Member spotlight // BAT

I've been riding since my early twenties and have owned a variety of bikes over the years. The first a Yamaha FZR 250, then a Suzuki SV650, and two Triumph's...My first Ducati purchase was in 2019. A grey Supersport S. Thinking of the 'trade price' I tried not to ride it too much. After clocking up 10k over summer, it was traded for the Diavel I had my eye on, and still hold close to my heart. Late last year the Triumph Street triple was traded for another Supersport, this one the 2021 model.Sin...

On a hired Multistrada V4S we boarded Brittany Ferry with three other bikes belonging to British friends.There were loads of bikes on the ferry as Spain is a very popular destinati...

WSBK experience with Karl & Sam

With an urge to get on a plane and go somewhere and WSBK coming to Phillip Island the timing was perfect.As a treat we purchased a VIP package.VIP meant a seat in the VIP lounge above pit lane. Food, drinks, access to riders, viewing from pit lane roof and pit walks each day.The Friday was a beautiful hot Phillip Island day, giving us Wellingtonians a slight Ducati red sun burn. Saturday and Sunday were literally 4 seasons in one day, a couple of times over. The VIP lounge was a great spot ...
