Lidl oil filter removal band

Lidl oil filter removal band, £2.99 Time used: Four months What’s good: So many filters require special filter remover due to their inaccessible locations, normally inside a fairing behind a row of very hot exhaust pipes, as you have just warmed up the engine to change the oil. This filter remover can cope with most filters from 50mm diameter up ...

Boots review: Alpinestar Roger Decoster boots

Alpinestar Roger Decoster boots(Superseded long ago. Modern equivalent Alpinestar Tech 8, £329.99) Miles covered/time: 50,000+/30 years What’s good? I don’t think there are many boots still in use that could boast 30 years of use and still not only be wearable, but also waterproof. These boots were the ultimate biker ‘must have’ when I was cutting my teeth in the ...

Glove review: Spada Elite

Spada Elite Glove £79.99Miles covered/time: 1700/nine months What’s good? I first wore these on a hot day in the summer. They really did feel lovely – you can’t beat the feeling of new gloves – but the only problem was that, after about 20 minutes, my hands were positively wet with sweat. Save £££s on motorcycle gloves So these needed ...

Glove review: RST Pro Series WP

RST Pro Series WP Glove, £59.99Miles covered/time: 5500/11 month What’s good? These are a reasonably priced pair of waterproof summer gloves. I am a person who gets sweaty hands when they get too hot, and there’s nothing worse than trying to get your glove off in a petrol station and pulling out half the lining, then spending the next half ...

Product review: Acumen AcuTrac

Acumen AcuTrac, from £349.99Miles covered/time: 1500/three months What’s good? The tracker unit itself is small and discreet, so it’s fairly easy to secrete on your bike (we’ve not photographed the unit here, so thieves won’t know what to look for). Fitting can be done simply and easily, and takes around half an hour. The moment the power is connected a ...

Product review: Aerostich Ultralight rain pants

Aerostich Ultralight rain pants, $77 (£67)Miles covered/time: 7000 miles/nine months Save £££s on motorcycle products What’s good? The ultimate in lightweight, waterproof nylon over-trousers. I spent much of the summer riding in Kevlar jeans so the fact that these waterproofs pack into such a small palm-sized package, making it easy to stash away, make them a must for any journey. ...

Kit review: Aerostich Darien fleece liner

Aerostich Darien fleece liner, $187 (£118)Miles covered/time: 3500/15 monthsWhat’s good? Most jacket linings are exactly that – linings, not something you could wear on its own. The (deep breath) Darien TKLTec Wind Blocker Fleece Liner is cleverly designed and well thought out. If the weather is too warm to wear it during the day, it folds very neatly into a ...
