Has the trackday touring tyre arrived?

The Battlax BT-014 was the first ‘GP-derived’ Bridgestone, its technology handed down to road bikes from the Bridgestone development team run by Erv Kanemoto in 2001 and 2002. It was hot and sticky ‘hypersport’ rubber deemed good enough in 2004 to win the MCN Tyre of the Year award. The Bridgestone T30, meanwhile, is a current sports touring tyre. It ...

Product review: Rukka Argo jacket and Argonaut trousers

Rukka Argo jacket, £799.99 and Argonaut trousers, £599.99Tester: Tim ThompsonTime tested: 1100 miles/seven months What’s good? The essence of the Argo/Argonaut combi is lightness and simplicity. Despite its showcase Gore Lockout toothless zip and Kevlar-reinforced Armacor crash panels and Gore-Tex Pro Shell laminate construction, it’s the way the Argo fits when sitting on the bike that stands out. For a ...

Product Review: Ixon Gallium Pro winter jacket

Ixon Gallium Pro winter jacket, £279.99 (discontinued, still available online for £149.99) Time tested: 16 months What’s good? The adaptable and flexible Gallium Pro is a jacket for winter but I got mine specifically for wearing over my leathers all-year round. And for this very specialist job, I’m yet to find better. Elasticated stretch panels behind the arms and elbows ...

Product Review: Arc-on Evo 2 one-piece race suit

Arc-on Evo 2 one-piece race suit £749 (£849 custom fitted) Time tested Six months What’s good? Arc-on are small, London-based specialists offering both off-the-peg and custom-fitted leathers. The tailoring service adds £100 to the price of a top-of-the-range Evo 2 one-piece suit but delivers a fit that makes it feel indisputably yours from day one. My Evo 2 strikes an ...

Product Review: Ultra Shine Wash

Ultra Shine Wash £5.99 (500ml) Time Tested: three washes What's good? Spray it on, wipe it off, grab a micocloth and give the bike a buff. There's no water or any other product involved. And to me it's a revelation. Running a black bike (MCN's long term test Suzuki GSX-R750) has been a pleasure in all areas except the cleaning. ...

Product Review: Gunson thread gauge

Gunson thread gauge, £9Time tested: 12 months What's good? I'm (still) working through an old Kawasaki KR-1S, fixing the bodges I made 20 years ago and replacing the worst of the abuse. Before I order new bolts I push the old ones through the holes of this aluminium gauge to check thread diameter, and then measure thread pitch using the ...

Parts Review: SolderBuddy Moto soldering tool

SolderBuddy Moto soldering tool, $19.95 (approx. £13)Time tested: Two months What's good? For talent-free moto-electricians like me: everything. My current project is my old race bike, a 1990 Kawasaki KR-1S. I'm going through its wiring, tidying, repairing and replacing the horrendous bodges I made when I campaigned it in the early ‘90s. Trouble is, with a soldering iron in my ...

Helmet Review: Schuberth SR1 crash helmet

Schuberth SR1 crash helmet, £529.00 (plain), £599.99 to £649.99 (colours) Time tested: 1500 miles/five weeks What's good? Day one was horrible. Ten miles and a stabbing headache behind my ears signalled an early end, but day two was better, day three a breeze and now, after a five weeks and 1500 miles, I'm relatively happy inside the SR1 and still ...
