Ducati Monster 1200: Long-term test report

I’ve been running a Ducati Monster 1200 on MCN’s fleet since March, and we’ve done plenty together in the past eight months – but it took a rideout with a colleague to realise the full effect of the big V-twin. I’ve used it for hacks around Britain, been on holiday to Italy and even taken it to Cadwell Park for ...

Product Review: Lindstrands Comet gloves

Lindstrands Comet gloves, £59 Time tested: Four months/1500 miles What’s good? They’re short gloves that are very comfortable and work well with all types of textile jackets, making it much easier to put them on and take them off for my 20-minute commute to the office. They’re also waterproof, which is useful in Britain as it seems impossible, even on ...

Product Review: Dainese D-Air street airbag vest

Dainese D-Air street airbag vest, £699.99 and sensor kit, £439.99 Time tested: Seven months/5000 miles What’s good?

Product Review: Knox Dry Inside base layer

Knox Dry Inside base layer, £39.99 Time used: Three years/3500 miles What’s good? It’s a base layer that works under leathers or textiles to stop the build-up of perspiration next to your skin. There’s nothing unusual about its ability to do that, and base layers are getting cheaper all the time, but this one is made from a mixture of ...

Product Review: Halvarssons Panzar textile jacket

Halvarssons Panzar textile jacket, £369 Time tested: Six months/5000 miles What’s good? There’s very little fault to pick with this excellent jacket, which is up with the best in terms of quality without having the expensive pricetag to match.

Product Review: ACF50 Corrosion Block grease

ACF50 Corrosion Block grease, £10 approx Time used: Two years What’s good? I am a massive fan of the way ACF50 anti-corrosion spray works to keep a British winter’s destructive power at bay, but this is the first time I have used the grease made by the same people. The grease has been primarily aimed at marine and aircraft use ...
