    Call me old-fashioned, but I reckon dirt bikes have lost the plot in the styling stakes: give me an Elsinore over a CRF any day. And we could devote acres of pixels to the beautiful machines coming out of Spain in the 60s and 70s.… Read more »

    Most bikes that look outlandish are terrible to ride. But this one is almost certainly the opposite. It’s called SuperSpinne (‘Spinne’ being German for spider) and it’s based on the KTM Super Duke R. According to the builder, Mark Dugally, the bike is ‘a pissed… Read more »
