Product review: Gold Label Soft Saddle Soap

Michael Neeves, 16 August 2012 10:09

Gold Label Soft Saddle Soap, £3.85 for 500gTime used: 15 years What’s good: This is the secret to my clean leathers, boots and gloves. I bought this saddle soap in a horsey shop in Canterbury in 1997, it’s lasted all this time and there’s still loads left. I run a damp sponge over my leathers first and then use a ...

Product review: Alpinestars Quick Seal Out Jacket and Pants

Michael Neeves, 16 August 2012 09:50

Alpinestars Quick Seal Out Jacket and Pants £89.99Time used: Six months What’s good: I’ve had more use out of these two-piece waterproofs than I’d like this year, thanks to all the rain we’ve had. They’re lightweight and fold away to almost nothing, so you can keep them in a rucksack or tank bag without taking up loads of room, which ...

Product review: BMW HP Race Datalogger

Michael Neeves, 07 June 2012 16:41

BMW HP Race Datalogger, £530Time used: Four months What’s good: This plug-and-play datalogger lets you keep on enjoying your 2010-2012 S1000RR long after you’ve finished riding. Designed for the track, after each session or race you just plug a memory stick into the back of the bike to download the data, then upload it on to your computer – it’s ...

Product review: EDZ neck warmer

Michael Neeves, 28 May 2012 12:18

EDZ neck warmer, £10Time used: 10 years What’s good: This is right up there as my best, most-used piece of riding kit and has been my trusty companion for the last 10 years. This exact model doesn’t exist now but the current EDZ ‘extra warm thermal neck warmer’ is the closest thing. It’s comfortable, warm and keeps the wind off ...

Jacket review: Alpinestars GP Pro

Michael Neeves, 23 May 2012 10:52

Alpinestars GP Pro leather jacket £429.99Time used: One year What’s good: This is a beautifully made and comfortable riding jacket, which is half of a two-piece racing suit. I wear this jacket with jeans generally, but sometimes use the leather bottoms for touring. It’s snug fitting and the 1.3mm full grain leather has a really nice satin finish to it, ...

Boot review: Alpinestars SMX Gore-Tex

Michael Neeves, 16 May 2012 11:42

Alpinestars SMX Gore-Tex boots (now superseded by SMX Plus Gore-Tex, £299.99)Miles covered/time: 10,000+/five years What’s good: I’ve been wearing these very durable waterproof boots for five years. I use them for my daily commute and on biking holidays. They’re warm, fully waterproof, look great and are lightweight enough to wear on a sports bike, even on track. They even have ...

Jacket review: Alpinestars waterproof over-jacket

Michael Neeves, 11 May 2012 10:17

Alpinestars waterproof over-jacket (superseded by Quick Seal Out version, £89.99)Time used: Six years What’s good: I’m not a huge fan of textile bike gear, I always find it a bit ‘frumpy’, so most of the time I either wear leathers or a leather jacket with this waterproof jacket over the top. You get the full protection of leathers and the ...

Helmet review: Arai RX-7 GP

Michael Neeves, 30 April 2012 11:44

Arai RX-7 GP. £649.99Time used: Three years What’s good: This is my everyday lid – the classic white with a black visor combo. I save my Rich Art painted Arai for road testing duties, but this is what I use the rest of the time for commuting, long bike trips and so far, three 3000-mile European holidays. The quality of ...

Glove review: Alpinestars 365 Gore Tex

Michael Neeves, 24 April 2012 12:33

Alpinestars 365 Gore Tex gloves £169.99Time used: Three years What’s good: These are the best gloves I’ve ever had. They’re a cross between a lightweight, dextrous racing glove and a warm, fully-waterproof Gore-Tex winter glove – the very best of both worlds. I wear them all the time for commuting, biking holidays and even racing when it’s really cold and ...

Product review: Startmonkey 400 jump starter

Michael Neeves, 24 April 2012 12:11

Startmonkey 400 jump starter £199Time used: Four months What’s good: What’s incredible about this battery pack is how much power it has for such a small unit. Once charged it will restart a standard 12V car battery 15-20 times (so smaller bike batteries are a piece of cake) and it retains 75% of its charge, even after a year without ...
