Riding Buildbase Suzuki’s British Superbike
When you get an invite to ride any sort of pukka racing machine, you don’t say no. So after months of planning and receiving call from Mr Suzuki, asking if we’d like a spin on a factory-backed British Superbike, I didn’t say no. I am, of course, referring to... Read more
Zwarte Cross 2018
What happens when you bring 220,000 crazy partygoers into a festival atmosphere, chuck in an international-spec motocross track and a complete lack of health and safety, and a few KTM 790 Dukes?

Happy New Year to all 44Teefers. We hope you drank plenty, the turkey comedown wasn’t too horrendous, and Santa bought a big sack of kickass. Apologies for the lack of fresh content recently on this splendiferous site; it’s a new year and, while the videos have been flowing, we’ve... Read more
Budget Bike Battle | Dyno Challenge | ZX-7R v SRAD
I’m continuously banging on about dyno numbers being just numbers, because they are, but we can’t let that get in the way of a good old skirmish. There’s nothing like a head-to-head dyno session with your mate, although in this instance, Chris and the Ninja are not my mates.... Read more
