Staff Blog: Are Harley's cool?

A couple of years ago I asked an MCN work experience girl what she thought of motorcyclists. I was hoping she’d use words like ‘cool’, ‘exciting’, perhaps even ‘sexy’ but instead she said, “They’re all old blokes... you think they could be a bit of alright and then they take their helmets off... and they’re all my dad’s age.” She ...

Staff bikes: Triumph Tiger 800 - Tiger hits Spain

After being enthralled by the round-the-world tales in our free Adventure supplement a couple of weeks ago I was inspired to do something similar on the Tiger 800. The journey needed to be epic and daring, the destination exotic and unusual. One night over dinner all options were examined with my partner and pillion, Nicola. Would it be the Road ...

Dainese Torque In boots

Dainese Torque In boots, £194.99 (now replaced by St Trq Race In £189.99) Miles covered/time: 10,000/18 months What's good: When I first reviewed these boots after six months use I wasn't exactly enamoured with them. The Dainese Torque In boot lacks frills with rear entry, titanium sliders and plastic ankle brace. At £194.99 they were expensive, too. But I've grown ...

Staying safe in spring showers

Even if you're a committed fair weather rider the chances of being caught out in a heavy rain shower at this time of year are high. If you're not used to or are not prepared for riding in wet weather a sunny Sunday blast can quickly turn into a bum clenching nightmare. But it doesn't have to be like that. ...

The best body armour is between your ears

While there are obvious benefits of the safety equipment we use to protect ourselves from injury, such as helmets, leathers, body amour, boots and gloves, they’re of little use if you’re unlucky enough to hit something bigger than you. Crash into a car or road furniture at even relatively low speeds and you’re likely to suffer broken bones at best. ...

It fits me well and there ...
