Buying guide: Kawasaki H2

MCN, 14 August 2014 10:53

Fast, loud, thirsty and anti-social, Kawasaki’s H2 triple embraced the Seventies’ spirit of excess. The 748cc two-stroke burned briefly but intensely, lighting up the scene in 1971 before being squeezed out by the even-faster Z1 in ’73. But by then the H2 had cemented its place in folklore.

The reality is you don’t need specialist touring luggage, kit or an investment banker’s ...

IsraelsRSV, 20 October 2013 20:29

Andy Downes, 23 September 2013 16:46

“I can’t believe I only won one”

Mat Oxley, 02 May 2013 08:30

The Rules: Be a four-time world title-winning race mechanic

Steve Farrell, 27 March 2013 18:00

Anyone who followed Carl Fogarty’s World Superbike career will know the name Slick Bass. As Ducati’s chief mechanic, it was Slick’s spannering that helped Foggy win a record four titles in the Nineties.  Anthony Bass, nicknamed Slick for his speed, and possibly the odd oil spillage, has also worked alongside Joey Dunlop, Steve Hislop and Ron Haslam in a 30-year-career. ...

My track day experience

Jamie Pryke, 17 March 2013 01:55

My father is a complete bike nut, owning about three different bikes at any one time and he's into track days. He started off with an old GSX-R600 bought from eBay all kitted out and track ready and he worked it to death. Now to put it in perspective, our local circuit is Snetterton. This is bad news for a 600cc ...
