Kenny on the killer

Just love the sound of the Yamaha TZ750 flat tracker, a bike so powerful it was later banned by the AMA. In this clip Kenny Roberts rides the dirt oval at Indy some 30 years on, no warm up or practice, nothing !!  90mph, no front brake, tip it in and nail that throttle. Check […]

The Joe Bar One race series in France is brilliant! A typical Joe Bar race bike makes a Moto GP 800 look like an over regulated light weight. Bikes can have any mods as long as they are safe! Meaning turbo’s, big bore 4 strokes, nutter tuned 2 strokes!  The engine must not be obscured […]

Spring has officially arrived at Print Monkey. Waking up to beautiful crisp, frosty, blue skied morning on Tuesday, the car keys stayed firmly in the cupboard, out rolled the mountain bikes and off we went to get muddy on the way to Monkey HQ! After going over the dirt jumps,  Andy even stopped to buy daffodils […]

So true…..even today

As you know we went along to the touring GF Smith exhibition at De Montfort University this week. It was a fantastic opportunity to see how a company marketed itself throughout the decades and I was surprised to see that their sample books were just as fantastic in the early 1900’s as they are today!
