Have a blast this autumn
James Archibald has a few bikes to choose from but it’s his old ZX-6R that gets dusted off for this jaunt
James Archibald lives, eats and breathes bikes as he works at Bridge Motorcycles in Exeter. And to really blow the cobwebs away from a day in the dealership helping others to realise their two-wheeled dreams, he goes for a blast around the Devon countryside.
James owns a Kawasaki ZX-6R, a Suzuki GSX-R1000 and a Kawasaki ZXR400 (in bits). But it’s the 600 he pulls the sheet off for this one. He said: “It doesn’t take too long to enjoy some absolutely fantastic roads with this loop that starts and finishes in Exeter. If fast sweepers with a fair few technical sections are your bag, then look no further.
“Now is the best time of the year to check out Devon and the South West. As summer becomes an obstacle course of unsure drivers and caravans and the county is flooded with tourists, hit it midweek outside of rush-hour between now and the end of autumn for the very best of it.”
