Norton TT Racer On The Road

Adam Child, 23 June 2014 16:44

You can’t underestimate how hard it is to compete at the Isle of Man TT. It’s a mammoth task, and it’s almost impossible to convey with mere words the sheer scale of the mountain they have climbed, figuratively, and over the top of the island. But forget about the riding for a second; the logistics, planning and organisation alone are ...

Suzuki C1500T first ride

Adam Child, 30 April 2013 06:30

They may be about as relevant in the UK as a 50ft Winnebago or eight-litre SUV but, if you hadn’t cottoned on already, ‘baggers’ - or be-bagged or panniered cruisers designed for comfort and custom style and, usually, also with Plexiglass screens, a relaxed riding position and footboards instead of conventional footpegs, are big news in the U S of A. ...

BMW’s all-new and eagerly-awaited R1200GS is currently being put through its paces in South Africa by MCN Senior Tester Adam Child.

Middleweight super twins tested

Adam Child, 26 July 2012 14:10

Going by the sales figures, new supersport 600s today are about as appealing as an ‘internal inspection’ at Terminal 5 – a far, far cry from the sales topping stats of bikes like the CBR600F in the 1990s. The quest for track and race success has resulted, so the theory goes, in bikes which are too extreme as road bikes ...

Kawasaki Versys 1000 delivers more for your money

Adam Child, 08 December 2011 10:08

So does a four-cylinder adventure bike make any sense? On the strength of our world first ride of Kawasaki’s pioneering, Z1000-based Versys 1000, the answer is ‘Yes’… and ‘No’… The Versys 1000 has a superbly smooth and tractable engine, class-leading traction control, all-day comfort, and is the cheapest bike in its class. But its looks are controversial and I was ...

Benelli struggle on with style

Adam Child, 04 August 2011 15:42

Although Benelli hasn't gone the way of compatriots Moto Morini (which went into administration last year), there's no doubt it has been struggling, with model updates limited to minor revisions on a now ageing range of nakeds and sportsters based around the Pesaro-firm's charismatic three-cylinder engine. The new TNT R160 is the latest example of the breed. Effectively Benelli's only ...

Video: BMW S1000RR goes through TT pits at 150mph

Adam Child, 01 June 2011 09:53

This is the horrifying moment last night when TT rider Paul Shoesmith entered pit lane at 150mph by mistake. Apparently Shoesmith – on board his Ice Valley BMW S1000RR – was blinded by the sun and was slightly off line. The experienced TT rider went on to record a best lap last night of 118.726 – impressive after such a ...
