Our top 10 articles of 2013

It’s been an interesting year for Rescogs, with some ups, some downs, and some great contributions from new contributors including Feef and Gareth. We’ve managed to reach tens of thousands of people over the course of the year, and interestingly three quarters of you have come back more than once, so we must be doing […]

Rescogs Road Runt Progress Update

RescogsRuntYamahaFZR4001WG_Progress

Did we bite off more than we can chew with a basket case Yamaha FZR400 obtained from eBay for less than £100? Probably, is the obvious answer, but the Road Runt project is all about the challenge. And after the initial enthusiasm and excitement has worn off, we’re now able to see the actual size […]

The Rescogs Project Bike: Introducing the new Runt…

RescogsRuntYamahaFZR400-1.1

We’ve been talking about investing in a Rescogs project bike for a while, and now we’ve started for a total investment of £62. You might we wouldn’t get much for that, but you’d be wrong. OK, so it isn’t a runner, and we can’t ride it, and it’s not even complete, but it’s a decent […]

What to do with the Rescogs Mothership?

Honda-CBR1000FP

This Honda CBR1000FP was once my everyday ride. Bought for just £500 back in 2008, complete with almost 12 months MOT and an almost-new exhaust system, the big old CBR has done me proud. The true mileage is a mystery, as the MOT paperwork trail stopped at 97,000 miles, and the car-inspired dash admitting to […]

Help pick the first Rescogs Project Bike

Honda-VF750F

So, the kids are back at school, the sun tans faded and days are getting shorter, that means only one thing, it’s time for the ResCogs community to start looking for a winter project? The biggest problem with the idea is what shall we get? I’m thinking something cheap that needs kicking straight, maybe something […]

Rescogs reputation

Rescogs reputation

In motorcycling, like anything else, the odd mistake is inevitable. You generally hope they’ll be private, painless and won’t involve any bike damage, like the occasional sidestand-related mishap. Sometimes they’re just plain embarrassing, like forgetting you’ve parked on a hill outside a crowded Welsh pub and trying to put your foot down on the wrong […]

Rescogs quoted in Avon Tyres Storm 3D X-M Press Release

AvonTyres

It appears someone at Avon Tyres might be a fan of Rescogs.com. You might have seen the great report and video from the Castle Combe launch of the Avon Storm 3D X-M tyres by Richard Ashcroft, but Richard’s reaction has also been quoted in Avon’s official press release about the day. Not only is it […]

Eurotrash! New DVLA red tape catches our newest recruit out. Sean Allen explains

Sean Allen Frame

Does April 15th mean anything to you? Someone’s birthday, perhaps even an anniversary?  Not for me, April 15th was the date the rules changed at the DVLA and HMRC making it even harder to register a frame or bike bought in from the European Union. The date was the 22nd and I’ve just stormed out […]

Share your pics with ResCogs on Flickr

In addition to our Facebook and Twitter profiles, we’ve now also got a ResCogs Flickr Group for sharing any bike pictures you might have uploaded. So if you’ve got any motorcycling related pics and fancy sharing somewhere, it’s a good place to do it, and we’ll try to feature as many as possible on the […]

Welcome to ResCogs

Hello, and welcome to ResCogs.com, or Reservoir Cogs if you want to be more formal about it. And the reason we’ve doing this is because, let’s face it, motorcycles are ferkin’ awesome. Whether you’d got a ratty CG125 or the latest R1, there’s nothing like riding a motorcycle to feel alive. And in general, other […]
