Tucano Urbano Nano Shoe Cover

Tucano Urbano Nano Shoe Cover, £33.99Time used: One yearWhat’s good: Put them over any footwear and suddenly you have waterproof boots on. Take them off again and stuff them in your pocket, folded neatly and compactly in their own zip bag. Unlike some fold-away waterproof boots, they actually have a rubber sole, which means they don’t wear out the first ...

Product Review: Bumpstop ground anchor

Bumpstop ground anchor, £49.99 Time used: Three monthsWhat’s good: It can be fitted to a wall just as easily as the ground, making the chain more difficult to attack by elevating it. The 10mm diameter bolts that secure it are impossible to reach with the chain in place. It’s relatively cheap but double-walled and tough looking. The manufacturer says the ...

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: R&G heated grips

R&G heated grips, £40 Time used: Four months What’s good: Bike manufacturers’ heated grips can cost £250. This pair is £40 and works perfectly well. The control box can be a weakness on aftermarket grips likes these. The box on the £80 Oxford Products pair these replaced was awkward to use and stopped working. But this one is easy to ...

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: R&G Superbike Cover

R&G Superbike Cover, £43 Time used: One year What’s good: It has an elasticated hem to keep it on the bike, plus holes to thread a security chain through. There are air vents to let moisture escape and a foam insert to protect your tank. It’s waterproof (as you’d expect), heat resistant and affordably priced. What’s not: It’s small. R&G ...

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 ...

Product review: BMW GS Enduro bodywarmer

BMW GS Enduro bodywarmer, £77 (discontinued)Time owned: Nine months What’s good: Wear it under a jacket while riding or on its own while not. It’s got pockets inside and out and it’s warm with a soft lining. It’s so comfy I wear it about the house and am constantly being told to take my coat off by my partner. Typically ...
