Luggage review: Givi TW02 30-litre waterproof roll bag

Givi TW02 30-litre waterproof roll bag, £40.85 Miles covered/time: 2753/one week What’s good: It’s the first time I’ve ever used anything like this, I’d normally have a conventional tail pack. It’s basically a big, tubular, waterproof sack and it’s big enough to store my shoes, jeans, undercrackers, T-shirts, shirts, shorts, toiletries and an assortment of electrical leads and adaptors. It’s ...

Givi T470SM small tank bag, £52.50 and T460B universal ‘Tank Fitting System’ (TFS), £17.33Miles covered/time: 2753/one week What’s good: I used this on an intense week-long riding trip to Italy and France.

Product Review: Alpinestars Tech Chest Guard

Alpinestars Tech Chest Guard £44.99Time used: Six yearsWhat’s good: I’m so used to wearing a chest protector now that if I forget to use it, I go into a blind panic, especially if I’m racing. I feel as naked without it as I do without a back protector. I use it in my race leathers on-track mainly, but also in ...

Product review: Gold Label Soft Saddle Soap

Gold Label Soft Saddle Soap, £3.85 for 500gTime used: 15 years What’s good: This is the secret to my clean leathers, boots and gloves. I bought this saddle soap in a horsey shop in Canterbury in 1997, it’s lasted all this time and there’s still loads left. I run a damp sponge over my leathers first and then use a ...

Product review: Alpinestars Quick Seal Out Jacket and Pants

Alpinestars Quick Seal Out Jacket and Pants £89.99Time used: Six months What’s good: I’ve had more use out of these two-piece waterproofs than I’d like this year, thanks to all the rain we’ve had. They’re lightweight and fold away to almost nothing, so you can keep them in a rucksack or tank bag without taking up loads of room, which ...

Product review: BMW HP Race Datalogger

Designed for the track, after each session or race you just plug a memory stick into the back of the bike to download the data, then upload it on to your computer – it’s ...

Product review: EDZ neck warmer

EDZ neck warmer, £10Time used: 10 years What’s good: This is right up there as my best, most-used piece of riding kit and has been my trusty companion for the last 10 years. This exact model doesn’t exist now but the current EDZ ‘extra warm thermal neck warmer’ is the closest thing. It’s comfortable, warm and keeps the wind off ...

Jacket review: Alpinestars GP Pro

Alpinestars GP Pro leather jacket £429.99Time used: One year What’s good: This is a beautifully made and comfortable riding jacket, which is half of a two-piece racing suit. I wear this jacket with jeans generally, but sometimes use the leather bottoms for touring. It’s snug fitting and the 1.3mm full grain leather has a really nice satin finish to it, ...

Boot review: Alpinestars SMX Gore-Tex

Alpinestars SMX Gore-Tex boots (now superseded by SMX Plus Gore-Tex, £299.99)Miles covered/time: 10,000+/five years What’s good: I’ve been wearing these very durable waterproof boots for five years. I use them for my daily commute and on biking holidays. They’re warm, fully waterproof, look great and are lightweight enough to wear on a sports bike, even on track. They even have ...

Jacket review: Alpinestars waterproof over-jacket

Alpinestars waterproof over-jacket (superseded by Quick Seal Out version, £89.99)Time used: Six years What’s good: I’m not a huge fan of textile bike gear, I always find it a bit ‘frumpy’, so most of the time I either wear leathers or a leather jacket with this waterproof jacket over the top. You get the full protection of leathers and the ...
