Product review: Airhawk seat

Airhawk seat, £159Miles covered/time: 1200/one month What’s good? This is probably the most effective motorcycle product I’ve ever tested. Before fitting it, my KTM Duke test bike became a pain in the bum after 40 miles of riding. Now the world is my oyster, having completing a 900-mile tour of Normandy in a long weekend with no saddle-soreness. The Airhawk ...

Hein Gericke Rallye II Gore-Tex boots

Hein Gericke Rallye II Gore-Tex boots, £199.99 Miles covered/time: 3000/three months What’s good? I was attracted by the understated style of these boots, along with the fact that they’re Gore-Tex lined and should therefore keep my tootsies warm and dry in all weathers. Although this refreshingly dry summer has meant that opportunities to test the latter have been few and ...

Product review: Silkolene Chain Cleaner

Silkolene Chain Cleaner, £8.49Time used: Two years What’s good? Cleaning and maintaining your drive chain is a filthy, thankless task – and tends to be one that tends to get pushed a long way down the list of priorities when spare time is at a premium.

Kit review: Hein Gericke Spyder gloves

Kit review: Nevr-Dull magic wadding polish

Nevr-Dull magic wadding polish, £5.99Time used: Three months What’s good? Like all the best things, this is brilliantly simple and brilliantly effective.

It will buff up steel, chrome and a ...

Glove review: BMW Allround gloves

BMW Allround gloves (superseded by Allround 2 gloves), £50  Miles covered/time: 8000/four yearsWhat’s good? A comfortable, lightweight, easy-to-use glove that’s wind and waterproof. Ideal for the more inclement times of year, they’re made from ‘hydrophobic’ cowhide underlined with Schoeler Keprotec – ie they’re warm with a good level of protection without being so bulky they induce ‘sausage finger’ syndrome and ...

Product review: Swarfega Jizer

Swarfega Jizer, £4.99Time used: Three monthsWhat’s good? Completely forgot I had this until a recent garage sort-out unearthed it – and it’s proved invaluable for de-greasing my Bonneville’s engine before its reassembly. I’ve only ever used brush-on Jizer before, but with the directional spray of this aerosol version it’s really easy to get the stuff exactly where you want it. ...
