Until then…

Two and a half years ago, Bikerglory predicted the return of forced induction on production motorcycles. It was a no brainer: better fuel economy, less weight, more power – meaning a 500cc machine (for example) could do everything a litre bike can do – but better. We got the supercharger bit right. But we got the capacity wrong……

Sometime Brit bike journo (TWO, MCN etc) has been taken hostage by Islamic State.

Sonic worked in the industry in it the last glory days of print – before it all got so serious and predictable. He then grew up and became a respected war correspondent.  At times like this all of us will be united our hopes for his release, along with the others in the same predicament.  Our thoughts are with him and his fellow hostages.

The weekend of the 15th / 16th of March brought warm sunshine and clear skies to large parts of the UK. Consequently plenty of bikes appeared making their seasonal debut – and with sad inevitability accidents and fatalities involving motorcycles skyrocketed, a fair proportion involving no other vehicle.

NORTON: the inside story….

Published by Nick on October 10th, 2012 - in NEWS

THIS POST served as a filler between the original Norton Saga feature and the Stewart Garner interview. New readers with an interest in the subject are best advised to head to those destinations: we’re not deleting this one as comments were received and posted, but it has been long since superceded.



For reasons explained below – see update  – we’ve had to put back The Stewart Garner Interview.  This will be the real deal:  punches will not be pulled by either side. Inevitably, some will see the proposed interview as a cop out on our part, when in fact what we’re doing is fulfilling the original intention of balancing input by giving Norton a platform on which to respond.

UPDATE 21/02/13

Apologies for the ongoing delay. I can only say that there are excellent reasons for holding off on any Norton related material at the moment – new material has recently been made available to BG which we are in the process of evaluating, and secondly Norton have recently been cited in evidence in open court as part of an ongoing criminal trial. These complex proceedings also need to be contextualised, and for that we must await a verdict.

Under those circumstances there is no sensible option but to hold fire. This does not mean that the story has been spiked: it simply means that we’re trying to do the job properly. Thanks for your patience.

SHOWTIME: a reality check…

This ravishing combi of old skool aircooled and glorious design was the single item we most wanted to ride away on from this years shows… bar none.  Ditch the mirrors and chuck on a Rizoma – sorted.  There were plenty of other notable contenders, but….

…. ‘Let’s not suck each others dicks just yet’, as Mr.Wolf eloquently put it…. (more…)
