Hello Fellow Riders, Wanted to share some personal experience and insight into two types of riding boots that I've been using of late. The old pair that I've had for four years, ROSSI ROADSTER SHORT ANKLE, versus the second and new pair I purchased being the RST STUNT BOOT (without heal).  After 4 years of use and 2 seasons of North American Winter (lived in NY for 2 years & didn't want to buy walking boots) the Rossi's were looking and feeling a-little worn.  The Rossi boots have been and are very sturdy and strong. They were my first pair of riding boots. Without any comparison, I've not had reason to complain about them too much. My only real issue was the stiffness and lack of flexibility when walking. There was never any real bend to the boot.  As for riding, the Rossi's were very sturdy and you could feel the...

First up, apologies but it was a very windy day and I was unaware that the mic was picking up the gusts so I had to cut most of the vid for the XRx. Also, I don't have GoPro type camera so no on-board action. It's over 24 hours since I rode these bikes and looking back my heart was ruling my head.  The XRx was the sensible bike and actually very nice and usable all year round.  The Street was an adrenalin buzz and a lovely engaging bike.  If I was a bit younger the Street would win hands down and it did on the day but on reflection the XRx would make more sense for me.  The Street was a bit cramped (I think the R has a slightly more sporty riding position)  and I'd be uncomfortable for long rides, cos I'm old and fat ;) I'm not...

Hey guys! So this would seem to be my first ever blog post on the site, and I can't thank you enough to be given the opportunity to be part of the WhichBike.com team, it's a pleasure. I've been running my own channel for just over a year, and to be honest I haven't really expected much to come out of it, with only a handful of subscribers (which I've always said I'm not too fussed about). But looking over the past year since the day I first put a Drift on my head, got on my then restricted SV650S, I'd never have dreamed I'd be doing the things I am doing today, so thanks all! For those that don't know much about me and my channel, I'm The Rampant Rider, a strange name I know, but it stuck... I'm originally from the far land we call Norwich, Norfolk, and no.......

Hello WhichBike, Well after 20 years & a few intermittent years of fair-weather riding I got my license and bought a new bike at the ripe ol'age of 45 but this comes with a major commitment. That is we have laws that restrict all new riders to buying a 1000cc bike.  I will break this down for those not in NSW Australia. To obtain a NSW rider licence you must complete various stages of training and testing. The training covers the key skills required for riding on the road and are taught in two stages – pre-learner and pre-provisional. If there is no training centre in your area, you are encouraged to do the rider training, but it is not compulsory. New riders are required to pass through three licensing stages before obtaining a full rider licence. • Learner rider licence. • Provisional rider licence, stage 1 (P1-red). • Provisional rider licence,...

Well, on Sat 14.2.15 I managed to get an hour or so out on the mt09 Tracer. Having been shown the controls and menu system I jumped on board, but it was immediately apparent the seat, in its current position was too high. It took 2 of the sales team 10 mins to work out how to get the seat off, and a further 5 to work out how to lower it. Works out it only has 2 settings. High or low. Which is achieved by flipping a cheap bit of plastic one way or t'other to achieve your aim. Once it was finally sorted, I fired her up and set off. The 1st thing I noticed was just how hard the seat was. Can't imagine riding this heap......oops, getting ahead of myself there, this motorcycle for long periods of time without suffering serious butt ache. The riding position itself was...
