Product Review: Hein Gericke Pathan gloves

Hein Gericke Pathan gloves (superseded by Pathan Evo, £59.99) Time tested: 80,000 miles plus/6-7 years What’s good? I’ve called these gloves ‘old faithful’, as I always come back to my ‘Penguin’ gloves. They’re not attractive, but are 100% waterproof and warm. I’ve ridden all day in the worst rain possible and they’ve not even let in a drop. No gloves ...

Product Review: FastPack Tail Bag

FastPack Tail Bag, $69.99 (approx. £58.35 including import tax and shipping) Time tested: 8000 miles/ 8 months What’s good? Some of the best ideas are the simplest ones. This tail pack simply fits over the pillion seat, with two Velcro straps underneath to keep it secure - simple to fit as long as you have a removable pillion seat like ...

Jacket Review: Acerbis LED Vision jacket

Acerbis LED Vision jacket, £59.95 Time tested: Four months/3000 miles What’s good? I can’t think of a better way of been seen in the dark of dull conditions than this jacket with embedded flashing LED lights, which has white lights on the front and red on the rear. Drivers really take notice. Other road users are more aware of your ...

Product Review: Alpinestars Moab knee/shin guards

Alpinestars Moab knee/shin guards, £89.99 Time tested: 800 miles/four months What’s good? These knee/shin guards are for downhill mountain biking, but I’ve been wearing them under denim jeans when riding on the road. I like riding in normal jeans and a leather jacket, especially in summer, but hate the lack of knee protection – so these guards give a little ...

Parts Review: Motrax Tyre Warmers

Motrax tyre warmers, under £200 (in 2003)Time tested: Ten years What’s good? These well-used warmers are around 10 years old, cost less than £200 new and still work like new. What a bargain. I’ve used them at the TT, North West 200, Oliver’s Mount and countless club race meetings and they’ve never let me down once. They’re not fancy, but ...

Boot Review: Alpinestars Gore-Tex CR-4

Alpinestars Gore-Tex CR-4 £149.99 Time tested: 20,000 miles/ 6+ years What’s good? As you can tell by the state of my Alpinestars boots they’ve had a hard life, but survived some real abuse. I occasionally wear them on the bike in summer, especially if I’m riding something under 250cc like a Honda CBR125 or scooter for example, but they’ve also ...

Staff blog: The toughest test ever!

This year is going to epic, one I’m going to look back on for years to come and it’s mainly going to be down to my lovely ZX-6R. Just last week I took delivery of my new Kawasaki and unusually for me, I’m treating her with kid-gloves, nice and gentle for the first few hundred miles, before unleashing its full ...

Suzuki C1500T first ride

They may be about as relevant in the UK as a 50ft Winnebago or eight-litre SUV but, if you hadn’t cottoned on already, ‘baggers’ - or be-bagged or panniered cruisers designed for comfort and custom style and, usually, also with Plexiglass screens, a relaxed riding position and footboards instead of conventional footpegs, are big news in the U S of A. ...
