Budget Bike Battle | ZX-7R Update
While the SRAD lays dormant at JHS Racing awaiting further surgery, and I plan the next haemorrhaging of spondoolies, Chris has been, erm, busy doing nothing with the ZX-7R. Okay, that isn’t strictly accurate, but he’s adopted a far more frugal/lazy approach to the Budget Bike Battle and even... Read more
LIVE: 2018 Ducati MotoGP Presentation

Live from... 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
Ridden: Ian Hutchinson’s Tyco BMW
I’m sat on the startline at Goodwood Festival of Speed, waiting for my run up the hill. James Hillier has just peppered me in Metzeler rubber after smoking his rear tyre. Initially, I thought he was warming the tyre. It soon transpired he was purposely trying to cover me... Read more
Flashback: Super Duke GTs to Austrian MotoGP
This time last year, I was recovering from my stag weekend. It wasn’t a very civilised affair and many boundaries were broken. My soul was broken too, but there wasn’t time to mope around and contemplate the debauchery (even if the Waybuloo theme tune sparked emotional turmoil) because we... Read more
Video: ECU Flashing
Some forms of flashing are frowned upon, and rightly so. However, ECU flashing has become a staple part of sportsbike lifestyle in recent years, particularly as superstock racing now permits ECU fettling, and rightly so. Is the good old fashioned fuelling module redundant? Based on these results, yes. At... Read more

Will there be a new Triumph Daytona? We think so…
Probably the most frequently asked question over the past 12 months: will there be a new Triumph Daytona coming soon? The Daytona 675 has been, without doubt, the best ‘600’ supersports bike in recent years – possibly ever – and that’s without a whiff of patriotism. Its discontinuation is... Read more
