44Teeth’s 2015 Predictions
The other day, someone asked us what will happen to motorcycling this year, so we gazed into the 44Teeth crystal meth ball to reveal the (possible) highlights* of 2015… January – As most of January is done now, we’ll go straight to February as there’s less to get wrong, therefore slashing...

Trackday Insurance
In between delivering engaging content and sleeping, we’ve been busy trying to insure our arses, and the machinery, in order to continue with this content deliverance. It ain’t easy, this insurance malarky, but we’ve stumbled across a company offering trackday cover for the masses. After dealing with specialist underwriters,... Read more
Photo of the Week: Eddie Lawson
When men were men, when anti-wheelie was a mere thought in the minds of exceptionally clever men, when American men were good at racing GP bikes. Amen. Men. If you didn’t know, this is Eddie Lawson in 1992 giving it big licks on his infamous Cagiva C593. We’re unsure on the... Read more
2015: The Year of the Sportsbike
I feel compelled to write this. Compelled by a burning passion for sportsbikes, compelled by misguided, sometimes deluded people who have jumped on the meaty bandwagon of propaganda. And, having spent my whole life as a sportsbike fanatic, I’m trying hard not to be an opinionated twat but it’s... Read more

Stuck for a last-minute Christmas present? Looking for that special gift for a loved one, or just fancy the ultimate trackday toy? Short of a winning lottery ticket or time travel capabilities, the present firmly on top of my list to Santa is a MotoGP bike. After three years... Read more
GANNET Tracker
  On the eve of Ducati’s Scrambler world press launch in the US, we’ve just received this from design kings, GANNET. Ulfert Janssen, the man behind GANNET, continually punts out some stunning design concepts and this ‘Coppertail’ is no different.

KTM Winter Rebuild
In the summer of 2014 I was fortunate enough to be selected for a ‘Win The Beast’ competition by KTM. Four riders from four countries were given a KTM 1290 Super Duke R to rag around on for the summer. Nice. So after jumping though various task hoops and shamelessly... Read more
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
