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

Kawasaki’s supercharged H2R has owned 2015 in terms of horsepower and willy-waving... Read more
Ducati TriOptions Cup: Rd6 Assen
I’m no overly religious person (some say it could be atheism) but I sure as hell love spanking a bike at the Cathedral of Speed. Round 6 of the Ducati TriOptions Cup joined the annual BSB pilgrimage to Assen, and it was a story of highly highs and lowly... Read more
