http://www.whichbike.com/motorcycle-reviews-blogs-news/entry/scratch-that-itch   As I am an impulsive person, and against my better halves better judgement. I quickly gathered together what money I could not afford and began the hunt for my fist pit bike. Unbeknownst to me at the time, the person who offered to let me come down and try his bike was starting up a new business importing MosterPRO Pit bikes: A cunning marketing ploy I must say, but, it worked. I bought one of the first 4 MonsterPRO pit bikes into the UK. I don't think that the brand imports into the UK any more, but shortly after i purchased the bike, the brand became the most sought after brand of supermoto pit bikes in the UK market. My little bike could possibly be seen as a collectors item.... i doubt it.  Every spare penny I had in the coming months, which unfortunately were leading into winter, were...

Hello WhichBike community, Recently got myself a new set of gloves for day to day riding & have been every impressed with comfort and manoeuvrability I wanted to share the joy. The number of gloves on the market is huge and can be overwhelming. At least I found it overwhelming. I headed off to my local motorcycle store and started to look through all the gloves. Before I dive into the review I guess your wondering why the fuss? A gloves a glove right? Well not always. A recent study by Liz de Rome, Rebecca Ivers, Michael Fitzharris, Wei Du, Narelle Haworth, Stephane Heritier & Drew Richardson 2011 found that a "substantial proportion of motorcycle designed gloves (25.7%), jackets (29.7%) and pants (28.1%) were assessed to have failed due to material damage in the crash. Conclusions: Motorcycle protective clothing is associated with reduced risk and severity of crash related injury and hospitalization,...

So, if you read my previous post you'll know that I was determined to get my full licence sorted... and I did it... And I managed it in a fairly short time frame.   THEORY TEST - booked it on 4th Feb 2015, passed on 3rd March 2015 I've kind of been practicing/revising for my theory ever since passing my CBT in April last year and trust me, LEARN THE HIGHWAY CODE (it does change every year), how you do it is up to you, but I recommend getting the latest copy and read it from cover to cover (blokes, leave it in the loo and when you do your erm... you know what! read a few pages over and over again!!!), I also got an app for my phone & tablet from Deep River Development called "Motorcycle Theory Test & Hazard", it has about 700-800 questions and also 42 hazard...

A few years back i had to take a break from bikes. This was down to the job etc, and so i sold my old CBR600F3, hung up my boots and put my leathers away. But, as any biker will tell you, once you have been bitten, it never goes away. And not before long I was surfing eBay for my next two wheeled stead. Alas, my having to work away, and then changing jobs, my dreams over being out on the open road did not come to fruition.  Despite these set backs, I could not get away from this two wheeled addiction that grasps any biker, and one day I came across the following video: I thought, "that looks awesome", and from then on I went about researching this wondrous new sport, which was and is massively popular, and is becoming more so year on year. I joined a couple...

Hyosung Cruise II (1st bike)
About 13 years ago I was struggling to find steady work, so I signed up with a number of employment agencies. This was very tough as I didn’t own a car and the low agency wages meant that I couldn’t afford to run a car. The agencies were constantly offering me work, but they were all 6-2 shifts at places which involved public transport (public transport didn’t start running until 6am), so I had to turn them all down. I decided that a small 125cc motorbike would be perfect for this due to the 100mpg claims - so I looked at loads of bikes and couldn’t decide on which one   I plucked up the courage to get my CBT sorted. So from never riding a motorbike in my life and passing my CBT (morning in a safe environment learning motorbike control, then an hour on the road) about a month...
