What’s wrong with these fools ARE WE AS A NATION getting dumber? I think we could be judging by the stupidity I witnessed on a recent trip north out of Sydney. More and more drivers (and some riders) are looking at the edge of their bonnet (front tyre for the riders) and not taking in what’s happening around them – whether that’s in front, to the side or especially behind them. People don’t give a stuff what the road rules are and it is no wonder so many accidents happen on the major roads out of our cities – no doubt out of frustration from other road users. In particular I’m talking about speed limits and the Keep Left Unless Overtaking rules. I’m all for going fast (most of the time) but…

bmw r 1250 gs rallye

THE KING OF adventure land, the BMW R 1200 GS, has been given an update recently with a displacement increase, meaning more power and torque, and some fancy tech inside the engine called Shift Cam Technology. I rode the new R 1250 GS Rallye version (similar to the previous Rallye X) at the recent BMW GS Safari – the perfect platform to test all the new features. The new 1254cc engine combines the power and response of a high-performance motor with aggressive high-lift cams, with the docility, economy and emissions of an engine which has much softer cam profiles. How? By using two sets of cam lobes on the inlet camshafts. The idea of employing two distinct cam lobe profiles in one engine isn’t new. Honda’s VTEC system – the one it…

indian ftr 1200s

INDIAN’S flat-track-inspired FTR1200 has been the most eagerly anticipated motorcycle since the time of Christ – which is unapologetic hyperbole, but it’s kinda true. Here was an entirely new type of bike from a factory that made its very recent bones building traditional cruisers for a very traditional market. The FTR is such a departure from what you’ve come to expect from Indian, its advent caused social media to stop celebrating the consusmption of dishwashing liquid, and to start high-fiving itself in anticipation of the FTR’s arrival. Which was by no means certain. But the wheels were certainly in motion a few years back. In the background, Indian was busily beating Harley-Davidson to death on the flat-track circuits of America with its potent 750cc dirt-weapon. But since this part of the world doesn’t follow the…
