Staff Blog: Natural order restored

Tony Hoare, 27 November 2013 09:54

I thought I was done for winter. After a couple of weeks on holiday I’d not got back into the habit of riding to work every day, thanks to my insistence that I would only ride when I wanted to, not because I felt I needed to. There’s also my reluctance to get the Triumph coated in winter cack as ...

Staff blog: Garage blues

Phil West, 26 November 2013 14:45

As you’ll all, no doubt, have noticed, winter has arrived. And as you’ll all equally no doubt know, winter is a time for garages. Though I’m planning to run the Tiger Sport through as much of this year’s cold and slime as possible, there’s no getting away from the fact that, for a fair proportion of this winter the Triumph ...

Staff Blog: Yard Built, Yamaha Blessed

Steve Hunt, 22 November 2013 10:40

After years of bubbling just below the surface, the 'café-racer scene', this once underground segment of the custom-bike world now finds itself cresting the mainstream wave; shows on Discovery Turbo, the celebrated launch of bikes such as BMW's recent NineT and the resurgence of old, classic brands as trendy fashion labels (see the recently launched, Kate Moss-fronted Matchless clothing line; ...

Staff Blog: From Draper to Dapper

Steve Hunt, 18 October 2013 13:20

A year or so ago, Australian Mark Hawwa and his online/riding friends from the Australian Cafe Racers website found a picture of Don Draper - the suave, fictional advertising director from the 1960s set TV drama, Mad Men. In it, the ever-sophisticated Draper sits astride a vintage, ruby red, Matchless motorcycle wearing a sharply-cut, single-breasted suit and with his pocket-square ...

Staff Blog: Time for a new shoe

Liam Marsden, 11 October 2013 10:30

I've covered a lot of miles on the Judge this year - approaching 8000 - and I've only just replaced the rear tyre. In truth it could have done with a change 2000 miles ago as it was starting to square a lot, but there was still plenty of life left in the tread. A last minute trip to Switzerland meant I had ...

Staff Blog: Leave it, Lock it, Love it!

Alison Silcox, 09 October 2013 13:01

  Travelling into London for a mini-adventure at the weekend I needed to make sure I’d got a way to secure my bike and also relieve myself of having to carry too much cumbersome luggage around with me. The Oxford Lid Locker was such a brilliant little find and at only £19.99 a great priced bit of kit too. It ...

Staff Blog: New Dog, Newer Tricks

Steve Hunt, 04 October 2013 11:43

I’ve been riding a ‘big bike’ for twelve months now and the last eight of them have been spent working for the world’s 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: Well, that’ll be autumn then!

Alison Silcox, 03 October 2013 09:33

  Riding in this morning I’ve 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’s murky outside our house I know it’s going to be worse heading towards the A1. I knew it was time ...

Staff Blog: Rekindling the love

Steve Hunt, 25 September 2013 11:46

I’ve not ridden much these past few weeks. A combination of school holidays, work load and a general feeling of malaise has forced me to leave the trusted F800GT in the garage for longer than I would have liked. Upon opening the garage door for the first time in several days, and on looking at the white gloss and black ...
