Product Review: GB Racing engine protection for BMW S1000RR

GB Racing engine protection for BMW S1000RR, £168 Tester: Andy Downes Time tested: 9500 miles/seven months What’s good?

Gloves Review: Alpinestars Tech Road GTX gloves

Alpinestars Tech Road GTX gloves £149.99 Time tested: 1500 miles/6 weeks What’s good: These have barely been off my hands over the past six weeks as my daily commuting winter gloves. They have seen temperatures as low as -8°C, lashing rain, snow, sleet, and more rain. So far they have been impregnable which comes as a massive relief, having had ...
