The motorbike season kicked off in style this year in Hastings at the annual biker pilgrimage known as the May Day Run. With over 40,000 bikes and 96,000 people in the town and the sun shining, the event was a great success and is attracting a bigger audience every year. With the news that motorbike sales are up 15% on this time last year and the economy improving, there is cause for some long overdue optimism. Our stand on the seafront was buzzing and it was fantastic to chat to many readers during the day and pick up lots of feedback.

We hope to get along to as many events over this summer as possible so look forward to seeing many of you there. Check out the events page and the website for what’s going on. See us at Freestyle on July 5th, Viking Motorcycle Seats on July 6th and at the new Bexhill Motofest on July 27th. Plus whatever else we can fit in.

Issue 33 is rammed with some fantastic articles covering all things bike. Our mate Rob Guiver took the top spot at Brands Hatch with us cheering him on. We get to grips with three of the new BMWs, Pete Mills updates us on his charity ride, Talan Skeels-Piggins of The Bike Experience tackles Brands and a deaf old man tries out the Ultimate ear protection. We take a look at what SERV controllers get up to while the other volunteers are whizzing around on their bikes. If you are planning some track days this summer, check out Simon Thorne’s fitness tips and get the best from your day. Fancy a bike related weekend away? Why not visit Sam Manicom’s Horizons Unlimited HUBB gathering at Donnington or Austin Vince’s Adventure Travel Film Festival? In fact you can win a pair of tickets to Austin’s shindig if you enter our competition.

All the Best
