Staff Blog: New Dog, Newer Tricks

I%X92ve been riding a %X91big bike%X92 for twelve months now and the last eight of them have been spent working for the world%X92s largest motorcycling publication. I am very aware of how enviable a position this puts me in amongst the British motorcycling community and whenever I mention to someone whom I have just met about what it is that...

Staff Blog: F800GT - A feeling of belonging.

The grey, British skies seemed determined to quell my excited mood and, as I joined the queue for the channel tunnel, the drizzle misted across my visor and I wasn't entirely sure that a six hour sprint across France was the most sensible way in which to pop my touring cherry. The panicked security guard, running around the cafe asking...

Staff Blog: It%X92s not all about the new stuff

While at the Goodwood Festival of Speed a couple of weeks ago, I was chatting with an MCN reader about the BMW 90th Anniversary display, each of us singling out the models we%X92d own if money was no object. He was a nice chap, but his %X91mate%X92 clearly had a bit of a chip on his shoulder about the...



DTM replica BM scoots launched in Germany

BMW%X92s standard C600 sports scooter not racy enough for you? Then how about these two new limited edition versions inspired by the German Touring Car (DTM) race series? The matte black %X91Spengler Edition%X92 is inspired by the livery of reigning DTM champion, Canadian Bruno Spengler. While the white %X91Tomcyzk edition%X92 pays homage to Martin Tomczyk and the RMG BMW team complete...

Used buying guide: BMW GS

What can be said about BMW%X92s legendary GS that hasn%X92t already been extensively documented? As well as being the longest running model in modern motorcycling, the GS has formed the backbone of BMW Motorrad with currently 25% of their sales coming from this machine alone. It is, quite simply, the most successful modern motorcycle on the planet. But it doesn%X92t stop...

Staff Blog: Back from Bavaria

That's it. My Garmisch trip is all over. It was a fantastic few days, made all the better by a glorious, bookend of rides through France, Germany and a little bit of Austria. I've written a longer report for the paper (don't forget Apple and Google editions!) which will be published in a couple of weeks - but whilst I was there I...

BMW S1000RR gets mid-life refresh

BMW is months away from launching a revised S1000RR which insiders say will get semi-active suspension from the HP4, a host of minor revisions along with an even more sophisticated ABS system which can even work when cornering to prevent lowside crashes. This prototype BMW confirms the company is continuing development of the class-leading superbike with a mid-life refresh that also...

Staff Blog: Bavaria and back on the Beemer

The BMW F800GT is a tourer. So far I%X92ve covered just short of three thousand miles worth of short trips to and from various parts of the country - living out of the panniers for the occasional odd night over here and there - but I%X92m yet to have dipped my toe into the Grand Tour side of the bike...

Best bikes for under %XA35k: 2005-2009 BMW R1200RT

What was it like then?Bland but effective BMWs, like the R1150RT, managed to attract an army of fans, but they did comprise a rather stereotypical legion of buyers. While many bikes in the Bavarian range could be accused of image and purpose confusion, the tourers had at least always been fit for purpose, until the R1200RT emerged blinking into the...

Staff Blog: I bet it won%X92t go off-road%X85

Whether I%X92m picking up a curry on a Saturday night, filling up with petrol somewhere, or answering calls from readers who are thinking of buying one (or never buying one) %X96 I%X92m regularly bombarded by the sure assertion that the R1200GS must be rubbish when the Tarmac gives way to the soft stuff. It%X92s a slightly odd assertion considering...
