Staff Blog: Well, that%X92ll be autumn then!

  Riding in this morning I%X92ve had to give in and fully kit up in cordura. Looking out of the bedroom window at 7.30 it was really quite murky and living in the middle of a housing estate if it%X92s murky outside our house I know it%X92s going to be worse heading towards the A1. I knew it was time to give...

Staff Blog: To Jet Wash or Not to Jet Wash?

  I lent my bike to a colleague last week for the MCN Awards ride out and after an awfully wet ride down to the venue in Dorking, followed by a couple of hours riding through the Surrey Hills, the bike was returned looking very second hand. I%X92m not one for jet-washing but it seemed the only option to get rid of...

Staff Blog: A Week of Two Wheels but not the Motorised Kind!

  I%X92ve not turned a wheel on the Yamaha Fazer8 for the last couple of weeks. Instead of being power assisted I%X92ve been producing my own power and cycled, along with a group of ten family and friends, from Dublin to Galway and back. We had a brilliant holiday, with plenty of hills to conquer, I%X92m sure Ireland must be on...

Staff Blog: To Flash or Not to Flash?

  My hubby and I were riding through the rolling Leicestershire countryside towards Rutland Water on a recent Sunday morning ride when we were flashed twice by oncoming cars but not at all by the oncoming bikes. Being cautious we slowed to just under the speed limit and after about half a mile came upon a sneaky camera van tucked on...

An XJR that RoCkS

This is the latest stunning cafe racer from the Portuguese outfit it RoCkS bikes. Called Sunburn, the bike is based around a 1997 Yamaha XJR1200. Builders Osvaldo & Alexandre set to work with a mission to reduce the XJR's weight and size, throwing away pretty much every part of the bike except for the engine, a small part of the frame and the swingarm. By...

Staff Blog: Night Riding Fun

Is it just me or do your skills sharpen as you ride in the dark and your speed increase? Riding the 50 miles from Silverstone to home the other night I really enjoyed the dark journey. The lights on Yamaha Fazer8 give really good visibility and I noticed that I was using other cars, cats eye and road markings far more...

Staff Blog: Too Many Fazers, Too Little Time

I%X92ve not just been riding the Yamaha Fazer8 this week, for a forthcoming long term feature I%X92ve been out on my mate%X92s Yamaha FZS600 Fazer and the big brother of the range the FZ1 Fazer. I was really surprised how easy and comfortable I felt hopping from one bike to the other. Each were quite similar to ride in some...
