‘Grave concerns’ about graphic safety ad

A leading riders’ group has said it has “grave concerns” about a graphic new safety ad.  The cinema ad by Transport for London shows a motorcyclist lying on his back in the road. While paramedics work to save him, he says to the camera: “I’m going into cardiac arrest now. Silly place to overtake, really. Still, you live and learn ...

Staff blog: The myth of the Burgman's small tank

I've established the Suzuki Burgman 650 ABS Executive has a much longer tank range than it’s credited with.   Some reports have estimated it at 150 miles, probably because the fuel warning starts flashing at about 130. In fact you’ve got a bar left on the gauge and at least 40 miles in the tank at that point.   There’s ...

Staff blog: Blinded by handlebar muffs

In this week’s paper I report how the heated grips on the Suzuki Burgman 650 could be warmer. Just about every journalist on the launch in Scotland seemed to agree on the point. Some said they seemed to work intermittently.  Others questioned whether they worked at all. Suzuki scratched their heads and said they’d look into it. On the ride ...

Staff blog: A lecture from the rozzers

You might think your licence would be safe on a scooter but I’ve already been in trouble with the rozzers a week after picking mine up.   The Suzuki Burgman 650 ABS Executive has two automatic modes: Drive and Power. The latter is surprisingly, addictively brisk.   Pulling out of a petrol station on the way to work yesterday morning, ...

10 worst and five best promo videos

1. Kawasaki Z800Bystanders gawp at the new Z800 and take photographs in this preposterous video from Kawasaki Australia. It's as though they've found a portal to another universe and not a mass production motorcycle. A trucker radios his mates and weirdly gets a nod from the passing rider. Two hairy Antipodeans applaud and give thumbs up to the parked bike. Clearly ...

The four are seen arriving on two scooters shortly after 11pm. One cuts through the shop’s metal shutters with a disc grinder while the others keep watch.   Once inside, three struggle ...

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

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. ...
