Sadly, the developers of Drupal have decided that Drupal 6 is now at the end of its life and will not be supported beyond the end of this year, which means no more security updates so the hackers and spammers will find cracks and start to destroy our website again. There was no easy upgrade path to Drupal 7 or 8, so we’ve opted to migrate the site to Wordpress.
Last year, David Beckham and a bunch of his pals went on a bike trip into the Amazon rainforest.
They went so deep they not only came across locals who didn’t know he was; they met some who didn’t appear to know what a football was!
Well, impressed by the TV documentary and the ruggedness of the bikes they rode, Motolegends, the apparel retailer, decided to build themselves a replica.
And then they had a clever idea; give it away instead!
It’s that time again and the Christmas Toy Run is happening right round Australia. Get involved and show your support for the underprivileged kids.
If you’re riding in Victoria, Australia, you need to know that your helmet could get you into serious trouble with the law right now. Victoria Police are actively targeting riders with tinted helmet visors and the charge they’re putting forward is “riding without a helmet” which carries an on-the-spot fine of $295 and loss of three demerit points.
If, like me, you own a sports bike or a sports tourer, at some point you’re going to start thinking about how to get more out of your finely tuned performance bike. I find the punch when I open the throttle very addictive and although mine had plenty of it, I’m always interested in getting a bit more while not over-taxing my engine.
You have no idea what to buy your motorcycle beau for their birthday. If you can’t buy a new bike for your buff, think more on the line of motorcycle accessories.
Over the past five years or so, I’ve been getting over to Thailand as often as I can. And when I’m there, you’ll almost always find me riding something or other (and I don’t mean Thai girls either, you dirty-minded buggers). For those of you who read this earlier, my apologies that it was cut off after the first paragraph. Big problems with the content editor!!

In 1991, the world said goodbye to man who was instrumental in making the motorcycle a ubiquitous vehicle available to the common man. Soichiro Honda did for motorbikes what Henry Ford did for cars. He brought them down to a price we could all afford and put the dream within the reach of the masses.
I must admit to being a bit partial to Mr Honda, even though I ride a Yamaha. My first motorbike was a Honda CB350 twin and it was a great bike, even if I did destroy it.
In this video from Honda, we get to pay tribute to what Soichiro Honda did for the world of motorcycling.
