Staff blog: In defence of the Burgman, pt 1

Steve Farrell, 13 June 2013 10:41

I’m experiencing mild frustration at some of the preconceptions I’ve encountered about the Burgman. If you’ve read my replies to reader comments under my previous blog entries, you may have detected a hint of defensiveness.   Although I’m really enjoying using the Burgman, for example, people keep telling me to get rid of it. So far five reader comments have ...

Staff blog: How much?

Steve Farrell, 04 June 2013 10:14

I got a shock when I saw the price of new standard rear tyre for the Burgman 650 ABS Executive from a Suzuki dealer: £184 plus £30 for fitting.   The first one has just been replaced during the 4000 mile service, which costs £135. So that’s a total of £349.   I do 800 miles a week commuting to ...

Staff bikes: Triumph Street Triple - Bits go on. Bits fall off

Dan Aspel, 29 September 2010 11:03

No sooner had I fitted a protective radiator cover to my Street Triple than my housemate backed his car into it. Forcefully. Lifting it from the mud and back onto its sidestand, surveying the bike in the Monday drizzle, there wasn’t much time to appreciate the irony. Luckily there wasn’t any apparent damage. Handlebars straight. Mirrors twisted but undamaged. No ...

Staff bikes: Enfield Clubman - I can see clearly now

Marc Abbott, 07 June 2010 10:14

I have an addictive personality; I horde things, lots of things. There are approximately 30 pairs of shoes scattered around my house, my garage looks like a library, the loft is full of old C90 compilation tapes and LPs... and now that I own a bike which demands the use of an open-face lid I fear I might've started a ...

Staff bikes: Yamaha TZR250 - On every other Sunday

Chris Newbigging, 02 June 2010 15:53

You’ll probably think I’m a bit of a slacker for not starting my TZR250 blog until I’ve already competed in three rounds of this season. Which is fair enough, but in my defence, the start of the season has been a whirlwind – the first three rounds were separated by just 12 days each. Even pre-season, it was hectic – ...

Staff bikes: Enfield Clubman - Top speed test for 28bhp missile

Marc Abbott, 12 May 2010 15:53

My Enfield Bullet Clubman has no rev counter and nothing but an ‘old-fashioned’ dial by way of speedometer. And once above a certain speed the needle can wander by as much as 10mph either way. A previous model I rode maxed out at an indicated 82mph in top gear; this one will hit an indicated 95mph before the rev limiter. ...

Staff bikes: BMW R1200RT - The RT doesn't disappoint

Andy Downes, 12 April 2010 15:00

I've just woken up in Moffat in Scotland after a great days ride up yesterday on the BMW R1200RT. There's nothing like a long trip to help you gel with a new bike and the RT didn't disappoint managing to combine comfort with more than enough fun. The route up here took me along the A68 through the Northumberland National ...

Staff bikes: BMW R1200RT - Ten days, 650 miles and all is cool…just wet

Andy Downes, 07 April 2010 14:16

At some point over the next few months I might get to find out what the BMW R1200RT I am running as a long term test bike is like to ride in the dry. So far, the bike has been out in the wet, the damp, the slightly less than torrential rain, torrential rain and farmers muck covered roads. I ...

Norton Motorcycles is making its first visit to the Bonneville Salt Flats in the USA, where boss Stuart Garner is riding the NRV588 flat out. The team is using this year to get an understanding for the salt flats – it is hoped the FIM will introduce a new class for rotary-engined bikes in time for next year, so the ...
