Our 2017 trip calendar is now online and bookings are being taken.  If a Spyder Club trip is something you have been considering before, stop considering and take advantage of our early booking incentive in association with Pirelli and Metzeler tyres.  Book a trip before the end of October 2016 and receive a free set of either Pirelli Angel GT or Metzeler Roadtec 01 tyres.

We have been lucky enough to be supplied by Pirelli and Metzeler tyres for many years at Spyder Club.  Our Pirelli tyre of choice has always been the Angel ST and now the Angel GT.  As a road going tyre it copes with everything, offering the rider confidence in the wet, excellent grip in the dry and longevity; there is little else on the market that performs as well.

Metzeler-Roadtec-01-Spyder-Club-Motorcycle-Trip-Incentive

In our opinion, and that of our members, the other tyre on the market that does perform as well, providing the same trust and feel through the bike to the ground and miles of fun at a reasonable cost, is the new Metzeler Roadtec 01.

Metzeler-Roadtec-01

It’s predecessor the Metzeler Roadtec Z8 was another well used tyre at Spyder Club and Spyder Motorcycle Hire and Short Term Lease.  It offered excellent value for money, with thousands of miles covered before a change was needed.  Having used the Roadtec 01 for the first time this year, we were very impressed, and again, so were the many that ride our club, tour, hire and lease fleet.

Pirelli-Angel-GT-05

As road tyres go there is little point looking at anything else.  Dual compound tyres that offer sports performance on the side walls for fantastic cornering feel and confidence, with a harder middle so you aren’t flattening them off the moment you think about sitting on straighter roads.

If you ride a motorcycle you’ll need a tyre change, it’s what happens.  So book yourself onto a Spyder Club trip in 2017 before the end of October 2016, we’ll buy you a set of Metzeler Roadtec 01 or Pirelli Angel GT tyres, we’ll even fit them at Silverstone at a very reasonable rate.

Spyder Club Bruntingthorpe Exclusive High Speed V-Max Day

Spyder-CLub-Bruntingthorpe-High-Speed-V-Max-Day

Another cracking day on the 2 mile runway at Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground in Leicestershire.  Guests enjoyed the craziness of being able to open up their motorcycles and cars to their limits in the safety of a closed circuit.

Spyder-CLub-Bruntingthorpe-High-Speed-V-Max-Day

As Sean W said, ‘wow, I’ve never been able to just whack open the throttle before and experience all the power and acceleration of my motorcycle.’  And that’s exactly what you can do at Bruntingthorpe with its masses of tarmac in front of you and either side.

Spyder-CLub-Bruntingthorpe-High-Speed-V-Max-Day

Whether in your car or on a bike, Bruntingthorpe is a great place to thrash your vehicle.  With a Porsche 911 Turbo reaching 191 mph (indicated) from a standing start and 192 mph with a flier, it was by far the fastest car.

Spyder-CLub-Bruntingthorpe-High-Speed-V-Max-Day

The bike title went to the BMW HP4.  We had two present, one however had had a few tweaks and with the non-stop track attack attitude of its rider Shaun K, he manage to clock a true 191 mph, he was a man on a mission.

Spyder-CLub-Bruntingthorpe-High-Speed-V-Max-Day

Faired bikes are the way forwards on a high speed day but for the few rides I managed at the end of the day, the naked KTM Super Duke R managed an indicated 185 mph.  Yes I had a sore neck later, but nothing a few glasses of wine couldn’t solve.  Man that thing moves, the torque of the line is relentless, however I was beaten by a Ducati 1198 SP.

Spyder-CLub-Bruntingthorpe-High-Speed-V-Max-Day

As usual our friends at RST and Arai came along to support the event and have a few runs down the runway, V-Maxing to their hearts content.  They also did a fair trade in selling a few sets of their superb leathers and helmets to the Bruntingthorpe Spyder Club guests.

We also had Bahnstormers BMW join us with some of their customers.  We like positive comments and smiling faces and that’s exactly what we got.  We hope they’ll be joining us at next years event in their quest to go ever faster.

Spyder-CLub-Bruntingthorpe-High-Speed-V-Max-Day

It really is a brilliant day and one we really enjoying running.  It’s such good fun and a day that just makes our guests smile.  We had an evening do and of course the talk was all about the speeds we did.

Spyder-CLub-Bruntingthorpe-High-Speed-V-Max-Day

The excitement and out of the ordinary experience that a high speed day at Brungtingthorpe brings is unique.  Being able to ride your bike, and drive your car if you have both there, to their max, or the max your own self preservation allows, is thrilling!

Spyder-CLub-Bruntingthorpe-High-Speed-V-Max-Day

For some, reaching the vehicles V-Max or stop point is what it’s all about.  Going the fastest they possibly can for as long as they can, getting the best start so the final top speed is the best possible, from their vehicle is what it’s all about.

Spyder-CLub-Bruntingthorpe-High-Speed-V-Max-Day

For others, the delight of reaching their own goals or finding their comfort zone and staying there is perfectly good enough.  And that’s what makes Spyder Club so good.  No one is exactly the same, yes we all have the passion for motorbikes, and many for business and cars too, but we are all different.

Spyder-CLub-Bruntingthorpe-High-Speed-V-Max-Day

As long as everyone is smiling and waxing lyrical, we are very happy because our customers are, it may be a cliche, yes, but that’s why our business is growing and our members and guests keep coming back for move.  Until the next one, we can’t wait until our 2017 Bruntingthorpe High Speed V-Max event.

Spyder Club Bavarian and Austrian Alps Motorcycle Tour

Add comment September 28th, 2016

Spyder-Club-Bavarian-and-Austrian-Alps-Motorcycle-Tour

Bavaria, what a beautiful area of Germany and the world!  It’s stunning, and offers some great biking on roads that are well surfaced and easy to ride.  It’s a trip we haven’t run before but were looking forward to following our recce trip.

Spyder-Club-Bavarian-and-Austrian-Alps-Motorcycle-Tour

Next door to Germany is Austria, so even though we concentrate on short break fly-ride or arrive and ride trips, we managed to take in some of the beautiful Austrian Alps and in particular, the unbelievable Grossglockner Pass.

Spyder-Club-Bavarian-and-Austrian-Alps-Motorcycle-Tour

The Grossglockner was the highlight of the trip but there were many other fantastic roads to ride in Bavaria and the Austrian Alps.

Spyder-Club-Bavarian-and-Austrian-Alps-Motorcycle-Tour

It’s only negative, would be that it’s not the most flowing, riding trip as to get to many of the good roads you need to travel through some towns and villages that slow progress and make parts of the riding a little stop-start; the stunning views compensate somewhat though!

Spyder-Club-Bavarian-and-Austrian-Alps-Motorcycle-Tour

If you are on a sightseeing motorcycle trip it’s the perfect destination because the towns and villages are spectacular.  Placed within the alpine vistas and with many interesting buildings to look around, a two up touring holiday is the perfect way to see the Bavarian and Austrian Alps.

Spyder-Club-Bavarian-and-Austrian-Alps-Motorcycle-Tour

We have spoilt our lot, regularly leading them on roads they can enjoy with little in their way to slow their progress.  Not that they didn’t enjoy this trip, it’s just different.  And of course the Grossglockner has to be experienced at least once.

Spyder-Club-Bavarian-and-Austrian-Alps-Motorcycle-Tour

Austria is very similar to Germany in terms of the towns.  Great roads and stunning scenery, just with regular reductions in speed.  There are of course areas that you can stretch your legs for prolonged periods, not as you can in Spain and southern France, but in both Bavaria and Austria there are plenty of exceptional roads to experience.

Spyder-Club-Bavarian-and-Austrian-Alps-Motorcycle-Tour

And that’s the best thing about visiting the Bavarian and Austrian Alps, the things to see and do.  Whilst a short break trip means we are there to ride, we did fit in a visit to the Eagles Nest, Hitler’s lair!

Spyder-Club-Bavarian-and-Austrian-Alps-Motorcycle-Tour

What a crazy place, for no other reason than what it was, or wasn’t as Hitler rarely visited, preferring to spend his days at the Berghof.  But the association is there and whilst meandering up the road which takes you higher and higher up the mountain, through the forest to the tunnel that brings you to the brass lift, propelling you even further up to the top, it all adds to create an eerie feeling because of the history surrounding it.

Spyder-Club-Bavarian-and-Austrian-Alps-Motorcycle-Tour

And then you arrive, leaving the lift you emerge from the building to see some of the best views in Bavaria.  A place that is related to such evil offers such beauty.  It’s well worth a visit.

Spyder-Club-Bavarian-and-Austrian-Alps-Motorcycle-Tour

If you like touring, the relaxed style, visiting points of interest and spending time photographing the views, Austria and Bavaria are a must.  If, on the other hand, you enjoy making progress, riding technical roads that challenge your riding rather than sweeping roads you can enjoy with a pillion, you may be more satisfied elsewhere.

Spyder-Club-Bavarian-and-Austrian-Alps-Motorcycle-Tour

We all enjoyed our four days in the Alps of Germany and Austria, it’s an area I’d like to spend more time in personally.  If you are planning a motorcycle trip, just go on a more touring friendly bike, something you can enjoy the sights from.  Or, if you like a more spirited ride with little time away from work and home, take a look at our 2017 Calendar, we have some great riding trips planned.
