Photo of the Week: Northern Lights
Ok, so trials isn’t exactly 44teeth.com fodder, but we couldn’t ignore this epic photography courtesy of Red Bull and Dougie Lampkin, captured by Rutger Pauw. The 12-time world champion is the star of ‘Tundra Trial’ which is released today, and is a film where Lampkin performs lots of cool skids and wheelies around Lapland... Read more
It’s all about the Benjamins…
Having spent the past few days getting jumped over/crashing my brains out at the Mick Extance school in deepest, darkest Wales, we hit the pub and got onto the touchy topic of making a living from racing. And it got me thinking… I’ve written about the subject in a... Read more
When 326bhp isn’t enough…
Hidden amongst the plethora of talent displayed at the NEC last week was this stealth beauty. To celebrate 30 years of Ninja, Kawasaki UK has been working with Jarrod ‘Jack’ Frost and his Holeshot Racing armoury to create a turbocharged ZX-10R. The H2R and its dyno spectacle may have... Read more
Project 2015: Part 1
  Embroiled in social media banter last night, I was outlining a potential new legislation to recognise depression during racing off-season as an official medical disorder. It’s only been six weeks since the last round of BSB, and it’s already painful. But the off-season is a whole lot more... Read more
Hire Car Heroes: James Whitham
Any top-level racer from back in’t day will have an extensive reel of hire car stories, and James Whitham is no different. After incriminating himself on numerous occasions, Whit settled on an expensive night at Donington Park involving his own car – or rather Honda’s car – and a few... Read more
RIDE: Game Preview
As we’ve mentioned previously, the motorcycling/gaming world has been crying out for a Forza/Gran Tourismo offshoot since time began. Well, we can all rejoice in Milestone’s latest creation: RIDE.  I don’t pretend to be a gamer, although I’m a sucker for bike games and the occasional trip to a... Read more
Photo of the Week: Moto3 Mayhem
It’s not often you get the chance to ride a GP bike. It’s not often you get the chance to go elbow-down on a GP bike. Baron, the jammy git, managed both in one day, although his lap times weren’t quite up to swaying Red Bull into a full-time... Read more
RIDE: all-new bike game released
The motorcycling world has been crying out for a Forza/Gran Tourismo-type computer game, and Milestone (the creators of MotoGP ’14) is on the verge of releasing one. RIDE has direct involvement and backing from all the major bike manufacturers, and a few not so major, so that means over 100... Read more
Photo of the Week: Flamin’ 1290
Nothing like a sexy flame and smoke combo to end the week. This arrangement comes courtesy of Baron’s KTM 1290 Super Duke R, and a slightly ‘tuned’ Akrapovic silencer…   Read more
Crash, Bang, Bugger…
Racing is a bit like having a poo: push too hard and it’ll end in a bloody mess. I’ve spent 2014 racing in the Ducati TriOptions Cup alongside the British Superbikes, and on one fateful Saturday afternoon at Silverstone, my ambition far outweighed my talent. When you see P1... Read more
Yamaha XV950 Boltage Concept
There were lots of lavish techno queens unveiled at the Milan show but this retrosexual café racer concept from Yamaha also caught grabbed our attention. This is the handy work of the (unfortunately-named) Bender brothers from Germany. Raphael and Christian transformed a bog-stock XV950 into the Boltage as part... Read more
GANNET Kawasaki H2
  The internet is rife with shoddy renderings of concept bikes and innovative, bastardised stylisations, but there is the occasional gem: like this GANNET-designed Kawasaki H2. The supercharged, trellis-framed monster blew everyone’s back door off when Kawasaki unveiled it in Cologne, and GANNET has added another flavour. Ulfert Janssen... Read more
