  • FALCO FENIX AIR – SEXY ITALIAN DANCIN’ SLIPPERS

    I debuted Mr Gianni Falco’s stylish new foot-savers at a frigid Morgan Park raceway during the recent Triumph Speed Triple press launch. I left some of them on the tarmac too. On purpose. I certainly would have loved testing...
  • NEEDLE THREADING

    While I was very pleased our rulers made lane-splitting/-filtering legal the other year, its previous illegality was never in my mind as I did it. It is always far better to be tried by 12 than carried by 6,...
  • THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE

    “Why have we stopped here?” Brother Silverback eventually asked. I knew he didn’t really care and was only asking out of politeness, so I responded in kind. “Because I like stopping in the middle of nowhere and basking in...
  • 2018 HONDA CB1000R REVIEW – GO AWAY, NICE PEOPLE

    Honda’s A-Game, when it chooses to deploy it, is the very best in the world. It is, after all, the company that not only created the first true superbike but followed it up with a gloriously storied racing history...
  • BREAD AND CIRCUSES – British MotoGP with Tug McClutchin

    It was a sombre trip for me. It never had much of a chance though. I hate buses, because they are full of smelly, noisy public-type people. For someone who travels the world and rarely sits astride his own...
  • IXON OWEN FLASH PANTS – My bum looks so beaut in these

    Motorcycle pants have to do three things really well. Firstly, they must do the best they can for your jolly pink skin if the unthinkable happens and you’re grinding your way down the road on your arse. Or thighs....
  • SLOW, FAT AND LAZY

    You all know what the biggest-selling motorcycle brand in Australia is, right? It’s Honda. It supplies Australia Post with postie motorcycles, which takes up a meaningful chunk of its 2076 bike-sales. So what’s number two? That’d be Harley, with...
  • Ring A Ding Ding – Red Bull Ring MotoGP with Tug McClutchin.

    I like Austria. It’s like Australia, only much more efficient syllabically. They have better beer than us, a vastly prettier landscape (it is a country that lies predominately in the European Alps after all), and it has a culture...
  • JUST1 J14 ADVENTURE HELMET – “Oh my…what a steep cliff…”

    I wore Just1’s latest offering to the Adventure market for three whole days on the recent Suzuki Adventure ride. I wore it in temperatures ranging from minus-seven to “I wish the sun would do its bloody job”. I wore...
  • ON MANY SUNDAYS – JUNE 2018

      On many Sundays all over the world, people go motorcycle riding. It’s replaced church, and rightly so. Groups of mates often ride wildly disparate motorcycles in wildly different ways, but they still ride together and remain mates because...
