For two wheel petrol heads!
Practical Sportsbikes August 2017£4.10
For every project or restoration that makes it off the work bench, then out of the MoT station to start its new life, there are many more that get left at the back of the shed, and forgotten about.
We’ve all been there. Even PS’s prolific project bike builder Alan Seeley. Our Technical Ed’s once brimming enthusiasm for his Ducati ST4-powered 888 replica began to dry up for his homemade Italian twin before he could realise its potential.
Fellow PS contributor Rupert Paul couldn’t bear to see Alan’s hard work go to waste so he’s unearthed the Duke from the back of the shed, dusted it down, and has sworn to finish what Al started. See if he’s bitten off more than he, and indeed Alan, can chew from page 89.
Two men who bit chunks out their competition before coming back for more legendary tuner Pops Yoshimura and his two-time AMA title winning rider Wes Cooley. Pops and Wes showed their sheer class in the late ’70s and early ’80s American rave scene by beating factory backed Kawasaki and Honda teams, and in the process making Suzuki and its GS1000 superbike into racing Legends. Wes tells PS his story from page 48. And what a story it is.

Performance Bikes – August 2017£4.30
WITHOUT ANY HINT of exaggeration, I can guarantee you’ve never read a road test like our TT special Rutter Test. We’ve only just got over the fact we pulled it off ourselves: the two current best production sportsbikes, head to head on a closed TT course, ridden by a race winner, fully datalogged. Our regular Rutter Test at Donington already sets the sort of objective testing standard most magazines just can’t match: this time, we’ve raised the bar so high even we’ll struggle to hit the same peak again…
The TT is impressive anyway, but hours poring over the data gathered over a single lap on two ordinary road bikes (plus Michael’s Superstock BMW, as a race bike reference point) have revealed the magic of a proper fast lap in incredible detail. we didn’t know quite what to expect in terms of lap speeds and the ability of the bikes to handle severe punishment. It had Johnny and I simultaneously speculating/crapping ourselves while Rutter was out for each lap. We knew the bikes were good – but even the best race bikes can fail. The only concession we made to the effort was turning off the BMW’s heated grips…
There’s loads of other great stuff in the mag as normal, but I urge you: turn to p30 first, and tape your jaw shut to preventative a repetitive strain injury

Classic Bike – July 2017 Issue£4.20
Classic bikes need a fettle every now and again, so we felt it was time to give the mag one, too. We’ve tweaked the front end to cover a wider range of bikes, people and events. We’ve also given more prominence to Rick’s much-loved workshop section – and kept the engine strip and specialist favourites.
Features-wise, we wanted to keep the same wide variety, so we’ve got three-bike Suzuki triple comparison plus a wild girder-forked Gold Star. The classic world is full of characters, and Glen English stands out not just as one of the top classic racers in the world but also one of the most talented model makers in the sculptors of two-wheeled machines.
British bike shops with real history are relatively plentiful in the UK…but in Greece? We found a BSA dealership in Athens that is celebrating its 100th anniversary. and we’ve got events, with comprehensive coverage of the Donington Endurance and the Quail Gathering, which highlight the diversity of the classic world we love so much.
Enjoy the read.
