Product Review: On the Road. Growing up in Eight Journeys – My Early Years

On the Road. Growing up in Eight Journeys – My Early Years, by Richard Hammond, £18.99Miles covered/time: Read in a week or two What's good? A humble, pleasant sort of bio, this, with a few biking references most of us will identify with and which mark the Top Gear presenter out, not just as a car nut, but a true ...

Product Review: Bagster Metro rucksack

Bagster Metro rucksack, £84.99 Miles covered/time: 500miles/4months What's good? I’m notoriously difficult to please when it comes to rucksacks. Wrong shape, wrong size, zips in the wrong place, those funny zippers that are horrible to operate, ‘harness-style’ strap systems which I personally dislike for restricting access to jacket pockets, not the right kind of pockets… all of these are reasons ...

Product Review: The Art of BMW – 90 Years of Motorcycle Excellence

The Art of BMW – 90 Years of Motorcycle Excellence, £25 Time tested: Two monthsWhat's good? The 200-odd, large format, glossy pages of decent studio quality photography of BMW’s historic models over the last nine decades, that’s what – and in this 90th anniversary year of the great German marque, what’s not to like about that? Pretty much all landmark ...

Product Review: Alpinestars Solaris textile jacket

Alpinestars Solaris textile jacket, £158 Time tested: 500 miles/3 months What’s good? The new-for-2013 Solaris is a textile, general purpose, 'sports' jacket with a more snug  fit than a full-on winter jacket and a higher waistband. I reckon it looks good and is comfy, mostly thanks to a soft, high collar and decent tailoring, on and off bike. It's practical ...

These are the first official images of MV Agusta's forthcoming new Dragster 800.

Product Review: The Triumph Bonneville Bible

The Triumph Bonneville Bible, £35 Time tested: Three months What's good? The world probably doesn’t need A N Other book on Triumph Bonnevilles, but this fell on my desk at the right time (I was researching MCN’s ‘Bonneville Special’ the other month) and is written by MCN contributor Peter Henshaw, who usually knows his stuff. An idle flick through showed ...

Product Review: Oxford Aqua50

Oxford Aqua50, £59.99Time tested: 500 miles/one month What’s good? The Aqua50 - the 50 designating its 50-litre capacity, is one of a new range of simple, 'roll-top' bags from Oxford designed to strap onto the pillion or rack via supplied compression straps. I took it to Wales and back recently over three days and it was fine: decent capacity, kept ...

Clothing Review: Triumph Engineered denim/Kevlar jeans

Triumph Engineered denim/Kevlar jeans, £159 Time tested: 500 miles/3 months What’s good? I've tried two or three types of 'riding jeans' before and these are my favourites so far. Fit (with plenty of leg length, important for riding) and quality of the denim, stitching etc is good; there are a number of nice touches (such as extra strong belt loops ...

Jacket Review: Triumph Newchurch leather jacket

Triumph Newchurch leather jacket, £310 Miles covered/time: 600 miles/two monthsWhat's good? If I knew ‘owt about fashion (which I don’t) I’d say these wax cotton-look, Belstaff/Barbour-style jackets are all the, er, ‘rage’ at the moment, as popular around Tesco as twin-shock trials. Trouble is, many are more show than go, expensive (a pukka leather Belstaff can cost a ridiculous £1200) ...
