Product Review: Gear Gremlin Hurricane lock and chain

Gear Gremlin Hurricane lock and chain, £25.99 and Nimrod lock and chain £54.99 Time: Nine months What’s good? Both locks offer a good, visible deterrent. The Nimrod is a lot sturdier than the Hurricane. I used the Hurricane on the front of the bike and the Nimrod on the back. Both chains are long enough to get through the wheel ...

Product Review: Oxford Products Stormex Bike Cover

Oxford Products Stormex Bike Cover (medium), £69.99 Time tested: Nine months What’s good? The cover has a soft inner lining which is kind to the bike it’s protecting. It slides over the bike pretty easily, although it takes a couple of attempts before this becomes a two-minute job. The medium-sized cover easily fitted over the Honda CBR500R I rode this ...

Jacket Review: Furygan Titan Jacket

Furygan Titan Jacket Price: £269.99 Time tested: 4000 miles/nine months What’s good? The jacket looks good and feels comfortable. It comes with CE-approved body armour as standard although I have fitted upgraded pads in the shoulders and elbows. It was easy to do as the pockets are easily accessed via Velcro strips. The pockets are good and there’s a waterproof ...

Gloves Review: Held Sensato gloves

Held Sensato glovesPrice: £74.99Time tested: 2000 miles, six months What’s good? These are great summer gloves. The kangaroo hide leather palms are supple and comfortable while the hard plastic knuckle protection is beefy and reassuring. Although these are undoubtedly for fine weather use only, they are fairly thick and can be worn if it gets a little chilly. There’s a ...

Product Review: Ugly Fish sunglasses

Ugly Fish sunglassesPrice: £39.99Time tested: 3000 miles, three months What’s good? I wanted to wear shades when I rode Route 66 in America. I tried a few different pairs before choosing these. A lot of shades were hard to get under the open-face lid, with the arms of the sunglasses digging into the side of my face. These had short ...

Helmet Review: Davida Jet TT helmet

Davida Jet TT helmet, £265Time Tested: Three months, 2000 miles What’s good? The Davida looks good and performs well. I wanted an open-face lid for riding a Harley along 1000 miles of Route 66 followed by another 800 miles up the Pacific Coast Highway. And the Davida fitted the bill perfectly. With so many different colourschemes, I was spoilt for ...

Helmet Review: Shark Speed R

Shark Speed R, £289.99Time tested: One year/3000 miles What's good? I loved the look of the Shark Speed R from the moment I first saw it online… and knew I had to have one. I love the simple design and no-nonsense lines. I'm not one for garish colours and look-at-me styling so the Shark fitted the bill. I'm normally a ...

Gloves Review: Furygan Must IV Evo gloves

Furygan Must IV Evo gloves, £79.99Time tested: 2500 miles/nine months What’s good? These gloves are a good year-round option. In the coldest of the cold days the tips of my fingers get a little chilled and in the height of the summer hands can get a bit sweaty, but for the majority of the time they're spot-on. They offer good ...

Staff blog: Back to the CBR

It was a huge relief to return from the States and get back on the Honda CBR500R. I'd had a fantastic time riding a Harley-Davidson Electra Glide down Route 66 and up the Pacific Coast Highway. But hustling such a big bike loaded up with wife and luggage had taken its toll. On the move it was brilliant but low-speed ...

Staff Blog: Welcome back CBR500

When the first Yamaha FZR600 came out back in the day (1990) I was all over it like a rash. The black and pink paintscheme may have been a little 'let's go disco' naff but these were the days of the Carl Fogarty crazy worm leathers! After that I owned one of the early Kawasaki ZX-6Rs and loved that too. I ...
