Special K: BMW K1300S Anniversary

When it comes to ‘special editions’, BMW pretty much leads the way. Although Ducati and Triumph, in particular, have their own successful lines of ‘specials’ (bikes like the Tricolore or Steve McQueen Bonnie spring to mind), while the UK importers of Suzuki, Kawasaki and Yamaha are increasingly producing ‘Touring’ or ‘Adventure’ Packs and suchlike for existing models, BMW’s ‘Triple Black’, ...

Clothing Review: Triumph Engineered denim/Kevlar jeans

Triumph Engineered denim/Kevlar jeans, £159 Time tested: 500 miles/3 months What’s good? I've tried two or three types of 'riding jeans' before and these are my favourites so far.

Jacket Review: Triumph Newchurch leather jacket

Triumph Newchurch leather jacket, £310 Miles covered/time: 600 miles/two monthsWhat's good? If I knew ‘owt about fashion (which I don’t) I’d say these wax cotton-look, Belstaff/Barbour-style jackets are all the, er, ‘rage’ at the moment, as popular around Tesco as twin-shock trials. Trouble is, many are more show than go, expensive (a pukka leather Belstaff can cost a ridiculous £1200) ...

Boot Review: Alpinestars Joey Perforated suede shoe

Alpinestars Joey Perforated suede shoe, £129.99 Miles covered/time: 300 miles/2 months What's good? What’s not to like? Trendy ‘Converse-style’, lace-up baseball boots (as we used to call them in the ‘70s), but ramped up to be 21st century bike practical (well, at least a bit). So, flimsy canvas makes way for a tougher suede leather upper that’s wax-treated to be ...
