Our senior road tester Michael Neeves has done a lot of miles this year - he's ridden to Ibiza for a summer holiday, and even to Africa, just to prove he could!
But Neevesy's choice of bike wasn't always conventional. He rode his long term test Ducati 848 Streetfighter to Ibiza, while the Africa trip was done on a Ducati Panigale and a BMW S1000RR; hardly touring bikes!
Is he mad, taking bikes so far outside their comfort zones? Or is that exactly what bikes are for? Let us know your opinions!
