Idiot rear-ends unmarked police motorcyclist

Idiot rear-ends unmarked police motorcyclist

It’s never nice to see a car driver tailgating a motorcyclist, before rear ending them. But it’s slightly less unpleasant when the unhurt motorcyclist turns out to be an unmarked police rider. Yep, this SUV driver not only wasn’t paying attention to the fact the bike wasn’t moving. They also missed the utility belt etc […]

Stolen: 1987 Suzuki GSX-R250

Stolen_Suzuki_GSX-R_250_2

Having your bike stolen is a crappy way to start 2015. So hopefully by sharing the details of this 1987 Suzuki GSX-R 250 grey import GJ72A, we can all keep our eyes open and help re-unite someone with their motorcycle. After all, a grey import GSX-R250 isn’t the most common machine around. This one is […]

Our most popular posts of 2014

RG500-Engined-Special-2

It’s the time of year when many of us are hoping for a sunny Christmas Day to get out for a quick blast when the roads are empty. And it’s been a good year at Rescogs. Despite some disruption behind the scenes, we’ve reached more people than ever, doubling the figures from 2013. We’d still […]

The Brough Superior SS100 Titanium

Brough Superior SS100 Titanium

Recreating an icon is tricky. Get it right and you’re laughing all the way to the bank – like Fiat with the 500, BMW with the Mini and VW with the Beetle. Even London buses are going back to their Routemaster DNA. Obviously motorcycles have been getting in on the act for a while – […]

Kempton Autojumble – December 2014

Kempton-Autojumble-15

I do like a bit of diversity, and I don’t mean the London dance troupe. Too many motorcycle events have become soulless over the years and leave me cold. It means that in 2014 I’ve hardly been to any bike shows, so I decided to round out 2014 with a mooch around Kempton Autojumble. There […]

Motorcycle Live 2014

Motorcycle-Live-Crowds

Motorcycle Live 2014 has just ended, and Rescogs were some of the 117,000 people who made the annual pilgrimage to Birmingham and the delights of the NEC. Apparently that’s 10% more than last year, and the halls certainly felt more than busy enough. If we were being cynical, we might also suggest that the average […]

2015_Peugeot_Speedfight_4_Fluo_Apple_Green

Good news for teenage tearaways and careless commuters as a fourth generation Peugeot Speedfight will go on sale in Summer 2015.  It’ll be one of the new bikes on display from almost every bike brand at Motorcycle Live on November 22-30th at the Birmingham NEC. Whether or not you’re a fan of scooters, anything getting […]

London Motorcycle Museum trip with Rescogs

LondonMotorcycleMuseum8

Have you ever been to the London Motorcycle Museum? No, neither had I. Over the years I’ve been to plenty of motorcycle events, and venues, some leave a lasting impression on me others just fade in time to somewhere that I once went. I am not a massive fan of British motorcycles but I have […]

Cheap Thrills on the Suzuki VZ800 Marauder

Suzuki_Marauder_After_3

Check your local classified ads and you’ll see at least a half dozen or so entry-level motorcycles for sale. They all have a couple things in common; they’re overpriced and underpowered. Someone learning to ride went to the dealership and dropped a chunk to ride off into the sunset with their shiny new 250cc buzzing […]
