Jacket Review: Harley Davidson #1 Vintage leather jacket

Harley Davidson #1 Vintage leather jacket £404.72Time tested: 2000 miles/4 months What’s good? The #1 Vintage is a jacket that has quickly found it’s way into my top ten all-time favorite bits of riding kit alongside my Ruby lid and Belstaff Trialmaster. With subtle branding and faultless construction it’s ideal for summer cruising or wearing down the pub. From Harley’s ...

Bags Connection Baracuda 30 litre rucksack, £108.36Time tested: 400 miles/two months What’s good? Sublime build quality with thick, lined nylon, 100% waterproof (even the zipped external pocket) and supremely comfortable while riding. A large, padded internal laptop pocket and two mesh dividers (one zipped) keep small items separate. Subtle reflective panels and large looped zip pull are nice touches. It ...

Boots Review: Harley Davidson Darnel boots

Harley Davidson Darnel boots £119.90Time tested: 600 miles/two months What’s good? The older I get (46 last week) the less willing I am to faff about with overcomplicated motorcycle kit. In my view, spending 15 minutes getting ready is 15 minutes less time on the bike. At first glance the Harley Darnel’s appear to be standard seven hole boots but ...

Book Review: How to Build A Cafe Racer

How to Build A Cafe Racer £20Time tested: one month What’s good? Whether you were around at the time of the original ton-up boys, or have been hypnotised by one of the many hundreds of achingly cool (some might say pretentious) blogs and websites, it seems we can’t get enough of cafe racers at the moment. So if you’ve got ...

Tool Review: King Dick 3/8in drive 17-piece socket set

King Dick 3/8in drive 17-piece socket set (equivalent modern 15-piece set £152.87) Tester: Ped Baker Time tested: 10 years What’s good: When it comes to hand tools, I follow two simple rules – buy the best I can afford and if possible, buy British. These days the second rule is sadly much tougher than the first but King Dick is ...

Product Review: TCX X-Street Sneaker boots

TCX X-Street Sneaker boots, £79.99Miles covered/time: 986/two monthsWhat’s good: The Street Sneakers look like normal Converse-style boots but feature a slightly thicker denim material, hard ankle armour and brushed leather on the toes and heel. The boots are all-day comfortable and despite the stiff-ish sole and ankle armour, walking isn’t hampered in any way. Each pair is hand ‘distressed’ so ...

The heat emanates from several large flexible panels sandwiched between a Nylon outer material and an Airtex style ...

Product review: Tucano Urbano 323 bar muffs

Tucano Urbano 323 bar muffs £54.99Miles covered/time: 500/one month What’s good: The 323s are (fake) fur-lined, waterproof and very warm. Perfect for winter commutes, they make sub-zero biking bearable. Elasticated gators around mirror stalks stop icy draughts. Attaching them takes minutes and as they fix onto your bar ends they're stable and stiff enough to prevent being pushed onto levers. ...
