Trouser review: Alpinestars Jet Road GTX

Best thing about it: The quilted lining and Goretex membrane have never failed and riding in the cold, wet winter weather I’ve always remained warm and dry. The pockets on the thighs are huge swallowing my purse, phone and earplugs with ease. Teaming them with the Alpinestars Stella RK5 jacket makes a perfect combination for winter riding.

Helmet review: Arai GP-5x

What’s good? The styling, the immense comfort, the sense of not looking like everyone else, and the fact that you look like you could make the transition from motorcyclist to American football just by slinging on a different shirt. This helmet was put out of commission after sustaining a sizeable knock. I wish Arai still made them. Compare and buy ...

Jacket review: Wolf Retro jacket

Best thing about it: It’s one of the best up-to-date retro-styled jackets around. It’s a trusted all-year-round jacket thanks to a thermal liner and CE armour. Armour out and I can get away with it down the pub, too. Compare and buy motorcycle jackets Worst thing about it: It’s a very short cut, and that’s part of the design. But ...
