  • 2017 TRIUMPH T100 & STREET CUP – TWIN PEAKS

    Triumph really has this retro-bike thing stitched up. In the last year, they have nailed it each and every time. The Hinckley designers feel there is a rich vein of nostalgia throbbing in the arm of motorcycling, and they...
  • FALCO SHORT BOOTS REVIEWED –SHIRO and AXIS 2.1

    FALCO SHIRO I first got a pair of Falco Shiro short boots four years ago. I wore them to almost to death. I wore them every day, and walked and rode thousands of kays in them – though I...
  • 2017 HARLEY-DAVIDSON MILWAUKEE 8

    Sometimes, the most profound revelations are pronounced over a cold beer. I was sitting at a table with Neale Brumby (publisher of Heavy Duty) and Greg Leech (editor of Road Rider), and we were drinking and casting aspersions upon...

  • HELD BODY ARMOUR

    Be calm. I realise that some of you might have thought you were looking at a green-and-black Deadpool riding a Tenere. But it’s not him. It’s me. I have caparisoned myself in the latest Held body armour and have...
  • SO YOU’VE BEEN PULLED OVER – A SURVIVAL GUIDE

    I have read, with my usual enlightened disdain, recent articles purporting to offer advice to motorcycles who have been pulled over by the cops. Without exception, these dreary pieces are written, rather poorly, by tea-sipping mouse-hearts whose experience with...
  • IXON PRO APEX 2 GLOVES – TRIED AND TESTED

    I have been using these fine-looking hand-shoes for a while now. I’ve done maybe 2000kms with them. Most of those kilometres have been brisk, and there was even a mad dash to Canberra from Sydney and back where it...
