Motorcycle Hire at Spyder Club

Add comment May 8th, 2015


Ever thought of hiring a motorcycle? Renting a motorbike for a period of time either to get to know it before you buy or because you have a big trip planned and your sports bike won’t fit the bill, for instance!


Spyder Club has been providing motorcycles through it’s members club scheme since 2008. In 2014 we teamed up with Ducati UK and KTM UK and became motorcycle hire partners, providing motorcycle enthusiasts with the opportunity to enjoy more bikes. We also took on many new BMW motorcycles, Triumph bikes and partnered with MV Agusta dealership, Bennetts Motorcycles in Barnsley, to offer even more motorcycles to hire.


Whether you want a BMW R1200GS, KTM Advenutre, Ducati Multistrada or Triumph Tiger to rent for the annual trip to Europe or a Ducati Panigale, BMW S1000RR, Triumph Daytona, MV Agusta F4 or KTM RC8 to hire for a special day out, Spyder Club Motorcycle Rental service can help!


Our rental service can also be used by riders wanting a proper test ride prior to buying. It may cost you to rent a motorcycle for a weekend but it gives you a far better idea of the bike you are interested in buying than a 30 minute test ride. Spending £10,000 plus on a motorcycle that you realise isn’t right is an expensive mistake, spending money on a day or weekends motorcycle hire and making the right decision on the other hand, is money well spent.


So if you enjoy the prospect of riding lots of different motorcycles through our motorbike hire service, or renting what could be your next pride and joy, please get in touch with Spyder Club to discuss this further, we look forward to hearing from you.


Bruntingthorpe Exclusive High Speed Day

Add comment May 5th, 2015


190 miles per hour on a Ducati 1199 Panigale is the fastest speed I have ever travelled at, on tarmac! It’s an incredible feeling, as if you are gliding along the surface of the two mile runway at Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground in Leistershire, head buried behind the screen, watching the scene in front of you get bigger and bigger at an alarming rate, the wind louder than ever in your plugged ears. Hitting the brakes and gradually raising your head so you don’t leave the bike faster than it’s going with the force of the air, pulling up to the rest of the participants with the biggest smile upon your face, and staying on cloud nine for the rest of the day!

Then climbing off the bike, out of your leathers and into a comfortable leather seat, enclosing yourself into the protective metal frame as the door shuts, air-conditioning encaged, hit the throttle pedal and away! The contrast is incredible, it’s a very different experience, flooring the accelerator pedal and watching the speed climb, at a slower pace than the bike, with the raw of the engine subdued by your helmet and the car itself as opposed to the direct exposure you’ve just experienced from the bike’s engine.


Both two and four wheeled experiences are incredible. To be able to increase the speed of the vehicle as much as it will go is something everyone should do. Not only because it is hilarious, but also because it shows you just how stable and easy modern day machines are!

At last years Spyder Club Exclusive Bruntingthorpe High Speed Day we saw a Ferrari FF reach 190 mph from a standing start and the world record holding Streetfighter Turbine bike see 202 mph. In 2013, the fastest cars had limiters on their top speeds, 168 mph in a BMW M5 V8 twin turbo and Mercedes C63 AMG and 175 from a Jaguar XKR 5.0. There were other cars running, a few Ferraris and Porsche 911, Audi RS4, all hit bigger speeds but were left for dead by the three previously mentioned cars in sheer acceleration.


We have had some seriously fast road bikes with us too. Perhaps the biggest surprise was the BMW K1300S which left the majority of other bikes for dead! Jumping out of the gates on the 1199 next to the K1300S, I initially had the advantage, for a split second, before the 4 cylinder motor propelled the longer chassis of the BM passed, not into the distance but certainly ahead.


The BMW HP4 bikes we’ve had join us, four in total, have also been exceptionally quick, as have been the Kawasaki ZZR 1400 of which two have come to play. A top speed of 194 mph was reached on one of the ZZR, not quite in standard form I will add!

So if you like the idea of joining us on the 25th July for our Exclusive Bruntingthorpe High Speed Day and seeing what speeds your bike and/or car can achieve over the 2 mile Bruntingthorpe runway, please contact us to discuss being part of a truly fantastic and hilarious day!


New Bikes Arriving at Spyder Club

Add comment May 1st, 2015


There have been a number of new additions to the Spyder Club fleet in the last few weeks and still they keep coming! On Tuesday we rode the massive distance of 200 metres from Ducati UK to Spyder Club HQ on our new Ducati Scrambler.  We still haven’t ridden it properly yet, but time permitting, will hopefully do so this weekend and no doubt reveal it’s brilliances. It’s a bike we’ve been looking forward to for a long time.


Winging its way to us in the back of a van is a Triumph Tiger 800 with panniers, top box and heated grips, perfect for a long weekend or a few weeks touring in European.  It should be here in a few hours if the bank holiday traffic doesn’t hold it up and is another bike we hope to play on this weekend!


Then there’s the exceptional KTM 1290 Super Adventure which is now run in and off to Wales this weekend with one of the Spyder Club members. With a top box fitted thanks to Gear 4 in Market Deeping and 160 bhp to nurse, he’s going to have a great weekend, OK, because of the bike rather than the top box!


We also spent a bit of cash with Bennett’s Motorcycles in Barnsley too. First up is a Triumph Daytona 675 which will be kept in road trim for use on the public highways and will be available to members as a track bike, mostly here at Silverstone for convenience.

We are also replacing the MV Agusta Brutale 800 Dragster, with another 800 triple from MV, the standard Brutale, beautiful!


With luck the Ducati 1299 Panigale and Multistrada are being unpacked from their crates at Ducati UK as we speak and the Ariel Ace is hopefully just a few weeks away from completion. We also have the BMW S1000XR and R1200RS to look forward to in June as well. That will take the Spyder Club total bike tally over the last seven years to 130 different machines, all of which can be accessed from as little as £1,200 a year.

JOIN Spyder Club and enjoy riding new motorcycles for a fraction of the ownership costs.
