Watch Four-Time World Superbike Champ Carl Fogarty Slide A Triumph Scrambler Around A Wet Speedway Track

  • By cannonball

Carl Fogarty is the most successful World Superbike racer in the series’ history. He racked up 59 race wins, 109 podiums, and four Superbike championships—the bulk of his success coming from his time with Ducati. The thing is, Foggy has something of a flat-track addiction, and his weapon of choice is now a Triumph.

Dakar 2018 Day 11 Results

  • By cannonball

The Dakar Rally may be most famous for the drama that often plays out in the last half of this, the world’s most famous off-road race, and the 10th stage may just have provided that in a massive dose.

After the cancellation of yesterday’s stage 9 due to heavy rains making the original bivouac a muddy quagmire impossible to work in, the field prepared for stage 10 with renewed enthusiasm, but none could foresee just how much things would change. It began in Salta, Argentina, with a 242-kilometer timed special stage followed by a 320-kilometer liaison or transfer section, a second 129-kilometer special (times of the two specials combined for a single total) before a final 103-kilometer liaison ending in Belén. Much of the going saw the return of sandy or rocky terrain as well as southern hemisphere summer, with temperatures well over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. And while the heat somewhat factored into the results, it was tricky navigation that proved to be the undoing of many of the favorites.

Spy shots! KTM’s new 690 Enduro and Supermoto

  • By cannonball

For those of us who have a passion for big singles, 2017 was a sad year as KTM dropped both the 690 Enduro R and the 690 SMC R from their range in Europe. There were rumours that it was to avoid direct competition with sister-brand Husqvarna’s similar 701 Enduro and 701 Supermoto, but in reality it was just a case of the 690s falling foul of the Euro4 regulations. Now MCN has seen spy shots that show they’re back and they’re better than ever.

MotoGP: Ducati unveil new-look 2018 machine

  • By cannonball

Ducati have pulled the covers off a new-look 2018 MotoGP machine at the Italian manufacturer’s headquarters in Bologna, with Andrea Dovizioso and Jorge Lorenzo unveiling a new colour scheme that sees the traditional red and while colours replaced with a new red and grey scheme for the coming year.

Showing off the bike for the first time in front of sponsors and media in the Borgo Panigale factory, the modifications to the new bike, while subtle, make the already aggressive-looking Demosedici GP machine look even angrier.

When Age And Downsizing Your Motorcycle Opens Up New Opportunities

  • By cannonball

his is a tale of victory, not defeat; but it didn’t start that way. In fact, this story begins with a sobering topic most motorcyclists will confront but few will speak of.

Try as we might, no matter how hard we attempt to halt his progress, there’s no avoiding Father Time. Months turn to years, and almost suddenly our youthful minds share space with reflexes founded on training rather than lightning-fast synapses. The strength we once took for granted has now taken a back seat to aches and pains.

This isn’t to say that passion for two wheels wanes with age, but the realities of age can only be ignored for so long, eventually forcing even the steadiest of hands to compromise. What was once the perfect bike is now a bit too heavy, a tad too tall, and a little too extreme… Now what?
