This sun is making me sad (bike thoughts)

This sun is making me sad (bike thoughts)

I no longer recognise the advent of summer through the growth and shine of the multicoloured display of flora that can so resplendently decorate our British countryside. No. Now, it’s the unmistakably delicious sound of 12k/rpm combined with the rainbow effect the vibrant expression of leathers have at 100MPH. On the sea front this weekend at Brighton I actually saw a Panigale, which I think is the first time I’ve seen one since I sold mine pretty much dead on a year ago. It gave me a chill but in the same way one would […]

Panigale has its swansong.

I’m lucky that I’ve been privileged enough to have owned, driven and enjoyed some incredible machinery over the years. Having spent 10 years steadily and incrementally building my experiences with cars, jumping onto two wheels, as a recent departure, has also been the most dramatic.

Fisher Price my first bike – Triumph Daytona 675R

Now something I’m not is an expert on motorbikes. I can dissect a car down to its core values and offer enough experienced commentary to establish myself as qualified opinion. However, with motorbikes I’m starting from a blank canvas, which makes any form of judgement on this bike completely pointless. It’s also a high benchmark. You see, I’m starting my motorbiking life on a high note. Most people would go for a comfortable tourer or a cheap bike that won’t hurt when dropped. Instead, I promised myself not to drop it and to make sure […]
