We seem to have a hat-full of
Honda’s this time and, amazingly, a pair of VFR400s but with very different stories to tell.
Yet another CB900F graces the pages along with the king of Big Aitch air cooled fours - the
CB1100R. Oh and a classic Honda race tribute bike as well. The appeal for trail bikes and
street scramblers has been well and truly answered.
We kick off this new topic with a very rare to these shores Honda MR175 and
then follow it in on Suzuki TS185 ERX. More on a similar theme to follow but nothing in the bag
for street scramblers yet so if you have one please let us know! Adding some balance to the
April issue we have a more modern Japanese classic in the guise of Kawasaki W650.
These beguiling bikes have a huge following and are just as relevant to Tansha
as the A series twins also featured as a road test.
As we go to press things look to be improving and hopefully we can all get out
there riding; fingers crossed etc. The editorial stable is being variously preened, cleaned,
serviced and fettled in the sincere hope they get some miles on them ASAP.
Our Shows & Events team have been busy planning for 2021 and hoping
everything goes according to schedule.
Page 5 details forthcoming events June to October so here’s hoping everyone
behaves and we can all get out there doing what we love!
If you’re out riding in 2021 please take some images of where you are and what
you’re riding. It seems like forever since we had reports about events and trips!
Stay safe and ride safe
