When word got out about the RS 660, we were all pretty gosh darn excited. We rode the RS last year and, despite not being able to firmly place it in a particular motorcycle genre, were pretty impressed with its peachy little engine, the way it handled and its space-age tech. That said, the...
When you’ve sold as many Monsters as Ducati have – more than 350,000 – you know you’re onto a winner. But whilst the Monster 1200 always seemed to be exactly what it said on the tin (a Monster), its smaller sibling, the Monster 900 never seemed quite as monstrous as I’d have liked….
BMW has finally given the S 1000 R a long-overdue update; it’s 5.1kg lighter, it’s got a new chassis and yes, before you ask, it does include the newer spec S 1000 RR based engine… sort of. Ok, it’s not in the same 200bhp+ state of tune and you don’t get shifting cams, but essentially, it’s…
As I write this, I should be on my way to the Isle of Man for the 2021 TT Races. But I’m not. Because the 2021 TT races aren’t happening. Cheers COVID. It’s the second year on the trot the highlight of my year has been canned, and I’m... Read more
Ever made love to a motorcycle? No, me neither. But that might change when I see one of these puppies in the flesh. The 2021 MV Agusta F3 is the latest edition to the Rosso range and, like the rest of MV’s three-cylinder bikes, it’s had some saucy upgrades.... Read more
The truth is finally out. A recent study says, on average, motorcyclists do indeed have larger penises than non-motorcyclists. The findings come after years of division, with non-motorcyclists claiming to have penises equal to (if not bigger than) their motorcycling peers. The multimillion pound survey, which included a whopping... Read more
I’ve lost count of the times I’ve heard people say things like this. But it’s usually said by people that have never raced, or even ridden, a bike. Because anyone that has, knows that the bike certainly doesn’t do all the work. And that riding one fast, even for... Read more
One of my favourite things about racing motorbikes is that there are so many ways to do it. I’ve been lucky enough to have a go at quite a few of them, and I like them all. But I think I’ve got a new favourite. It‘s a test of... Read more
I hate to say it, but my love for World Superbikes hasn’t got any stronger in recent years. And I know I’m not the only one. I put it down to one thing; the fact that Jonathan Rea just seems to be consistently that little bit better than the... Read more
When someone says “Supersport”, most of us think of screaming R6s, CBR 600RRs, ZX-6Rs and the like. Whether you’re riding them on the road, watching them race on the telly, or racing them yourself, 600cc Supersport bikes have been dishing out bucket-loads of excitement for as long as most...

Are you married? Do you have a significant other? Or do you live by your lonesome? You may think that to keep your bike in the living room you’d need to be the consummate bachelor. But I’m here to tell you that you don’t. All of us at 44Teeth... Read more
Every day bad drivers cause accidents on the road. Most of the time nobody gets hurt, there’s an insurance claim or two to fix a bent bumper and everyone lives happily ever after. Sometimes it’s a lot worse. Sometimes cars, bikes, and worse, lives are destroyed. So road traffic... Read more
Who’d have thought getting ready for a major international motorcycle competition would be so complicated? We’re eight months away from the Dakar Rally, and we’re already balls-deep in Dakar prep and general rally-bike related faffery. And with the first Dakar qualification rally looming (Andalucía Rally, 12th – 16th May... Read more
I love summer. And it’s not just because the ladies tend to dress more scantily. Although, I’ll admit, that is a bonus. No, I love summer because there is so much more stuff you can do. Don’t get me wrong, I’m the first to drag the off-road bikes out... Read more
Throughout history, Great Britain has had some ‘great’ British bike racers. Barry Sheene, Ron Haslam, Carl Fogarty, to name but a few. And although the popularity of motorcycle racing here in Blighty is minuscule compared to the likes of Italy, Spain, and other such nations, we have still managed... Read more
