Staff Blog: In search of confidence

Tony Hoare, 24 June 2013 17:56

I’ve started to try and get to the bottom of the confidence issue I reported in the paper last week, which has left me with chicken strips on the Street Triple R’s Pirelli tyres. First step was to order some Dunlop Sportsmart tyres. I’m not blaming my drained  confidence on the standard Pirelli Diablo Corsas - but I’ve never ridden ...

Staff Blog: Please don't kill me

Tony Hoare, 11 June 2013 11:43

Well that was the scariest, most bum-puckery, head-duckery moment I’ve had since I got back on a bike in the Spring. Casually riding south on the A1, thinking about whether to make one more overtake before reaching the exit that leads to the MCN office. Yes, there’s loads of room to pass a dawdling Audi. Check mirror, indicate, aim just ...

Staff Blog: Passports at the ready

Tony Hoare, 07 June 2013 18:14

There’s always a tingle that comes with the thought of riding abroad. And, now the working day is coming to a close, I’m feeling the tingle. The sun’s shining, the TT commentary is piping out of the computer and I’m headed for Belgium on the Street Triple R. It’s not designed for touring, but you can go anywhere on anything ...

Staff Blog: Fair-weather rider? I wish

Tony Hoare, 24 May 2013 15:20

This year I’ve been trying to turn myself into a fair weather rider. Honestly, it’s not me, it’s the bike  - I don’t mind riding in the wet and have done thousands of miles in the rain over the years. But the Street Triple R really doesn’t like the wet. The handling doesn’t inspire me to commute the long way ...

Staff bikes: Triumph Street Triple - Breaking it in

Dan Aspel, 07 July 2010 16:50

The first 1000 miles of riding the Street Triple was a real bonding experience between myself and the bike. Feeling the engine develop from a tightly-wound, tense machine into something more fluid and smooth gave me a real sense of understanding its potential. As a new-ish rider (full license last July), this left me excited at the prospect of growing ...
