Staff Blog: Today is a good day…

Michael Guy, 26 April 2013 12:06

The last couple of months haven’t been easy. I’ve seen my colleagues at MCN come bouncing into the office having received their long term test bikes for the year. I however have been forced to do my commute up the A1 in a people carrier, which as the weather has improved has become increasingly soul destroying. But, today that all ...

Extreme adventure test - which would you choose?

Michael Guy, 08 June 2012 14:45

Designed for travelling to the remotest corners of the globe, big bore adventure bikes have become the must have biking accessory in recent years.

KTM 450RR Dakar bike ridden

Michael Guy, 30 March 2012 15:32

It doesn’t look like a bike that’s just finished the Dakar – it’s clean and there are only minimal signs of wear. A closer look tells you that the built to order factory KTM 450RR has seen some action but for a bike that’s been raced for 5600 miles across Argentina, Chile and Peru – it’s looking sweet. It belongs ...

2012 KTM Duke 690 first ride: Duke for the masses

Michael Guy, 22 December 2011 11:27

KTM’s 2012 690 Duke isn’t just an evolution of the hard core Duke - it’s a complete revolution: an all-new bike - 90% new in fact, with just 10% of its components shared with its predecessor. The biggest surprise is in the looks department. Gone is the hard-edged supermotard appearance and in its place a more regular-looking naked bike albeit ...

Michael Guy, 08 December 2011 13:16

The wheels of the big Yamaha Super Tenere have barely stopped turning. It’s been into France, Belgium and Germany for the Nurburgring WSB round followed by a jaunt down to Magny Cours for another WSB race.

Michael Guy, 07 December 2011 10:19

MCN’s Michael Guy is in Gran Canaria testing KTM’s all new 2012 KTM Duke 690. "First impressions of the bike is how different it looks to its predecessor.

Staff bikes: Yamaha Super Tenere - Here we go again

Michael Guy, 26 September 2011 11:44

Having clocked 4500 miles on the big Super Tenere so far this year, life is good. It's not the sharpest-handling or most exciting big adventure bike out there, but as an all-round package it's certainly grown on me. The chassis is incredibly well balanced and combined, the engine civilised, it's comfortable and easy to ride, which is ultimately what a ...

With a few big trips planned in the next couple of months it was time to get the Super Tenere ready for action.
