Me on my Suzuki Bandit 600 near Killarney.

Four wheels move the body but two wheels moves the soul so the old adage says and in my two years of riding, in which I've clocked up about 20,000 miles so far, I've found this to be absolutely true. Does the rain bother you? No. What about the danger? Danger is inherent in all aspects of life, it depends on where you want to draw the line. This is the exact point, it is up to you, you as an individual and when on a motorbike every decision is one made by you. The thrill of control and destiny lies on two wheels. 

Below you will find a selection of articles about motorbikes that I have written for and also for the UCC student newspaper, the UCC Express.
