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 Blog: Filthy Street

Tony Hoare, 13 May 2013 10:30

I’d forgotten how dirty a minimalistic bike like the Street Triple R can get. I was caught out in a rain storm yesterday and within half an hour the Triumph looked like it had been taken down a farm track, which it hadn’t. The ride was on A-roads, but the level of filth on the back end was incredible.   ...

Staff Blog: A bundle of fizzing fun

Tony Hoare, 06 May 2013 18:00

Two weeks in to ownership of the Street Triple R and I'm cementing the bond with the bike. I'm remembering the little joys of owning a Triumph, like the braided steel brake hoses and tyre valves mounted at 90 degrees to the wheel rims. I'm also remembering some of the niggles, like instrument menus that have the ability to tie me up in knots ...

Staff blog: I'm back

Tony Hoare, 03 May 2013 10:53

Do not swear. I know I can’t, but I’m bursting to. The Triumph Street Triple R I’m running for the year is absolutely [insert your swear word of choice here] brilliant. I was in love with it within a quarter-mile of riding it away from the office for the first time, and that only grew in the longer-than-usual commute home. ...

Staff Blog: The long way home

Tony Hoare, 25 April 2013 14:52

“The ride to work is going to be a blast on the nimble triple – and the ride home again is going to be even better. Dear A1, you’ll not be seeing much of me.” The grey and red Triumph Street Triple R in the shed outside work has my name on it. Figuratively, not literally of course. I’ve got ...
