How To… Prepare the bike to ride with a pillion

A pillion at the back not only means you can share your experiences; it means there will be some extra weight that will affect how your bike behaves. Obviously, the bigger and more powerful the bike is, the less it will be affected, but absolutely any bike is affected when it carries more weight on it.

Review – BMW G 310 R

The bike accelerates with pure precision. It listens to everything you ask of it and obeys immediately, there is no delayed response. Not only is it smooth in the way it rides and flows down the road, but it is powerful and comfortably reaches speeds of 60mph down national speed limit roads; its small engine is nowhere to be seen.

Review – Schuberth C4 Helmet

Review of the new Schubert C4. Overall, the Schuberth C4 is a brilliant helmet. It is expensive but worth the money. Something to consider is that Schuberth will give you 5 years warranty which adds extra value to it.

We all love that feeling of riding smoothly along the road. We live for the thrill of the throttle. We desire to dominate that stomach lurching corner, riding off into the distance with utter ease. But the real question is, do we do so with our leather jacket, open face helmet and classic style? Or, do we sacrifice all that for top performance?

There is always a first time for everything

Hugh Laurie: “Driving a motorcycle is like flying. All your senses are alive. When I ride through Beverly Hills in the early morning, and all the sprinklers have turned off, the scents that wash over me are just heavenly.”
