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 […]

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.

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 […]

We need your votes in the UK Blog Awards

Blogging often feels like a massive uphill struggle. Very few people are lucky enough to become rich or even make a living. It’s something we do because of our passion for the subject, and because it’s an amazing way to share bikes, articles and opinions that might never have been seen anywhere else. That’s why […]

2015 Yamaha MT-07 Moto Cage is released

The 2015 Yamaha MT-07 Moto Cage

The 2015 Yamaha MT-07 Moto Cage is being promoted as a new motorcycle concept by Yamaha, and given the ‘adventure’ makeovers given to other new bikes, who are we to argue? Except this time the target market isn’t aspiring Dakar racers – instead the Japanese firm has decided to offer something to the young, hip, […]

1972 Yamaha YDS7 250 for sale

1972 Yamaha YDS7

Fancy a classic 1970s two-stroke? We last mentioned ‘friend of Rescogs’ John Wyszomierski when he was reviving a Ducati Monster on a budget in his kitchen. That bike went to a good home, and he’s now looking for a buyer for his 1972 Yamaha YDS7 250 to allow him to fund a new purchase. The […]

The 2015 Moto Guzzi V7 II unveiled

MotoGuzzi_V7II_Stone_2015_F3Q

The 2015 Moto Guzzi V7 II adds two-channel ABS and traction control to the existing V7. The engine has been lowered 10mm and tilted forwards by four degrees, which means more leg room and allows the seat height to also be dropped. As a result, the rider foot pegs are 25mm lower as well. The […]
