As some of you may know I replaced my R125 with a very nice orange and black CBR600RR. I love the sports bike shape but had one slight issue

I’m a man who likes to keep it simple and multifunctional – and that means I’ve had my trusty paper map of the UK – just 99p from Morrisons, for many years now. It’s followed me from car to bike and although it’s lost half its cover all the key bits are still there.

Feeling a little light-headed? Size matters – particularly when buying a helmet. Chef reviews his latest lid.

Andrew has a Triumph Explorer to test over the next few days. Here is a photo preview of the test bike he has and I am sure Andrew will have the results of his initial tests of the bike to put up here. If you are a Triumph Explorer owner tell us your thoughts on […]

I have been looking at a more practical bike to replace the beautiful but feisty Ducati Multistrada. Two bikes are in the frame, the Triumph Explorer and the Honda Crosstourer, and I took the Crosstourer out in greasy, cold conditions and covered about 100 miles of urban (into and out of North east London) A […]

There’s a time in a man’s life when he has to face the truth. No longer is he a macho riding god, a cool rider oblivious to the elements, a rider in the storm. Here’s my review of custom made ear plugs by Ultimate Ear.

After having run out of ideas for mods to bolt onto my Yamaha, I decided to turn to adding some creature comforts

I have ridden into London and up to Birmingham in foggy, drizzly weather, with the Fog City inner visor in my Shoei Qwest and I was surprised that I was getting fogged up – so that I was riding with my visor up at motorway speeds. My I nor visor has done about 4500 mile […]

Good Afternoon one and all, I hope you are all enjoying this final blast of summer to get out there and ride your bikes before we find ourselves under a blanket of snow
