We are not another motorcycle website just reviewing expensive bikes or taking all-expenses-paid jollies to lands far, far, away (although if the people at Yamaha are reading this, yes we’d love to take the new R1 up on The Mountain Road at the next TT.
This is a site designed to impart knowledge to bikers, to get them sorted.
Our mission is to better your everyday biking experience, from improving security when you leave your bike in a commuter motorcycle bay, to developing your riding skills.
The site was started because of the explosion in YouTube videos showing bikes being stolen or worse, gangs robbing bikes from bikers on their daily commute.
We decided to do something about it. Forewarned is forearmed, so decided that a map of bike thefts would help the police and local authorities deal with bike crime better.
We tracked down every decent tip and piece of advice on how to secure your bike better and we review any product that we think can help achieve that. We want to dispel the theory that you can protect a £6000 bike with a £30 lock.
Insurance is a big thing for most bikers, so again, we track down best practice advice and tips, often from insurance industry insiders, to help bikers save money on cheaper insurance or if they can’t save money then get the best insurance deal for their needs. Our aim and purpose is to educate you so you know what to look for and look out for.
If we thought we can save bikers money on insurance and protecting their bike, it was natural for us to turn to trying to save money on the bikes they want to buy too.
It was almost as if we were becoming a money-saving expert for bikes. And that suits us fine.
But we don’t want to stop at saving bikers money. We really, really want to help bikers get more out of their passion.
The editorial team happens to be nuts about track days. So we have lots of advice on how to get into them, how to enjoy them and how to improve your riding skills as you do more of them. Why is there so much emphasis on something that a lot of people consider to be a very dangerous pastime? Because, especially if you ride a sports or fast naked bike, we firmly believe that a signet track day experience will improve your riding ability by 100%.
We also love getting out and about on bikes and discovering the world from two wheels. So touring is a big part of Biker & Bike. We can’t visit everywhere ourselves so how about you contribute some of your own experiences and journeys?
Seeing as we want to become the number one resource for biking tips and lifestyle we’re also going to help with one of the most difficult aspects of biking – buying and selling your bike. Our classifieds section is still being planned at the moment, but once it’s launched and you add your bikes it can only grow, and hopefully become one of the most economical ways to trade up or down.
If you are in the process of either buying or selling a motorbike, get yourself sorted by reading our guides.
And once you have found that dream bike we, of course, want to ensure you look after it and your gear.
It takes time to write and film every little mechanical tip and trick for maintaining your motorbike, so again, if you have great ideas, please send them in to us at editorial @ bikerandbike.co.uk.
