Ducati V4S Streetfighter

Taking my bike for a service has become a bit of a chore now my local dealer has moved from Romford to Maldon. It’s not too far away to be fair, but if you haven’t got time it can be awkward, I used to drop it off the day before, […]

SC1 – A New Bike in a Can?

Having noticed this product being used in a number of YouTube videos, not specifically related to detailing or after cleaning, I thought I’d give it a try for myself. Not particularly cheap at £11.99 for a 12oz rattle can but apparently the idea is a little goes a long way. […]

Super Bikes

Nowadays, we seem to get every new top of the range bike released with more and more powerful engines, some even pushing out over 200 BHP 😳, and weighing under 200 KG. It’ll be like siting on a rocket and holding on as if your life depended on it, and […]

Ducati 900ss

Classic bike, good or bad choice?

Well this is quite a long and strange,  maybe even a story we can all learn from. My parents live in the Algarve Portugal, which in addition to the glorious weather has some fantastic roads. I’ve always wanted to ride a bike over there and often thought about hiring one. […]
