Ducati ST2

Touring on a Ducati is a contradiction in terms for most bikers. The Italian machines are renowned for many things, but bimbling along admiring the scenery isn’t usually top of the list. So, the ST2 sports-touring model was a bold step for the Bologna...

BMW Luftmeister K1

The BMW KI isn’t perhaps everyone’s idea of the ideal turbocharged sports machine, but there’s no denying that its weight and aerodynamic bodywork should keep things reasonably stable. Then again, anyone who dials in maximum boost and tries to extract a...

BMW R1150R

BMW have always made very practical and reliable motorcycles. They have also been tarred with the epitaph ’boring’, and perhaps as a result have tried to change their image. You may not like BMW’s but you do have to respect their bikes’ individuality and...

CCM 604

How do road racers learn to go faster round corners, in winter? Mostly, they go off-road. Y’see, there’s no substitute for learning how to control a motorcycle at the ragged edge, than to grab hold of a big 600cc, four stroke enduro machine, then head for...
