CHAD’S GREAT NORTH RUN

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Road Test -

BMW F800GT

Av­er­age MPG 67 Miles to re­serve 177 The­o­ret­i­cal tank range 221 At 75mph or be­low it’s an up­lift­ing place to spend many hours. Large screen and body­work of­fer the best pro­tec­tion, the seat is comfy, plus it has elec­tronic ad­justable sus­pen­sion. The twin is fru­gal, but above 75mph a lit­tle vibey. Se­nior Road Tester Adam Child commutes 90 miles each way from his home in Goole, York­shire to MCN HQ in Peter­bor­ough. So

DU­CATI SU­PERS­PORT

Av­er­age MPG 42.1 Miles to re­serve 130 The­o­ret­i­cal tank range 149 You sit very much in the bike rather than on it, the bars are an easy reach but pegs a lit­tle high. Seat isn’t as comfy as the BMW, and mir­rors vi­brate a lot. In this com­pany, the tank range isn’t good enough. who bet­ter to grind out the se­ri­ously big miles in a quest to dis­cover what our all-rounders are like on a long run?

YAMAHA TRACER 900

Av­er­age MPG 59 Miles to re­serve 187 The­o­ret­i­cal tank range 236 Roomy rid­ing po­si­tion would suit a larger rider and pil­lion. Bars are com­fort­ably wide and pegs are low. The seat is on the hard side, as is the stan­dard set up, but given the choice I’d opt for the Yamaha.
