2017 Triumph TIGER 1200 Press Launch - Almeria Worldwide Copyright: ©Triumph

2018 Triumph Tiger 1200 Review

In isolation, the Triumph Tiger Explorer was an excellent workhorse: comfy, solid with a sexy soundtrack. Against its more modern adventure bike peers, the Trumpet felt like a tired, saggy old granny that lacked some 21st century essentials. Thankfully, there are over 100 changes to the Tiger 1200 for 2018 – not least ditching the ‘Explorer’ tag from its model… Read more →

Video: 2017 Yamaha R6 Review

There’s nowt like spanking a screaming supersports weapon in the Spanish sunshine, which is exactly what we did during the 2017 Yamaha R6 press launch at Almeria. 17 years after the original release, the class stalwart gets humble yet effective updates for this season, including bastard Euro4 compliancy and some far sexier chassis tweaks.   We tried to seamlessly encompass… Read more →

Video: Scott Redding Q&A

It’s not often you get a text from a MotoGP rider declaring his free time to ‘do something.’ In a rare extended period in the UK, Scott Redding was present at his Young Riders Academy in Swindon (the minimoto mecca for aspiring talent) and couldn’t resist the urge to get involved in some 44Teeth shenanigans. In another cutting-edge VanVlogs video,… Read more →

Video: Triumph Bobber Review

Sometimes – just sometimes – we’re guilty of launch fever: hysteria surrounding a certain bike triggered by sunny climes, sexual roads in foreign lands and a damn good post-ride piss-up. Not this time. Triumph’s Bonneville Bobber will taste just as good in Blighty as it did in on the launch in Madrid, even sober, and Hinckley deserves the unconditional praise… Read more →

Video: 2017 Yamaha MT-09 Review

Hopefully you’ve studied the prose, now it’s time to witness the hos wheelies. Yep, it’s the 2017 Yamaha MT-09 review video shot in Majorca at the press launch, garnished with a hint of Baron back in Blighty. I think you’ll agree the intro is ground-breaking in the world of motorcycling and wouldn’t look out of place in an M&S advert. … Read more →

Video: STAG Weekender featuring Nurse Shagwell

Who doesn’t love a good stag do? I certainly wasn’t loving mine on the Monday morning, laying vegetated in a state of despair and guilt. My best men decided that Brighton would be a suitable venue, and who was I to dispute such an idea? Coincidently, the chosen dates coincided with Pride weekend. Needless to say the run-up to four… Read more →

Video: Panigale Pre-race Prep

We’re lucky enough to work with one of the best teams in the British Superbike paddock, not just amongst the throng of Ducati Cup runners. The P&H/Carl Cox squad amass endless hours of behind-the-scenes grafting and bike prep before and after every race. Race weekends are merely a fraction of what really goes on, which is probably why they’ve bagged… Read more →

Video: Austrian MotoGP Special – GT to GP – EP01

As many 44T regulars will have clocked, we went on a little adventure to Austria recently, beginning at Salzburg airport and culminating at the Red Bull Ring for an awesome weekend of GP action. Fresh from a solo Euro excursion, Baron met me at the airport and we started a sketchy taxi-bike journey on his lordship’s GS – with a… Read more →

Video: R1 v ZX-10R – 44Tour Episode 02

44Tour, Day 2, Limoges to Carcassonne. By now, our gussets had (nearly) dried, the glorious French roads were dry and the GS was no longer the preferred choice of mechanical propulsion, despite its pilot – Gary – decking the panniers at any given opportunity. The R1 and ZX-10R were well and truly shredding sidewall rubber, relishing the desolate highways and… Read more →

Video: R1 v ZX-10R – 44Tour Episode 01

There isn’t a better, more thorough method of testing sportsbikes than riding 1000 European road miles in every possible condition followed by two days of balls-deep circuit appraisal – garnished with mates for the full flavour. Here’s the first episode of our eagerly anticipated Yamaha R1 v Kawasaki ZX-10R: several hundred miles from the UK to Limoges ruined by torrential… Read more →

Video: James Hillier’s 2016 Kawasaki ZX-10R Superbike

As you probably would have gathered by now, we spent some time with James Hillier – the third fastest man ever to lap the Isle of Man TT course – down at his team base of Bournemouth Kawasaki in, erm, Bournemouth. There was our TT-based chat and Maccas drive-thru VanVlogs, but we also were lucky enough to witness the birthing… Read more →
