Which pairing most excites you for the Classic TT?

Bruce Anstey will be racing a full factory Yamaha YZR500 grand prix bike at this year's Classic TT in August. It arguably doesn't get much madder than that, but what pairing are you most looking forward to seeing lap the famous Mountain Course?

No need to rewrite history. Except if you're a fan

At the 1983 Swedish Grand Prix Roberts all but had the race won when in the final corner his title rival, Freddie Spencer, pushed his way through in a controversial move to win the race. Roberts said for years afterwards regarding that incident that he underestimated Spencer's willingness to endanger both of them in pursuit of a win. While some expected Roberts to attack Spencer after the race, he didn't, and by all reports was realistic about the incident. "I never had a teammate that came close to doing something like that," Roberts said. "Freddie ran me off the track ...

I would love the gsxr650f... but i want more power. Currently I own a GSXR600... and its great, as a sports bike. But, if I could get a more comfortable and practical ride with the power and acceleration and some good handling... that would be good! So, how practical and or expensive I wonder would it be to have a GSXR600-1000 engine put onto the GSXR650f ... to make it into the bike that should already exist (the GSX1000FR lol)?  I don't have any mechanical skills by the way.   I'm happy with the GSXR, I ride it 62 miles a day ...

Honda being shit house again!!

Dani Pedrosa signs on with HRC for two more years...I have nothing against Dani I just think he's well had his chance and is now sitting on a premier seat that a great up and coming rider should now be given a chance to shine (Aleix Espargaro, Pol Espargaro, Cal Crutchlow should have had this seat this year, Scott Reading, Jonathan Rea, again promised a ride, even Tom Sykes)and many you can probably think of yourself.It can only be Repsol money and spanish money keeping him there, he should now step down to a saterllite team.Seen this before with Alex Barros, ...

We ride the Ariel Ace at Goodwood

It%X92s hard to believe the Ariel Ace cruiser really is a new bike. It%X92s seemingly come out of nowhere, is made by a car firm, and yet it%X92s already better than many established production bikes. The Ariel Ace cruiser is impressive during my quick blast up and down the famous Goodwood hillclimb. It rides beautifully and, crucially, doesn%X92t try to be...

BMW F800GS Adventure (2013-current)

BMW set out to turn its 800GS into an authentic adventure bike and on this first showing have certainly achieved just that. Basically it%X92s an 800GS with a bigger (underseat) tank, extended bodywork and a host of options. Think of it as a %X913/4 version of the 1200 Adventure%X92 (even though, at 800cc, it%X92s actually 2/3) and you should get...
