  • FOR THOSE BLAST-FURNACE DAYS

    IXON SPRINTER AIR JACKET REVIEW It’s hard to decide what to wear when it’s 44 degrees outside. Do you go nude and use lots of sunblock? Do you T-shirt and hope your toxic man-boobs don’t cause human-rights violations? Do...
  • SUNDAY NOT TOO FAR AWAY

    Sunday’s the day, huh? You hope it will be sunny, you call your mates, or you put up a post on Facebook because you have no mates, and off you go…up that same stretch of road you rode last...
  • 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...

  • 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....

    Social media is simply frothing with the bleats of shaved apes bleating about how slippery new tyres are. Some of you apes have even fallen off on those slippery new tyres, then further demeaned yourselves by commemorating the occasion...
  • OXFORD HERITAGE ROLL BAG – Looks trad, works rad

    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...
