Don't get me wrong, that's a nice video and it does show that a GS can tackle a track with a decent rider. But the same can be said for almost any bike (OK, not a Harley maybe, but that's just down to geometry...). You often see people claiming that their touring/roadster bike can 'keep up with my m...
Those snazzy T5 Transporters are cool looking, very car-like to drive and have all the kudos that goes with the surf-scene. But if you are serious about regularly carrying two or more bikes, two or three people and all their kit then you really need a larger panel van: LWB Transit, Merc Sprinter, VW...

Here we go, one persecuted minority picking on another. We don't like it aimed at us but are happy to do it to others. Yes my missus rides and has a very well mannered horse on the road.

Hi Simon. The ride from Vielha up through Auch, Agen, Bergerac, Perigeux... takes a while because of all the town roundabouts you need to do but it's much better riding than the autoroute alternative. If you can push ahead and do an 8/9 hour riding day you could overnight at Motobreaks. Then you'd h...

That 'Bikesafe' officious, self-appointed policeman/knob is exactly the opposite of why I became a biker back in the early 80s. We used to be a slightly rebellious, unconventional bunch who rode bikes to be individual, a bit non-conformist and different. What has happened to biking in the UK? It's b...
