Boot review: Tuzo Race WP

Tuzo Race WP boots, £79.99Miles covered/time: 500/one month What’s good: Like most of my riding kit, these Tuzo Race WP boots have tasted gravel. It wasn’t the result of skill, the boots were followed by my knee, hips, shoulder and pride. On the plus side, they stood up very well. The toesliders took the brunt of the impact – and still ...

“Charge” movie review: a must see motorcycle film

Last month saw the release of “Charge”, British director Mark Neale’s take on the 2009/2010 electric TT races. It’s currently only available on DVD in North America, but with further countries scheduled for release - and digital download options to follow - the makers sent MCN a copy for review. The result? We’re able to wholeheartedly recommend it as one ...

HelmetLok

HelmetLok, £12.45 Time used: Six months What’s good: HelmetLok is a carabiner designed to attach your helmet to your handlebars. Open it up, slip it through your D-ring, click it shut and twizzle the combination lock away from your pre-set code. Leave helmet secure in the knowledge that opportunistic thieves can’t grab your lid and run. It’s off-putting enough to ...

Held Fame biker jeans

Held Fame biker jeans, £89.99 Miles covered/time: 1000/two months What’s good: Don’t let the two-star rating fool you. As jeans, these Held Fame jeans are fantastic. They’re extremely comfy, very warm, and suit the jeans-and-jacket biking look perfectly. I’ve enjoyed wearing them for commuting as they’re unobtrusive and I like how versatile and low key they are in comparison to leathers. Held ...

The amazing Hayabusa dirt trike

How do you go faster when you’re off-roading? Just add more BHP, right? This twisted logic is the basis for one of the oddest custom builds to surface on the internet yet: a GSX1300R Hayabusa dirt trike. The custom-built axle assembly is attached to a custom made drag-bike styled swingarm. To push the limits of sense and taste, it has ...

Retro riding skills: “adult, impulsive and brash”

Get ready to learn some retro riding skills, Aussie style. This road safety video from the Commonwealth Film Unit was made in 1959. It shows a bunch of “too-cool-for-school” bike-mad kids getting a lesson in bike safety, track riding and essential maintenance. Motorcycles, film-making and social values may have come a hell of a long way in the past 52 ...

Nuvo FX-1 Carbon

Nuvo FX-1 Carbon helmet, £209.99Miles covered/time: 600/three weeks What’s good: It’s an affordable, uni-composite carbon lid. That means it’s very light – 1300g – and its sleek, flickering reflections will send a frisson of excitement through your gut early on a Sunday morn. The vents are unobtrusive and – despite four unmissable NUVO logos – it’s quite the looker. What’s ...
