Lust I WAS sitting back the other weekend reminiscing of the road bikes I lusted after as a young bloke. The first two that came to mind were the Kawasaki GPz900R and the first model Suzuki GSX-R750. I had posters of each bike on my wall and would dream of one day riding them. I also loved the Katana 1100 in the burgundy/ silver which I owned not so long ago, so that’s that box ticked. A couple of years later the Suzuki GSX-R1100 Limited Edition in black with gold decals was released. I instantly fell in love with this bike and almost bought one just as the Katana 1100 was available to me. Roll on a few years and the Honda CBR900RR Fireblade caught my attention, so much so I’ve owned…

moto guzzi v85tt

IT’S HERE! YEP, the long awaited Moto Guzzi adventure bike has finally surfaced. Shown some time ago across many motorcycle shows around the world, Moto Guzzi has released the V85TT. Classically styled it’s a machine that grabs a lot of attention. We headed off to the Aussie launch in the Victorian High Country where it snowed – of course! The new Moto Guzzi V85TT is a kind of niche adventure motorcycle thanks to an 850cc engine and shaft drive. Guzzi aren’t billing the V85TT as a full-on adventure machine – more a touring bike that will handle some dirt roads, but I wonder if they’ve underestimated the capabilities of the bike as it will go places most other adventure bikes can. The only thing I can see that limits it’s ‘hardcore’…

“don’t mourn, organise”

THERE’S A TOTALLY unnecessary amount of mourning in the motorcycle community. Whenever I talk to other riders, someone is bound to pipe up with “I wish I could do the rides that you do…” Now mourning is cool; it’s a very human reaction to loss. But it is a bit silly when it’s about something that you can change. And just about everyone can change the way they spend their holidays. Think it’s too difficult? Too expensive? Too – well, just altogether too much? It isn’t. Keep in mind that quite a few of my trips are done exactly the same way that you can do them. I fly somewhere, choose a bike, join a group of other riders and we go out and explore the countryside for a couple of…

ural sahara

THERE HAVE BEEN some big breakthroughs in the history of engineering. For trains, taking the leap from coal-powered steam to electrical power was a monumental achievement. Safety and performance took a huge step forward in 1953 when Cessna bolted an extra engine to its commuter plane and recently, we also rejoiced when Ducati pushed into production a sophisticated V4 powerplant - giving us a new level of pleasure. Amen, hallelujah and a slow goodbye to the L twin. By contrast, in a not so earthshattering move, Ural has completely updated the 749cc engine with some rather major changes. The difference is outstanding. Yes, you still will be riding something that looks and to a certain degree feels antiquated in a sitting- on-Grandpa’sknee kind of way. For me, the totally optioned-up Sahara…
