By Chris Fisher 10 November 2018 No comments

The International Exhibition of Cycle, Motorcycle and Accessories (catchy eh? better to call it EICMA) is upon us once again, and manufacturers left, right and centre are revealing their shiny new creations to the public for the first time. This is a round up of 10 of my favourite bikes that I've seen come out of EICMA so far.

Guide to Categories of Motorcycle

By Chris Fisher 2 September 2018 No comments

If you’re new to the world of motorcycles, or simply don’t look at bikes outside your usual preference, chances are the various types of them are a bit of a minefield. With modern motorcycles, new styles have appeared and some even straddle two or more categories.

Biker Stereotypes - Are you one of them?

By Chris Fisher 25 August 2018 No comments

If there’s one thing that’s synonymous with bikers, it’s stereotypes. People who don’t ride bikes generally have one for us – nutters who drive at 100mph between cars, but bikers have their own ones, and we all know someone who conforms to at least one of them!

(Note, these are all made in jest…however if you take offence to any of these stereotypes, there’s a good chance you might just conform to one!)

In today's post I'm going to cover the relatively recent invention of kevlar and aramid fibre jeans.

Yamaha XJ6 Review

By Chris 27 January 2018 2 comments

This week I thought it was time to share my thoughts on the Yamaha XJ6 Diversion. I have owned it for six years now, starting on a 33bhp restriction for two years and then unrestricted from then on. I've ridden quite a few other bikes, but I've never got around to selling it on - it's a great all round package that will do almost anything you ask of it.
