1 of 7

In this week’s MCN, out June 6, we have all the action from the first races of the 2012 Isle of Man TT.

John McGuinness gets ever closer to Joey’s record with his 19th TT win. We talk to the Honda TT Legends rider after his Superstock victory.

This week we have spy shots of several new BMW models.

Also this week we put the top adventure bikes through their paces on an off-road adventure with Dakar rider Stan Watt.

Plus we have all the news and gossip from the weekend’s MotoGP race at Catalunya.
