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

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Contents -

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.”

‘Hit it mid­week be­fore the end of au­tumn’
