March 1, 2019
With the winter in Europe and North America slowly coming to an end, some of you will have had the chance to take out your motorcycle and put some miles on the clock.
For the ones of us living further south, these last couple of months have been incredible in terms of riding weather.
Guido, Jasper and I went on a roughly 600 km (375mi) trip through the Mexican Bajio. We departed from Guido’s house in Queretaro, drove through the semi-desert via San Miguel de Allende to the Sierra de los Lobos. We couldn’t get too far off the beaten track as the locals warned us of narco presence deep in the mountains… But we got lucky and hit a patch of beautiful dirt.
Dusty and thirsty, we finished the day in Lagos de Moreno:
In this week’s Moto Intel Report Guido gives an update on the facelift of Scenic, Jasper reviews an absolute classic and I’ll look at some of the most versatile must-have gadgets. We also take a look at motorcycle sales, Gore-Tex, WD-40 and motorcycle friendships.
Now, without further ado, let’s get rolling.

Is using WD-40 as a motorcycle chain cleaner a great budget solution or a really terrible idea? Here at Moto Intel Report the opinions were divided so I set out to investigate what the experts say. As discussed in previous editions of the MIR, the cleaning of you chain is an essential part of all chain-driven bikes. So, will WD-40 destroy your o-rings or not?
