Unusual Passenger

Saw a lad this morning on the N11 – rides a GS1200 and has a small black dog in the rucksack with the heading poking out. He looked happy out, brightened up my commute.

Lights Lads, it's winter

Lights Lads, it’s winter

Lads, check yer rear lights, I drive the South Ring in Cork, early morning & late evening, both in darkness, and I see every day, and I mean everyday guys with no rear lights.


I appreciate bulbs can go anytime, but what I see is not that, just be careful, it’s hard enough to spot a bike in the dark that has working lights.


Why can’t manufacturers make bikes more visable from the rear, and worse, top boxes usually overhang rear lights.

Tyre advice

Tyre advice

Hi lads I bought a 2001 R1 lately and I want to buy new tyres. I will ride it in all weather types and all kinds of roads and we all know how bad the roads can get. Looking at sport touring tyres. Would like some feedback.

Question on passing the test 20 years and what you could ride


What were the requirements for riding a big bike back 20 years ago different to today.


How many riding test were they back in those days. Was it a single test on 125 or was their a second test on the big bikes after that.


I know a person who passed his 125cc A1 about 1998, rode for a few years on the 125 and now wants to get on the big bikes.


Was there a requirement to gain two years riding experience before you could ride the big bikes.


His Licence only shows A1 Marked on pink licence


Is he required to do a test now on the big bike?
