Skidmarx black flip-up screen

Skidmarx black flip-up screen, £32.95 Miles covered/time: 3000/two years What’s good: After getting my 24-year-old Kawasaki AR125 re-sprayed (don’t ask why – I don’t know the answer), the scratched dirty-brown screen was spoiling the party.I was pleasantly surprised, then, to find Skidmarx still offers standard and flip-up screens for this and a wide range of other bikes dating from the ...

Product review: Weise cotton balaclava

Weise cotton balaclava, £5.99Miles covered/time: 2000/two months What’s good: Simple, effective and cheap, this is the best way I’ve found to stop my face falling off in our recent Arctic-style winters. Some balaclavas are made from expensive newfangled materials with made-up names that end in ‘tex’. This one is nothing more than a thin layer of soft cotton, which means ...

Product review: Tucano Urbano throat collar

Tucano Urbano throat collar, £29 Time owned: Two monthsWhat’s good: Balaclavas can be itchy and irritating and are insufferable if you get the sneezes. This alternative promises protection from the wind and wet without smothering your face. It attaches to your helmet with sticky Velcro patches so you only have to put one thing on your head instead of two, ...

Tyre review: Avon Roadrider

Avon Roadrider tyres, £115 (from £52.99 per tyre on MCN Shop)Miles covered/time: 1000/nine months What’s good? Having a 1980s bike doesn’t mean having to reply on 1980s rubber. These Avon Roadriders have brought my 1986 Kawasaki GPz550 up to date and are infinitely superior to the concrete-like tyres that were on it when I bought it. Save cash on motorcycle ...

Tucano Urbano Guscio Rain Jacket, £128.90Time used: Three months What’s good? It’s lightweight, waterproof and breathable, with mesh lining and lots of inner and outer pockets, including a handy one on the sleeve with a waterproof zip.

Product review: PJB Untouchable lock and two-metre chain

PJB Untouchable lock and two-metre chain, 189.99Time used: Seven months What’s good?

Boot review: Alpinestars Web Gore-Tex

Alpinestars Web Gore-Tex boots, £159.99 (£159.95 on MCN shop)Miles covered/time: 6000/one year What’s good? Riding 80 miles a day to work through winter, I find boots are probably the single most important piece of kit. Many look the part but just aren’t warm enough when it comes to the crunch. Even the tiniest water leak is a disaster. Save cash ...

Product review: Motad exhaust system

Motad exhaust system, £296 Miles covered/time: Seven months/1000 miles What’s good? A full stainless exhaust system for under £300? What’s not to like? Motad cater for a wide range of bikes including many older models like my Kawasaki GPZ550, in sympathetic no-nonsense styling. It looks and sounds vastly better than the standard boring black system and it won’t rot. It ...

Trouser review: Tucano Urbano Panta Urbis textile trousers

Tucano Urbano Panta Urbis textile trousers, £91.90Time owned: Four months/6000 miles What’s good? They’re very easy to wear over other trousers because they have a zip and Velcro running from hip to ankle on both sides. Unlike some other textile trousers, the hip armour isn’t so thick that you look like you’re wearing a nappy. Save cash on motorcycle trousers ...

Bike chain review: Abus Granit Extreme Plus 59 1.7-metre

Abus Granit Extreme Plus 59 1.7-metre, £279.99 Time owned: Five months What’s good? I once interviewed a former prolific bike thief who, while assuring me he could defeat any chain, repeatedly and without prompting used the phrase “even an Abus Granit”. It’s the best recommendation I can imagine. In his mind, that branding appeared above all others to signal a ...
