Motorbike Articles

Riding my Suzuki GSX-1250FA sports/tourer or my Triumph Speed Triple RS motorcycle brings a great sense of freedom and danger. The exhilaration you get, heightens your senses and brings with it an awareness that you are more alive!

This year, 2024, I have added a Honda NX500 Adventure Crossover motorcycle to my collection. I plan to use it on the hills and trails of the Lothian and Borders.

I tend to write down everything I read about motorbikes (well mostly) and post it on my web and in my Motorbike Blog. It keeps the 'old' brain ticking over! These are articles about my learning to ride a motor bike, passing my tests and my ongoing experiences and aspirations as a biker.

When I passed my motorcycle test in 2014 at the age of 65 Years, I treated myself to a brand new Suzuki GSX-1250FA Motorcycle and rode it out of Saltire Motorcycles in Edinburgh, Scotland - the company who trained me.

One requires a new challenge; a brand new motorcyle. In 2018, I visited the Edinburgh Triumph Dealership and took out the Triumph Street Triple RS and the Triumph Speed Triple RS motorcycles for test rides.

I was fed up during the winter period and with those rain soaked days during the summer in Scotland when my sports bikes were off the road. I also had a hankering to head over the B roads, rough trails, and the green lanes of the Lothian and Borders in Scotland. I figured that a midrange adventure bike would provide the solution. In 2023, I visited the Edinburgh Honda Dealership and after test riding a Honda CB500X, I placed an order for the 2024 replacement, the new Honda NX500 Motorcycle.
