0 Bike review: Ducati XDiavel

There is only the XDiavel. Nothing else counts. Not if you want a cruiser that’ll rip the hearts out of all those pretenders that prance down boulevards telling the girls that 60, 80 or even 100 horsepower is tough. I make no bones of the fact I love lazy, inefficient,…

0 Storm Chaser: perfect conditions for a ride

The north-west of Tasmania is home to some pretty amazing roads and incredible scenery. It often feels to me as though I’m riding in another country. A mysterious island continent merging threads of global motorcycling magic, all patch-worked together and hidden in a kind of Bermuda Triangle at the bottom…

0 REVIEW: DUCATI MULTISTRADA ENDURO

The Multistrada Enduro is so extraordinarily good you’d think Ducati had Dakar-dominating heritage going back years, not all that Superbike-winning experience.

0 Bike review: Harley Roadster

If I sounded a bit hard on the Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight in issue 123, it’s only because it wasn’t a Roadster. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the Forty-Eight and embraced its short, uncomfortable suspension and other compromises because its compromises were what make it such an endearing and focussed motorcycle.…

0 Throttle Roll: Old-bike culture meets new-bike industry

The anger behind the response caught me off guard. The “no” wasn’t just firm, it was aggressive. Like a door slamming in my face. Turns out I hadn’t just suggested something unreasonable, I’d caused great offence by it. Who’d have thought that the idea of customising a bike would be…

0 Review: Yamaha MT-03

Can a 300cc motorcycle really qualify as a Yamaha MT? The MT designation has variously stood for Monster Torque, Mighty Torque, Massive Torque and probably other interpretations of what should by now be an obvious theme. Torque. This is not torque as we know it in the 1600cc MT-01 that…
