Spyder_Club_May_Open_Day

A perfect day, the sun shone, the riding and company were excellent and the bikes available for guests to try were fantastic! A huge thank you to all of you who attended, making Saturday the 26th May such a good Spyder Club Open Day!!

The new additions to the Spyder Club fleet were very well received. The Ducati 1199 Panigale was praised for it’s ability to make guests feel very special, it’s handling and brakes and that engine! The Yamaha R1 also impressed with it’s characterful and super smooth inline four motor that provided effortless pace. The R1 and 1199 are very different but both showed why they have a big following.

The Husqvarna Nuda R gifted a smile to everyone that rode it. It was obvious some of our guests weren’t sure about it prior to riding it but everyone who did came back raving about the fun factor, with a superb engine and chassis combination it surprised many!

As did the Bimota DB4, with 80 bhp it’s far from the fasted bike on the Spyder Club fleet but just like the 1199 it has the ability to made the rider feel very special. The handling is still up there despite it being ten years old.

All the bikes available were enjoyed, the Triumph Daytona 675R, Ducati Streetfighter 848, Monster 1100 Evo and the unbelievably good Diavel entertained everyone riding at the Spyder Club Open Day.

A great day that ran into an evening meal to celebrate the life of our late friend and member, Vince Kerr, rest in peace!

The Husqvarna Nuda R Arrives at Spyder Club
It’s a bike members are desperate to ride; many of them saw it at the NEC bike show and realised the fun factor it holds.  Add to that it’s been well received and we have a cracking bike to add to the Spyder Club fleet.
It also means it’s arrived in time for this Saturday’s Open Day based near Coventry, as has the weather!  Come along for a day’s riding and experience what Spyder Club has to offer!
A huge thank you to Touratech and Husqvarna Motorcycles for working with us here at Spyder Club!

Ducati 1199 Panigale

1199 Panigale and R1 016

Very impressed with the latest Ducati superbike, the 1199 Panigale is a bike to lust after, an event every outing and incredibly good at what it does.  The 1198 S was a step up from the 1098 S but this is a massive leap, space travel, out of this world, I’ve fallen in love!

Ducati 1199 Panigale and Yamaha R1 Arrive at Spyder Club

We are very pleased to have the Ducati 1199 Panigale and Yamaha R1 on the Spyder Club fleet. They are here, at long last our members can book these two unbelievably good motorcycles and enjoy a very special riding experience! Want to ride them and others like them from £950 per year, get in touch!

We are very pleased to have two new bikes on the Spyder Club fleet that will not fail to entertain any motorcycle enthusiast!
The Yamaha R1 is our first inline four since our F4 and S1000RR left us last year and initial impressions put it right up there!  Already it is showing it has more character than the S1000RR and sounds just as special as the MV.  It has effortless power from right at the bottom of the rev range and is as smooth as silk, once run in it’ll make everyone smile!
The Ducati 1199 Panigale has arrived on the fleet!  Is this as bigger deal as the RSV4 Factory and S1000RR, hell yes!  Just like the R1 it is very special!  It has Ducati character oozing from it, the brakes are unbelievable and you know once those tyres are scrubbed it will cling on to any corner.  Both these bikes are massively impressive, come and enjoy them!
In this economy Spyder Club makes sense, £28,000 worth of motorcycles have just arrived at Spyder Club and you can be riding them along with many others from as little as £950 per annum, isn’t it about time you spoke to us?!?!

It’s precise on the road and has a rumble you just want to hear more of, once run in it’ll make everyone smile!

An Event Filled Donington Park World Superbike

Add comment May 14th, 2012

World Superbike Donington Park Melandri Haslam Rea

Jonathan Rea (Honda World Superbike Team) took his second race win of the season after an incident-strewn race at Donington. On the first corner Carlos Checa (Althea Racing Ducati) and Eugene Laverty (Aprilia Racing Team) touched and Checa went down, taking out Jakub Smrz (Liberty Racing Team Effenbert Ducati) and Checa’s team-mate Davide Giugliano.
Then Laverty crashed down Craner Curves, as up front eventual third place man Tom Sykes (Kawasaki Racing Team) led for most of the race distance. He was finally mugged by a warring faction which included eventual second place man Max Biaggi (Aprilia Racing Team) and both BMW Motorrad Motorsport Riders, Leon Haslam and Marco Melandri. After a multitude of overtakes and riders running off track on occasion, Haslam looked to have it won until both he and Melandri ran wide at the very last corner and Rea pushed inside. They collided and Haslam fell, knocking off Melandri as he slid on the track. Rea held on to win by just over half a second from Biaggi, with Sykes two second back. Leon Camier (Fixi Crescent Suzuki) was an impressive fourth.
In the championship, the final dramas mean that Biaggi has 128.5 points, Sykes 123.5, Rea 108, Checa 105.5 and Melandri 97.5.

Brits on top at Donington Park, both setting times under 1 minute 28 seconds, taking Checa’s lap record from last year! Lets hope the weather is as good as the forecast and Sykes and Haslam take a win each!!

Chris ‘The Stalker’ Walker Wins at Oulton Park

Add comment May 7th, 2012

Chris Walker

A masterful race from The Stalker in a wet race at Oulton Park provided a long awaited and very popular step to the top of the podium.

Chris rode a brilliant race, coming through the field to take his first win in twelve years. Shakey had no response to Chris’ wet ride on full wets rather than the inters Shakey expected his chaser to be on!

Let’s hope his new found confidence sees him do just as well in race two!

The Arrival of the Ducati 900 S for the Track!

Add comment May 2nd, 2012

Spain Ducati 900 S

The first of the new track fleet has arrived at Spyder Club. This Ducati 900 S will be available to members and non-members joining us on the Niall Mackenzie instructed track days with Focused Events.

Currently the other track bike is a Ducati 848, this will be leaving us soon and replaced with something just as entertaining!

First impressions of the 900 S are very good, plenty of room to move about and enough poke for us mortals! The handling is typical Ducati, superb just as it is!

If you are interested in being instructed by Niall Mackenzie on track, please contact us.
