Performance Bikes magazine August 2014 issue is out now

If ever there was a magazine to propagate a trouser tent it is this one.


In the August issue of Performance Bikes, we dedicate a massive 32-page chunk to the sexiest motorcycles money can buy.

It’s what you’d do with any supermodel...


It’s been a bloody busy month, but the best one of the year so far. I managed to sneak out of the offi ce to head over to the Isle of Man where I witnessed PB track tester Michael Rutter bag a top six in the Superbike TT and PB columnist John McGuinness win his fi rst TT Zero on the Mugen Shinden (his 21st TT win overall).


McPint then joined us at the PB trackday as chief instructor, where we put his amazing skills to good use helping readers get faster, while raising money for Riders for Health. Top bloke and a top day. Thanks to our partners Dunlop and Rockingham, and to everyone who came.
