Saietta and British Weather

Having prepared for a nice trip to Devon this weekend, I was disappointed to learn that there are weather warnings out for both days! Oh British weather, why do you torment me so? On a lighter note, I am hoping to arrange a trip to the Isle of Man later in the year possibly in time for the Classic TT, let’s hope the weather holds out then. In oth

Commuting in London Additional

Following up on my post regarding next year's plan to blog about the high and low points of my daily commute by motorcycle, I have just picked up my new workhorse - a new Suzuki GSX650F. Having read numerous reviews, this bike has received nothing but praise from most quarters and should prove a more suitable commuter than my much-loved GSXR750...

Scooters and GS1200s

A slightly contentious note today, following a couple of days of increased traffics due to strike action on the underground… I think scooters are a fantastic way for people to get around in the city and a brilliant way for young riders to get used to life on two wheels, but I have a problem with the way many scooter riders take huge risks and bla

Need to carry a small child on your scooter?

This poster is advertising one of the most unbelievable motorcycle accessories I've encountered, a child seat which is essentially a high-chair that sits in the foot well of a scooter and raises the child to lap height. It is a thing of sheer brilliance and lunacy in equal measures!

Hanoi, home of the motorcycle

Taxi drivers are rip-off merchants wherever you go, London included, but after 15 hours travelling you just don't care. I've seen about 400 scooters but only 6 motorcycles, although one of those was a lovely Ducati Monster. A lot of these vehicles were happily driving on the wrong side of the road against oncoming traffic. On said scooters the aver
