Product Review: Rizoma Proguard lever protectors

Rizoma Proguard lever protectors, £85 Time used: Two months What’s good? These are designed to protect front brake and clutch levers from being jammed on when bikes and riders collide in racing. On the brake side, they’re compulsory in national and world championship road racing, but they’re a good idea for club racing and trackdays as the risks are just ...

Product Review: Oxford Track Pump with gauge

Oxford Track Pump with gauge, £29.99 Time used: Four race meetings. What’s good? With my twin-cylinder Sealey foot pump breaking on me after just a year (letting air out of the tyre when you connect it), I decided to give this upright track pump a go. It’s more expensive than a conventional foot pump, but it’s easier to use, you ...

Product Review: Astars Fastlane Waterproof shoes

Astars Fastlane Waterproof shoes, £119.99 Time used: Seven months What’s good? These riding shoes are my new favourite piece of biking kit and I haven’t worn conventional bike boots since I’ve had them, apart from when I’m in leathers. They suit the ‘jeans and jacket’ riding kit I wear while pottering about on my BMW S1000R long-term test bike. They’re ...

Product Review: Draper Expert 4 Drawer Tool Chest

Draper Expert 4 Drawer Tool Chest: £199.98 Time used: Six months What’s good? There’s lots of nice attention to detail on this four-drawer lockable steel toolbox, which travels around the country with me at race weekends. Sturdy, soft-gripped handles make lifting easy, the lid opens via hydraulic rams, so the action is satisfyingly smooth, and the large foam-lined drawers slide ...

Product Review: Casey Stoner, Pushing the Limits

Casey Stoner, Pushing the Limits, £9.99 Time used: One week What’s good? From his domination of Aussie flat track to MotoGP, Casey Stoner’s autobiography is fascinating. His hero growing up was Mick Doohan and you get the feeling he’d rather GP bikes had remained 500cc two-strokes. He might have retired at just 27, but you quickly realise he’s done his ...

Product Review: Marks & Spencer thermal long pants

Marks & Spencer thermal long pants, £14-£35 Time used: Over 20 years What’s good? I can’t remember exactly when I bought these, but I know they’re from M&S and I got them in my late teens to wear on skiing holidays. They’re so old that the words have worn off the label, so I don’t even know what they’re made ...

Stan Stephens: The Mechanic Who Got Lucky, £19 Time used: 338 pages in three sittings What’s good? Growing up riding and racing in the late 80s, Stan Stephens was the man who tuned the fastest engines and was as much a racing hero to me as Schwantz and Rainey.
