Yamaha MT-10 Tourer Edition

Spyder-Club-Yamaha-MT-10-Tourer-Edition

In 2013 we ran a Yamaha R1 with its crossplane crank and unique in-line 4 cylinder howl, it went down exceptionally well with members.  Our Yamaha UK contact moved on and it took a while to reignite the relationship.

Spyder-Club-Yamaha-MT-10-Tourer-Edition

Members loved the R1 and their comments often suggested its engine would be brilliant in a sports tourer too, torquey, smooth and punchy as hell when you wanted to have fun.

Spyder-Club-Yamaha-MT-10-Tourer-Edition

So when the opportunity of a meeting with Yamaha UK appeared we grabbed it and are now working on an agreement to have their motorcycles back on the Spyder Club and Motorcycles’ hire and lease fleet.

Spyder-Club-Yamaha-MT-10-Tourer-Edition

In preparation of this new agreement, Yamaha loaned us an MT-10 Tourer Edition, with that lovely crossplane crank 1,000 cc, in-line 4, for the Season Finale trip to Southern Spain.  So, did members got the bike they desired 4 years ago?

Spyder-Club-Yamaha-MT-10-Tourer-Edition

Hell yeah, what a great bike!  The engine torque and sound are superb, for me, it works even better than it does in the R1.  On twisting Spanish roads it performed fantastically, that engine never stops pulling, well I’m sure it does but I’m happy making the next corner!

Spyder-Club-Yamaha-MT-10-Tourer-Edition

The riding position is perfect, upright enough to be comfortable all day long whilst still feeling sporty, and returning to that motor, you can’t help feel like the GOAT himself, well, a far less talented version anyway.  The sound is intoxicating.

Spyder-Club-Yamaha-MT-10-Tourer-Edition

When stood back from the bike the chassis looks short but the tech spec reveals it’s over 2 metres in length.  It does turn in quickly though whilst braking is very stable.  It feels really chuckable too, you can really hustle the bike through the technical roads we ride under the sunshine skies of Spain.

Spyder-Club-Yamaha-MT-10-Tourer-Edition

So what did our guests think?  Sized up against stiff opposition in the shape of a KTM 1290 GT, BMW S1000XR, Aprilia Tuono, Triumph Street Triple 765 RS and Ducati Monster 1200R?  They loved it!

Spyder-Club-Yamaha-MT-10-Tourer-Edition

Two of the guys felt it flattered their riding the best, praise indeed when you consider the cost of the other bikes with us which share its sports touring credentials.

Spyder-Club-Yamaha-MT-10-Tourer-Edition

It’s a very accomplished motorcycle and a effortless fast touring bike with loads and loads of power, the GOAT may need a few more BHP.  Would we have one on the fleet?  We have already ordered one.

Spyder-Club-Yamaha-MT-10-Tourer-Edition

Thank you Yamaha, we can’t wait for our MT-10 Tourer Edition to join the fleet and be with us on the April Season Starter in Spain, there will be many more members revving that throttle wanting to hear those sweet notes.

Triumph Street Triple 765 RS and Bobber Review

Add comment April 6th, 2017

Spyder-Spanish-Motorcycle-Tour-2017-G1-2

My first rides of both the brand-new Triumph Street Triple 765 RS and Bonneville Bobber were in the freezing cold temperatures of the UK.  The RS in particular was ridden at night, in the rain and with 4 degrees indicated on the very flash dash; the bath after that ride was far more rewarding!

However, fast forward a week and our first guests for the Spyder Club Season Starter trip arrived into a beautifully sunny Andalucia, Southern Spain to ride, amongst others, the two new Triumph machines.
Bobber first, it was the bike that whilst riding, I had the best of the weather and roads with back in the UK and I haven’t had the chance to ride it in Spain yet.  Straightaway though, it was so easy to ride.  The 1200cc motor pulls effortlessly and is smooth as silk.

On dry roads around Northampton in slightly warmer temperatures than I’d ridden the RS the night before, the Bobber flowed beautifully through the sweeping corners.  Getting lost in a large town, the motor, handling and controls were predictable and did nothing to hamper my ride as I searched for my way back home.

TriumphBobber
However, the feedback from our trip guests whilst in Spain has been the most interesting.  Here in the mountains close to Ronda, we spend most of our riding time enjoying technical and challenging roads, the Bobber has kept its cool throughout.

Not a single guest has been unsure of the superbly built and quality feeling Bobber.  In the past, the retro styled bikes have divided opinion but that’s not been the case with the Triumph.  From our guys who enjoy the sportier bikes, to the chaps who are happier with an adventure style machine, all seven riders in Group One have been massively impressed with the Bobber.  It handles everything we put in its way: from hairpins, to fast sweepers, it was never left behind and with the glorious twin soundtrack, just put a smile on everyone’s face.  It’s been an exciting talking point.

Photo 29-03-2017, 17 52 06

And on to the RS.  I have been lucky enough to ride this bike on roads is was built for.  On this trip, we have a 2010 Street Triple R, a 2016 RX and the new 765 RS.  The reason we bought the RX and RS out to Spain was to get guests to ride both bikes back to back, the 2010 R is Spyder Lizzi’s bike.

I am a massive fan of the Street Triple, it’s the perfect lead bike, enough power to have plenty of fun, handling that competes with many far more focused machines and a predictability to flatter any rider, old or new.

With long term Spyder Club member ‘Quick Mick’ behind me on the RS and me on the RX, we agreed to stop 15 miles in to a 30 mile stretch of 2nd and 3rd gear cornering roads.  The RX showed its usual talents and made me smile and giggle for the entire ride.

Stopping in a village to swap, I climbed aboard the RS and within seconds felt the advances of the new machine.  It’s so light, so flickable, but as Mick said, ‘it’s a scalpel.’  The precision with which you can turn and hit the exact spot you want to is unbelievable.  How have Triumph taken an exceptional motorcycle, the previous generation Street Triple, and made it even better?

TriumphStreetTripleRSresized

As with the Bobber, the seven guests all agreed it was a cracking motorcycle and definitely a contender for the best bike ever.  The engine is a peach, even in the more revy RS model, it’s so responsive throughout the rev range and the howl from that triple motor is brilliant.

As yet we haven’t played with the new toys the RS benefits from over the older models, in time no doubt we’ll have more to say on the RS.

At the end of the 30 miles I got Spyder Lizzi to ride it.  Her 2010 Street Triple R is not something she gives up lightly, but after 20 miles on the RS, Lizzi has found her replacement.

The two new additions to the Triumph model range have been a joy to ride under the sunny skies of Spain and even in the cold and wet back home.  Whether you are looking for nostalgia or bang up to date technology, the Bobber and RS are simply brilliant motorcycles that have massively impressed all of our Spyder Club Season Starter trip guests, and I have no doubt the next group will enjoy them just as much.

Spyder Club at the NEC Motorcycle Live Show 2016

Add comment December 8th, 2016

Motorcycle_Live_2016

Another season finished and what better way to end it than at the Motorcycle Live Show, our ninth year, and 9 whole days standing on your feet!  Actually, it’s a great way for us to meet potential members, trip guests and short-term lease customers and also catch up with current members, manufacturers and our partners.  2016 has been our busiest year so although the show felt a little longer than usual, it was still great to be there.

Spyder_Club_at_Motorcycle_Live_2016

And how the motorcycle world has changed during the last 9 years since we began Spyder Club.  In recent years, the retro scene has been building, with an increasing presence seen over the years in the NEC halls.  This year there was a veritable retro tornado throughout almost all of the manufacturer stands, and some of the new bikes looked awesome.

Motorcycle_Live_2016

Triumph in particular have embraced the mass of interest in retro bikes and the scene.  Their unveiling of the Bobber in London recently was a fantastic event and nod to their commitment towards this genre.  The Bobber launch was superbly organised and filled to bursting with bearded, Belstaff jacket wearing bikers, free drink in hand and primed for purchases.  So far, we have only had the pleasure of owning a Street Twin, which, for the base model, is a truly brilliant motorcycle.  Triumph have really made their mark in the scene, hats (or helmets) off.

Motorcycle_Live_2016

You could argue BMW started the interest of the general populous in retro bikes with the fantastic R nineT a few years ago.  BMW have seen big things from their initially limited run R nineT and this year, have further capitalised on its success with exciting variations and many custom options.  With four R nineT’s spending time at Spyder Club since their launch at the beginning of 2014, it’s safe to say it’s a popular bike with our membership and trip guests, indeed, eight members and trip guests have voted with their wallets and bought their own.

Motorcycle_Live_2016

Whilst the R nineT can be given some of the credit for the eruption of the retro scene in the UK, the Moto Guzzi V7 has been a steadfast option for many years.  At this year’s Motorcycle Live show, the Piaggio Group stand had on display in their Moto Guzzi area the most beautiful V7 model.  The V750 with its chrome tank and brown leather seat was a real show stopper.  The V7 is often at the top of many group tests and whilst Spyder Club has never owned one, we house the Moto Guzzi press fleet so have been lucky enough to ride one on a regular basis, they really are fantastic, simple fun.

Motorcycle_Live_2016

We have owned a Ducati Scrambler, and we’re big fans.  Again, a simple, cracking, great motorcycle.  Retro bikes tend to do without the modern gizmos many bikes now have bolted on and that’s one reason to love them.  With enough power on tap to make you smile, these bikes make huge sense on damaged, busy English roads.  All the bikes mentioned are great on our B roads, however we have enjoyed the Ducati Scrambler on the flowing bends on the Route Napoleon where it kept many a big bike at bay.

Spyder_Club_at_Motorcycle_Live_2016

The show wasn’t all about the retro bikes, as usual it was filled with so much we would like to buy, the Spyder Club wallet ached at the thought.  The new KTM 1290 Super Duke and Adventure look stunning and as the current Super Duke and Adventure are already just that, the new ones are only going to be better.  The new colour schemes on the fantastic BMW R1200GS and RS look great, as do those on the Ducati Monster 821.  We love the Ducati SuperSport, one will be on the 2017 Club fleet for sure.

Spyder_Club_at_Motorcycle_Live_2016

Of course you can’t pass by the Aprilia stand without ogling the RSV4 and Tuono, well we are bikers!  The V4 engines are just to die for, and now we hear there’s another Italian V4 on the way, that’s a back to back test ride we’ll definitely want to organise for our members and trip guests.

Spyder_Club_at_Motorcycle_Live_2016

It’s been a while since the Club had a cruiser, the last being a Victory Judge and Hammer S; great fun and having been, at that time, predominately a sports and naked bike riders, it showed us a more relaxed and laid back style of riding that isn’t to be sneered at.  Another Polaris marque is the Indian, as yet we haven’t had the pleasure of riding one, but the Scout looks to be a popular contender.

Two more honourable mentions to the Moto Guzzi Flying Fortress which looks incredible and of course the new Norton V4 which simply has to be seen to be believed.

Spyder_Club_at_Motorcycle_Live_2016

The bikes are of course the stars of the show, however there was a lot of other things to spend your money on, or dream about.  Whether planning your trip to the Isle of Man TT or the annual European tour, testing your next bike or trying on the next set of leathers or helmet, the Motorcycle Live show has a mass of things to see and do.  But let’s face it, us exhibitors know that every morning, when the doors are flung open, the masses flock straight to the manufacturer stands so they can sit on all the new bikes, and we wait until you all filter through to the other stands from 11.00 onwards.

Spyder_Club_at_Motorcycle_Live_Moto_Guzzi_Flying_Fortress

And so, another year at the NEC, Motorcycle Live show is done, and with it the Spyder Club season.  We are already full speed ahead with plans and ordering bikes for the 2017 season which will be here before you know it.  It’s a tough job deciding which bikes to add to the fleet but one thing’s for sure, with over 160 different motorcycles being ridden by Spyder Club members and trip guests since we started in 2008, we’ll be pushing to break the 200 mark before our tenth birthday.

Spyder Club November Spain Trip 2016

Add comment December 8th, 2016

Spyder_Club_November_Spain_Trip_2016

Another Spyder Club season has finished in Spain, north of Alicante, in the best possible way.  With 9 guests, perfect weather and blissfully quiet, challenging roads, our November Spain trip was fantastic.

Spyder_Club_November_Spain_Trip_2016

Four of our guests were first timers, and all have booked another trip for 2017.  The riding was as we expect, safe and within each individual’s comfort zone.  No egos, no points to prove, just smiles and happy riders on a fantastic range of motorcycles.

Spyder_Club_November_Spain_Trip_2016

There are some incredible roads north of Alicante which is one of the reasons we head back each year.  We also have a lot of the same guests joining us year after year, why, because those roads just get better and better.  The tarmac is in great condition, the Spanish drivers are very aware and, did I tell you how good the roads are?!

Spyder_Club_November_Spain_Trip_2016

As usual our guests enjoyed swapping between a stunning fleet of motorcycles each day.  Bikes that joined us included a BMW S1000XR, RR and R1200GS, a Ducati XDiavel, Monster 1200R and 821, Multistrada and Streetfighter 848, Triumph Street Triple R and RX and Street Twin and KTM 1290 Super Duke R, not that shabby.

Spyder_Club_November_Spain_Trip_2016

As usual all the bikes impressed however, as with most 2016 trips, the Ducati Monster 1200R and KTM 1290 Super Duke R were firm favourites and Spyder Club members and trip guests have voted with their feet as each has sold well as a result of being ridden either on a trip or through membership.

Spyder_Club_November_Spain_Trip_2016

However, it’s not been just the super naked bikes that deserve praise and ended up producing a bank transaction.  The BMW R1200GS, S1000XR and Ducati Multistrada have all received the same acclaim and as ever, different motorcycles made more sense on different roads.

Spyder_Club_November_Spain_Trip_2016

A lot more manufacturers are going with wider handle bars on more of their bikes and it makes a big difference.  Especially if you are sat upright, in comfort and with good vision, those big bars mean you can flip from side to side so efficiently and enjoy the bike and road so much more, or does that mean I’m getting older?

Spyder_Club_November_Spain_Trip_2016

And so, that’s another trip season done at Spyder Club.  Already we are looking forward to our Season Starter in southern Spain, Andalucia and the rest of the 2017 short break, fly-ride motorcycle trips.  If you enjoy meeting likeminded bike enthusiasts, trying different motorcycles and riding enjoyable, challenging roads at your own pace, get in touch to find out why our guests keep coming back.

Triumph Bonneville Bobber Launch Event

Add comment October 20th, 2016

Triumph-Bobber

What a night, well done Triumph for organising a fun packed and well attended night and the launch a very cool, very retro motorcycle…

Triumph-Bonneville-Bobber-Launch

We were lucky enough to be invited along with a few of our members who had a great evening.  With music from The Vaccines and DJ Harriet Rose, Bobber sprint racing with Carl Fogarty and Freddie Spencer along with a host of journos, there was plenty of entertainment.

Triumph-Bonneville-Bobber-Launch

But the main attraction was the bike.  A restyle of the Bonneville, with a floating aluminium seat, a torquier version of the 1200 cc twin engine from the T100, it sounded good and I can’t wait to ride it.

Triumph-Bonneville-Bobber-Launch

So, should Spyder Club buy one?  We’d be silly not to.  The retro scene is a big deal and Triumph are ahead of the game with the Bobber.  It’ll go down a storm in London judging from last night’s reaction.

Triumph-Bonneville-Bobber-Launch

So we look forward to another fantastic Triumph creation and thank them for their invitation to a great night.

Spyder Club Bruntingthorpe Exclusive High Speed V-Max Day

Add comment September 28th, 2016

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.

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

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.
