YOU & YOURS
Where you and your bikes run the show.
Hakon VB Kawasaki ZX-10R
After living abroad for two years and leaving the Kawasaki on its own with only a friend checking in, it was so good to be reunited and get back out. As soon as I moved back home I rode the 600km+ route over the mountains to visit my grandma, which was a good seven hours of amazing scenery and roads!
Wayne Oliver Suzuki GSX-R750 K4
I love my GSX-R750! It took me on a road trip to North Wales from Worthing clocking up over 1,000 miles in three days which wasn’t too shabby. It may be 13 years old but is still a joy to go out and have a play on and proves that age doesn’t matter!
Adam Eborall Kawasaki ZX-9R
Here’s my 2003 ZX-9R, equipped with carbon Dymag wheels, K-Tech fork springs, an Ohlins shock, Akrapovic/Ladybird titanium exhaust, Accossato quick action throttle, SBS sintered pads and Continental Race Attack tyres. Fair to say the best ride was a sunny day at Donington Park with No-Limits – she went well for a big old girl!
TomWillard KTM RC390
I love my 2015 KTM RC390 (15,600 miles) as it’s a capable and surprising machine – despite the slightly wobbly suspension, and the fact that the belly pan and Akrapovic exhaust scrapes the ground when you are having fun, the RC390 provides tonnes of playful and exciting riding miles (even if you can only do 100 miles before the fuel warning light comes on)!
It’s surprisingly good with a passenger, can upset much bigger bikes on the roads, looks exotic and racy, and is everything you’d need and expect from a small capacity sports bike. Would recommend it to any rider, both new and old, as it’s so easy to get on with and always loads of fun! Best ride this summer was travelling to the BSB weekend at Snetterton, and getting to see all the KTM RC390 Cup bikes blast around the circuit! It made me very jealous that I couldn’t take mine out there though...
Robert Hudson Kawasaki Ninja H2
What do you think of my 2016 Ninja H2? I’ve stuck a full titanium H2R replica exhaust, BST carbon wheels, various carbon bits and a DNA filter on it, which means it now makes 260bhp at the rear wheel. Every ride is interesting!
EricWard Honda CBR600F
Check out my 2013 CBR600F which has 1,000k on the clock! This is because I work in Ghana and my bike is in São Paulo, Brazil. Back to the beauty on Sunday and can’t wait!
Richard Thackham Ducati Monster 1200S
I’ve had my 2017 Ducati Monster 1200S for about five weeks now and absolutely love it. I have had Ducatis now for the last 25 years and this is the first one that is comfortably ridable in town, the fuelling and throttle are silky smooth. The bike is also the best handling Ducati I have ever had (not had a Panigale though) and with all the electronics I have more confidence in the bike which in turn leads to more fun – after all I’m not Rossi!
