Ride like King Kenny Roberts

Guy Procter, 11 July 2011 16:46

Inspired by Kenny Roberts' still-got-it performance at the Festival of 1000 Bikes at Mallory? You couldn't fail to be. So if you fancy benefiting from the tiniest shard of genius thrown from the master, you could do worse than watch this. We trust Babelgum has full licensing clearance to screen the classic Champions: Kenny Roberts doc in full (a quick ...

Crash Card: Every helmet should have one

Guy Procter, 09 June 2011 15:46

There's no bigger favour you can do a paramedic – and hence yourself in the event of a crash – than keeping a Crash Card in your helmet. How do we know? Because it's the idea of the motorcyclists within the ambulance service itself. The Crash Card is a simple business-card-sized note you store inside the padding of your helmet ...

Esoteric riding skills #7: How to escape future 'Raptures'

Guy Procter, 27 May 2011 17:31

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! Mega handy when you’re going for ...

How not to be overawed by your big adventure tourer

Guy Procter, 11 May 2011 14:32

Okay, this is more inspiration than information, but just realising how cumbersome your big adventure tourer needn’t be can be very empowering. Here we see how well even one of the biggest – Yamaha’s XTZ1200 Super Tenere – responds to being bossed, courtesy of an as yet un-named Greek rider and his ‘urban enduro’ antics.

Esoteric riding skills no.5: How to ride round the rim of a giant sandstone pothole

Guy Procter, 06 May 2011 15:49

Granted it’s not a widespread challenge riders face, but if and when you are, then any information becomes very relevant indeed. The man in this next video wants to graduate to giant sandstone pothole rim riding, but sensibly has opted to start with something smaller. Key learnings: 1 Keep the throttle on2 Look ahead3 Grip the tank with your knees4 ...

Riding skills: How to get on a motorcycle

Guy Procter, 06 May 2011 14:14

Failure to mount a motorcycle properly can lead to poor forward vision and throttle control, and it’s a growing problem among predominantly slender, female new riders. Deterred by the complexity of explaining this key task adequately, magazines and instructors have shied away from it for years. So we’re incredibly thankful to American training outfit Motorcycle Riding Concepts who’ve managed to ...
