2022 Isle of Man TT start numbers announced
Start numbers for the 2022 Isle of Man TT have just been announced for the Superbike and Senior TT races (and they’ll probably be the same for the Superstock race). Leading the boys off will be the familiar sight of 23-time TT winner John McGuiness on a Honda, who’ll... Read more
Who’s going to win BSB in 2022?
As the green flag waves on the first official test of the 2022 British Superbike season, I thought I ought to have a stab at who I think’s going to end the year on top; if only so, come October, I can look back at my predictions and see... Read more
The truth about filtering.
Filtering. It’s one of the many benefits of riding a motorcycle. And whilst the act of overtaking traffic by riding between lanes is perfectly legal (for the most part), anyone that’s ever done any filtering will have almost certainly received some sort of abuse from upset (and frankly jealous)...

Classic Motorcycles | I finally get it.
When I wore a younger man’s clothes, I had no real interest in classic anything, least of all classic motorcycles. Why would anyone want to own, let alone ride, a bike that looks like it should either be in a museum or a scrapyard? I just didn’t get it.... Read more
The biggest crash I’ve ever seen, and why it happened.
I’ve seen some whopping crashes in my time, but MM93’s monster 100mph highside in yesterday’s MotoGP warmup session might have been the biggest crash I have ever seen. And it came after a bit of a run of crashes. I’m not talking about his run of crashes spanning the... Read more
MotoGP Indonesia 2022 | Rider Ratings
As per last year’s WSBK race at the new Pertamina Mandalika Street Circuit in Indonesia, yesterday’s MotoGP race was delayed, delayed and delayed again, thanks to biblical levels of rainfall. I suppose that’s what happens when you build a race track next to a rain forest. Anyway, a shortened... Read more
Where are the best and worst road surfaces in England?
A few months ago, I expressed an unpopular opinion about the state of the road surfaces here in the UK. I said that although there are a few roads that could use a bit of TLC, overall the vast majority are well built, well maintained and generally in good... Read more
