How to ride your bike backwards

Dan Aspel, 19 May 2011 16:44

Perspective is everything in life. Falling into familiar habits and patterns can make life seem so drab and repetitious.

What filling up in Malawi reveals about the F800GS

Guy Procter, 12 May 2011 16:46

Here’s a great argument for the superiority of the F800GS over its bigger brother, the R1200GS. It’s lighter, goes further on a tank of gas, is easier to pick up when you (inevitably) drop it, and it’s even fun at filling up time. Where’s the filler cap? Not buried under the tankbag, no sirree!
