Staff bikes: BMW K1600GT - Turning up the volume

I recently picked up the first pair of Remus Hexacone slip on silencers in the country ( to go on the BMW K1600GT and decided it might be fun to time just how long it takes the remove the old and fit the new.

Staff bikes: BMW K1600GT SE - Rain? What rain?

At long last the real British summer is upon us, and I finally get to ride the BMW K1600GT in the wet. Since I took delivery of the bike, it literally has not rained, or when it has I have been tethered to my desk in the MCN office. I have played with the fly-by-wire throttle settings (dynamic, road and ...

Product review: Hein Gericke Tripmaster TFL Cool jacket and trousers

Hein Gericke Tripmaster TFL Cool jacket (£279.99) and trousers (£229.99)Miles covered/time: 1500/four months What’s good: The moment I put these two-piece motorcycle leathers on they felt good, not too much armour so you feel completely trussed up, but enough to make you feel safe, all CE-certified SaS-Tec protectors inserted in all the right places (shoulders, elbows, back and knees), with built-in pockets for ...

Boots review: Alpinestar Roger Decoster boots

Alpinestar Roger Decoster boots(Superseded long ago. Modern equivalent Alpinestar Tech 8, £329.99) Miles covered/time: 50,000+/30 years What’s good? I don’t think there are many boots still in use that could boast 30 years of use and still not only be wearable, but also waterproof. These boots were the ultimate biker ‘must have’ when I was cutting my teeth in the ...

Product review: Acumen AcuTrac

Acumen AcuTrac, from £349.99Miles covered/time: 1500/three months What’s good? The tracker unit itself is small and discreet, so it’s fairly easy to secrete on your bike (we’ve not photographed the unit here, so thieves won’t know what to look for). Fitting can be done simply and easily, and takes around half an hour. The moment the power is connected a ...

Kit review: Aerostich Darien fleece liner

Aerostich Darien fleece liner, $187 (£118)Miles covered/time: 3500/15 monthsWhat’s good? Most jacket linings are exactly that – linings, not something you could wear on its own. The (deep breath) Darien TKLTec Wind Blocker Fleece Liner is cleverly designed and well thought out. If the weather is too warm to wear it during the day, it folds very neatly into a ...

Boot review: Sidi Canyon Gore

Sidi Canyon Gore, £164.99Miles covered/time: 2500/one month What’s good? I have lived in these boots for the last two and a half weeks, you know the moment you put something on and it immediately feels comfortable, well that was my experience with the Canyon Gore.
