  1. A Unique Insight into Christophe Pourcel

    Certainly one of the most controlled racers around today and a style that has lent itself perfectly to Supercross in the states. It'll be interesting to see if he appears there for Anaheim 1 this year.

    I've never been a huge fan of the Pourcel brothers....don't get me wrong, I don't dislike them, but I've never really felt that they show much personality.

    I might have been wrong though. It looks like Pourcel is just quite introvert and a real 'thinking' racer.

  3. VRT explained - How to register a motorcycle in Ireland.

    Registering a Motorcycle in Ireland

    So, I picked up a 2007 Fireblade for the Summer and it had a Northern Irish registration. Then I thought to myself.....ermmm, how do I register a motorcycle in Ireland again? had been so long since I hade done it.

    I've registered literally hundreds of motorcycles in the past (a murky past in importing containers from Tokyo!) but the setup has changed recently.

    So what's different about the new Vehicle Registration setup in Ireland?

    Well, firstly the old VRO (Vehicle Registration Offices) offices aren't what they used to be. In the past they were the hangout spot for motor trade dealers, gossiping outside, smoking 'JPs' and also for confused foreigners dealing with equally confused 'state' registration officers.
