Edward Hallett

Edward's first few years on motorcycles were solely on rented wheels. This meant experiencing the BMW 700gs and f800gs, touring on a Suzuki V-Strom 1000, and spending a few days off-road on a Honda Baja XLR250 in Sri Lanka and a Honda CRF250XLR in Australia.

It was only in 2018 when Edward bought his first bike, a 2007 Ducati Monster 695. After a year exploring Australia's New South Wales on this Italian masterpiece Edward moved back to London UK and bought a 2018 Yamaha XSR700.

The XSR has been tested on British and European roads as well as a stretch of the Trans-European Trail from Basingstoke to Salisbury. Now having accepted that the XSR is not ideally suited to green laning, there may be another bike on the horizon. There always is.
