  • LOST YOUR LICENCE?

      I have lost my licence several times. I view the process like the Circle of Life – they give it to me, they give it back, I then return it to them, they eventually return it to me...
  • THOSE LITRE LIES

    Can someone tell me why nearly all of our young riders (and an obscene proportion of our older ones) are such pathetic chicken-bitches? Their hyperventilated panicking appears on cue each time any reference is made to 1000cc sportsbikes and...
  • 2018 BMW K1600GT SPEZIAL OPTION 719 – DAS TOURER

      Right after the good people at BMW demanded I return the K1600B (for Bagger), those same good people pushed me aboard another variant of this astonishing motorcycle – the K1600GT Spezial Option 719. How could I refuse this...
  • X-LITE X-803 ULTRA CARBON REVIEW – The sexy just got sexier (and better)

    One more X in its name and we’d be at such a level of helmet-porn, I’d have to take my pants off to write this. As it is, the the X-803 is right up there as one of the...
  • A VERY DIRTY DAY

    “You gotta come out and see this,” Dave said to me one Friday. “I’m all about seeing things I have to see,” I replied. “What are you showing me?” “Here’s the address. I’ll be there around 10,” he replied....

    Waxed cotton was once the beautest thing a bearded BMW rider had ever seen. And back in the 1400s it certainly was beaut. But waxed cotton goes back even further than that. It came into being on the bodies...
  • GOOD OLD DAYS?

    I was over at my mate’s place the other night when I was suddenly gripped by a cruel cramp of dumb nostalgia. It all began as a rather beaut and typical Bloke Night. It was Friday, a case of...
  • 2018 TRIUMPH SPEED TRIPLE RS – BATTLER OF BRITAIN

    I’m a whole lot one-eyed about Speed Triples. I have owned four. I have loved them all with a passion. Even when one of them caught fire. When I bought the first twin-headlight model back in the 1800’s, I...
  • HELD M2M (MADE-TO-MEASURE) SR-X GLOVES – The difference bespoke makes

    I have lots of very good high-end motorcycle gear. It’s one of the benefits of working in the industry for so long. But while I have all the very finest off-the-shelf stuff, I have never had a custom-made-to-fit-me-only bit...
