  1. Nurburgring with a gyro-camera

    This is the new gyro-camera that you've seen in MoroGP recently. Looks like the camera is definitely in the riders way but the footage is amazing.

    The rider here is Bridgestone tyre tester Tim Röthig doing a good job at showing how the Nurburgring should be rode - flat out!

  2. The Wicklow Gap Motorcycle Video with GoPro Helmet Camera Footage

    The Wicklow Gap Motorcycle Video

    This is a great motorcycle spin from Hollyhead to Laragh in Wicklow.

    • Take the N81 out of Dubin (also a good road for a spin).

      The road is generally in adverage to good condition but the layout is excellent - windy mountain roads!
    • Straight through Blessington.
    • At Hollywood turn left at an Emo garage.
    • Enjoy the next 25kms of the Wicklow Gap to Laragh.


    In Laragh there's a few cafes and pubs which are all biker friendly. It's a really popular spot year round as most roads in and out of it are fairly enjoyable.

  3. How to check the age of your bike - Motorcycle VIN Number.

    How to year check a motorcycle frame or Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)?

    I get SO many calls from customers wondering what year their motocross bike was made in that I felt it deserved a blog post.

    Unfortunately there are a lot of 'chancers' out there selling their bikes to unsuspecting people as much newer than they actually are. I feel terrible for people as I sometimes deliver the news that the CRF which they believed was an 08 is actually an 04, or sometimes worse.

    Where is my frame number or Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) located on my motorcycle?

    On every bike I've ever come across the frame number is located to the right hand side of the headstock tube. This is the tube of steel at the front of any motorcycle where the fork clamps bolts through. The frame number/VIN is ALWAYS stamped deep into the frame.

  5. What 125 Motocross Bike To Buy?

    So You Want To Buy A 125 Motocross Bike?

    So you're in the market or a used 125 motocross bike - what should I buy?

    Well the truth is, these days, there's not really a bad one just some are slightly better in areas. Just incase you're unaware...and I won't repeat this...STAY AWAY FROM THE CHINESE BRANDS.

    Now that we have that out of the way, what you want to look at is Suzuki, Yamaha, Kawasaki, Honda, KTM and maybe, and a big MAYBE, TM.

    So why would you want to buy a 125 motocross bike? For LOADS of reason:

    • they're light.
    • they're easy to start.
    • they're cheap to buy (although actually appreciating due to scarcity).
    • they develop great riding style - you always know when someone has served their time on a 125.
    • they're an absolute hoot to ride whether you're a beginner or a seasoned pro.
    • they're relatively cheap to maintain.
    • they come with a certain

  7. Motocross Clearance Stock - Parts and Clothing Stocklist

    Motocross Clearance Stock

    Ok, firstly let me explain how this list ever came about: we had a power cut recently and had literally NOTHING to do (try running an online business without electricity:) we decided to do a spring clean and found LOADS of stuff that we never even knew we had.

    All of this stock is perfect, all new, some of it we have from customer orders uncollected, some old stock, wrong parts, whatever, either way it's no use to me so I'm clearing it all below cost price - get it while you can.

    Oh, another thing, as we can't replace

  8. Micks Videos from the 'European World Bike Tour'

    The three dirtiest minded feckers EVER!

    So, firstly le me give some explanation (and disclamers!), none of the three madmen in these videos work for us, I don't condone their behavior, please do not try to copy any of the stunts shown (especially the naked runs:).

    Mick is the man whom created the very first and also the second version. He's a terrible MX rider whom buys new bikes instead of fixing (punctures) on his old ones. He's currently working on another cool project that you can find more about here. Aido (Aidan Dunne) is an old school motocrosser who cannot be trusted on the track......or most other places infact. He's a proud YZ250 two smoke addict whom once considered upgrading to the modern four bangers but luckily decided to hold out. Unfortunately we rarely see him these days, so much so that I might blank him on the street:) I've never met Aidos' brother but some day ......if

  9. Suzuki RMZ450 for sale in Ireland

    2009 RMZ450 For Sale

    I bought this bike form a good customer who was just getting no use from it and wanted it out of his garage - it was sitting there doing nothing for over 6 months!

    RMZ450 2009 left hand side

    It's an 09 model (confirmed with Suzuki) RMZ450 injection. It doesn't have an hour meter but the casing would indicate extremely low hours.....if I had to guess 10-15 MAX.

    When I got it the exhaust and back mudguard was damaged - I'm guessing a one wheeled mis-adventure. I've fitted a brand new FMF Powercore exhaust and have a new rear fender to go on. The only single fault I can spot
