headed out with Maria Costello MBE to get some idea of where I was going. Silverstone is so huge, I was truly lost, no idea when, where and at what speed to turn ...

Staff bikes: Ducati Diavel - First impressions

Ian Jubb, 12 May 2011 14:32

A slow three hour train journey from Kings Lynn to Coventry allowed just enough time for the nerves to build up. I say nerves I mean more apprehension about the 162 horses waiting to be unleashed. The Diavel was without doubt going to be the most powerful bike I'd ever ridden. Luckily it's got traction control to help me when I get a bit ...

Staff bikes: Ducati Diavel - It's almost time!

Ian Jubb, 06 May 2011 13:31

My excitement is mounting by the bucket load as after a few weeks of waiting I have finally been given the date for collection of my Ducati Diavel long termer for 2011. On Monday I'll be getting the train to Ducati Coventry for a 12 o'clock pickup then straight on to Road Angel at Silverstone to start the ball rolling ...
