March 28th, 2007 Jesper Bram 4 Comments »

Regular Helmet Hair reader, David, from Hamburg, sent me this great story on how he had a blast riding a Yamaha XT660R around Mallorca for a weekend. Last weekend I was in Mallorca as the person I was visiting had to work I decided to rent a bike. The shop, I think called Reus had […] Continue reading

Worlds Fastest Indian, DVD Review

November 16th, 2006 Jesper Bram 2 Comments »

If you are a motorcycle enthusiast and have not yet seen this movie, you must. The Worlds Fastest Indian is about the life story of New Zealander Burt Munro, who spent years building a 1920 Indian motorcycle; a bike which helped him set the land-speed world record at Utah’s Bonneville Salt Flats in 1967. I […] Continue reading

I bought the Honda from new back in August 2003 and so far I’ve done more than 28.000 km (17.500 miles) on the motorcycle. It’s a very versatile machine good for both touring two-up full packed, fun with the lads on the back roads, and the occasional track-day. Not to mention reliable; never had any […] Continue reading

Kawasaki ER6n review

Kawasaki has taken quite a while replacing their old trusty workhorse and beginners bike the ER5. So I expected them to come up with something that could maybe knock Yamaha’s FZ6 off its pedestal. In terms of modern design and technique it’s a big leap ahead from the ER5, but is it a good bike? […] Continue reading

I’ve had my eyes on the Multistrada for a while. I’m looking for the right replacement to my Honda 919, and it will probably be something in the sport touring category. My girlfriend and I are crazy about the camping-touring vacation form. So I’m going for a bit more wind protection and touring capabilities. But […] Continue reading

Trying out the Yamaha MT-03

May 5th, 2006 Jesper Bram 85 Comments »

I had the chance, a few weeks ago, to take a Yamaha MT-03 for a quick spin. As far as I know Yamaha has used the engine from the XT 660 and put it in a more modern sci-fi-like chassis. If you’ve read my opinion on the XT 660, you will now that I was […] Continue reading

DVD Review, Choppertown – The Sinners.

November 20th, 2005 Jesper Bram 10 Comments »

When I was a kid we would always hang out at a mate’s garage, messing with mopeds and strapping lawnmower engines to anything from roller-skates to soapbox-cars. If you, like me, can recall that time with a happy smirk, this DVD is for you. Choppertown – The Sinners, is a documentary on a bunch of […] Continue reading
