Regardless of where you are in the world, winter can take its toll on your bike gear. Whether you have been battling the elements every day or riding as little as you can, March is a great time to think about a motorcycle clothing spring clean.

Even if you haven't ridden your bike since the summer drew to an end, There is a good chance your clothing might have a spot of mould or damp if it has been stored away. But how do you k...

The motorcycle racing season is waking up. With riders heading out for pre-season testing and the first BSB race scheduled for 31st March, it won't be long before we are feeling inspired and heading out on the first track day of the year.

Running up and running into issues with the £360 Burgman 

With bike out of the van and in the garage, getting the Burgman running wasn’t much of an issue; we charged the battery and put some fresh fuel in. Fired up straight away, but...
 

That exhaust is blowing so bad you’d think there wasn’t one on there. The silencer looks almost new but the header pipe is a piece of flexipipe. We removed it all to see about two inches of the...

At The Motorcycle Agency we needed some wheels for winter. The sort of thing for darting into town or leaving at train stations and airports that isn’t lavished with much love or attention.  

The result of an office debate brought the conclusion that a maxi scooter ‘could’ be the answer. A Yamaha T-Max is arguably King of this segment but has high used values to go with them. Suzuki’s Burgman has been around for ages in a varie...

Since 1992 when Honda launched the RR-N Fireblade the 

model continues to impress. 

It's now 25 years since that fat faced 16 inch front wheel model rolled out, time though hasn't ever stood still back at Honda. This year we're getting the same old claims from those lucky enough to get a golden ticket from Honda to go and ride the all new model. 

Fact is there's never been a blunt Blade, even the duller models like the RR-W and 9...
