Will you carry on biking into the colder months?

  • By cannonball

The days are noticeably shorter now, and the temperature seems to be dropping day-by-day. There’s no getting away from the fact that summer is over.

Will you be tucking your bike away for the winter, away from all the horrible weather? Or will you soldier on through the worst winter can throw at us?

It’s a fun event with a serious objective. The DGR seeks to bring people together to raise awareness and funding for research into prostate cancer and the Mouvember Foundation, which is committed to helping men live healthier, happier lives.

AI, a new Yamaha R6 and pizza mischief: PH2 | PistonHeads

  • By cannonball

It’s certainly been a strange old week for two-wheeled news, so PH2 will kick off with one of the more interesting stories. Kawasaki has confirmed that it is moving forward with plans to introduce what it calls ICT (Information and Communication Technology) including Artificial Intelligence (AI) into its future bikes. Slightly worryingly, according to Kawasaki the technology is aimed to pick up on the rider’s intent and emotional state to allow the bike and rider to share an understanding of purpose. Kawasaki then goes on to elaborate that the system will “be able to offer the rider pertinent hints for enhanced riding enjoyment or relay safety-related or reassuring advice as the situation dictates”. Really? The whole point of riding a bike is that you don’t have someone nagging in your ear! It will be interesting to see how this technology evolves beyond relaying simple GPS directions.

Anatomy of the Triumph Infor Rocket Streamliner

  • By cannonball

Guy Martin’s motorcycle land speed record didn’t exactly go to plan, but both the man himself and Triumph have vowed to return and give it another crack as soon as they can.

But what exactly makes up a twin-engine streamliner motorcycle underneath the sleek bodywork? As you’d expect, there’s a lot gong on you don’t see, who we’ve got the run down on exactly what makes the Triumph Info Rocket Streamliner tick.

Video: Officially the world’s fastest monowheel motorcycle

  • By cannonball

Forget Land Speed record attempts at Bonneville Salt Flats - damn you weather conditions – there’s a new vehicle on the scene which has earned a coveted space in the 2017 Guinness World Records book.

It’s the fastest monowheel motorcycle.

The UK Monowheel Team and Yorkshireman Kevin Scott set the new record of 61.18mph, beating Kerry McLean who set the previous fastest record of 57mph at Irwindale Speedway, California, in 2001.

Guy Martin’s next record attempt in a human-powered airship

  • By cannonball

Following on from the Triumph Infor Streamliner record attempt, the journey of Speed with Guy Martin continues as the TT Racer sets out to become the first person to cross the English Channel in a human-powered airship.

Sitting on a ‘flying bicycle’ – suspended beneath a helium-filled balloon the size of a bus –  Guy will use every pedal stroke to spin two propellers for this record attempt.
