Product review: BMW bike cover

BMW bike cover, £64 Time used: 10 months What’s good: Typically of BMW accessories, it’s well designed and made. BMW supplied it when I had a G650GS as a long-term test bike. Now that’s gone but I still like to use this on my own motorcycles. It’s easily big enough to accommodate a middleweight with fairing and luggage rack. It’s ...

Product review: Tucano Urbano off-road and custom-bike cover

Tucano Urbano off-road and custom-bike cover, £40.99Time owned: Nine months What’s good: Some covers I’ve used rub on bodywork under the motion of the wind, damaging paintwork over time. This has a silky-soft lining which should prevent that. It’s easy to sling over the bike, roomy enough to accommodate a top box and has holes along the hem for a ...

Product review: Tucano Urbano Nano rain jacket and trousers

Tucano Urbano Nano rain jacket, £49.99, and trousers, £39.99 Time used: Three months What’s good: This is rainwear that fits in your pocket. They’re lightweight – the jacket is 180 grams, the trousers 170 – and compact. Both fold into tiny 50cl bags, the size of a small bottle of water. With some squishing, they should fit in even the ...

Product review: Skidmarx fairing lower

Skidmarx fairing lower, £99.95Time used: One year What’s good: Like many riders I’m sure, I’m slightly addicted to accessorising my bikes, often needlessly. So when I saw that Skidmarx still produce a bellypan to fit my 1986 GPz550, I couldn’t stop myself getting one. I thought it would smarten the old nail up. I’d seen GPz550s with bellypans, and thought ...

Product review: Tucano Urbano satchel

Tucano Urbano satchel, £59.99Time used: Three months What’s good: It’s a smart and practical shoulder bag. There are lots compartments inside and out. When you’re riding, it stays where you want it – on your back rather than under an arm – thanks to an additional strap that goes around your midriff. Off the bike it can be carried over ...

Aprilia SRV850 ridden

Super scooters have re-ignited the top speed battle between manufacturers – a battle which has been largely irrelevant for motorcycles since hyperbikes such as Suzuki's Hayabusa started cracking 180mph 13 years ago.  But with big scooters it’s just getting under way and BMW recently claimed a top speed of 175kmh (108mph) for the C600 Sport scooter. Not bad for a ...
