TVS One Make Championship 2016: Media Race

The last thing you want to hear when you are trying to psych yourself to race is that you have high blood pressure. And in the kind track doctor’s words, this might be a reflection of my age (40 is knocking on my door, after all), and the fact that exercise has never been on my agenda. If that’s not all, the track doctor also says I need to cut down on sweets. But, I love sweets. And I hate exercise. And I have no control over my age. This isn’t going well.

Ducati Multistrada 1200S – coast to coast ride on a 160bhp sofa

Long rides aren’t new to me. Not too long ago, I used to spend a considerable amount of time in the saddle.

Lookin' for adventure, and whatever comes our way”

I am screaming the lyrics inside my helmet, the rush getting better of my senses. Motorcycles and music are an exhilarating combination. I am riding on the beach in Mandvi with the never-ending horizon on one side and a row of windmills on the other, and I need not bother about someone overhearing my hoarse scream.The fiery red orb had set moments ago,leaving the sky aglow with swirls of red, orange and pink and the sounds of waves crashing against each other are providing the background score.

Top 10 longest-range bikes

There’s one thing that you can’t take away from the Indian two-wheeler buyers – their need of maximum fuel efficiency or ‘mileage’, in their words. It’s always been the case of ‘the more the merrier’. But buyers aren’t always sure about the tank capacity of the bikes, which is as important as the fuel efficiency. These two aspects decide how far the rider can go before he needs another tank-up.

Vista Car Care makes many different products that take care of the exterior and interior of cars. What is this doing on a motorcycle site, you ask?

Product Review: TCX S-Speed Boot Review – 3-month update

I like the TCX S-Speed boots. I said as much in the inaugural report we did over three months ago. I like the way these look, and feel expensive to the touch. There’s decent venting, plus, there’s good protection with CE certification and TCX’s own patented TCS tech. Now, I have used them on a racetrack and for daily commute over the last three months and this is what I took home...

Mojo Desert Trail Part 1: Rajasthan diaries

It was a little after 8pm and the six of us were lost. Having spent over 12 hours on the road, we should have reached the desert camp by now. But the settlement was nowhere in sight, and neither were the other motorcycles from the convoy. We stopped to check our phones...
