All you need to know about the 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa
Hayabusa means peregrine falcon in Japanese. Peregrine falcons are not only the fastest animal on earth, they also love to feast on blackbirds. And that’s exactly what Suzuki wanted the Hayabusa to do; to eat Honda’s Blackbird for breakfast. They’ve been around since 1999, they’ve sold nearly 200,000 units... Read more

Isle of Man TT: A Newcomer’s Perspective
How does one rationally portray the absurdity of racing at the Isle of Man TT? Even the greatest wordsmiths would have difficulty in articulating first-hand experiences, so I’m really going to struggle here.

When knowledge isn’t power…
Myself and BvG were present at Silverstone last week for the Suzuki all-star trackday. We got to sample the GSX-R range (more on that later) and Baron nearly fell in love with the GSX-S1000F (more on that later, too), sharing the track with a host of super-fast racers and... Read more
