Helmet review: Arai Tour-X3

Steve Farrell, 02 February 2012 15:02

Arai Tour-X3, £354.99 (£299 on MCN Shop; superseded by Arai Tour-X4) Miles covered/time: 3500/one year What’s good: It’s an off- and on-road lid in one.  Detach the peak and you have a normal helmet for the road. Put it back on and it’s an off-road/adventure lid with a visor. The Arai name gives you a certain confidence in the level ...

Product review: Xena XX10 Disc Lock Alarm

Steve Farrell, 20 January 2012 12:42

Xena XX10 Disc Lock Alarm, £64.99Time owned: 18 months What’s good: It’s a formidable disc lock and self-arming alarm. By means of jiggery pokery, it can tell whether or not it’s attached to a disc. When it is, the slightest movement will set off a piercing alarm. When it isn’t, it won’t. It’s a handsome gadget in stainless steel. What’s ...

Product review: Keysinthepost.com replacement ignition key

Steve Farrell, 23 November 2011 12:28

Keysinthepost.com replacement ignition key, £7.49 Miles covered/time: 500/two months What's good: An easy way to get a replacement key for motorcycles manufactured between 1970 and 2010. Just enter the number stamped on the original when making the online purchase, or upload a photo of it, and a new one will arrive by First Class post the following day for under ...

The maps are decent, easily updated via a computer and cover Europe, and the device seldom struggles for a signal. It’s got ...

BMW Junior Trike

Steve Farrell, 09 November 2011 11:20

BMW Junior Trike, £89.95 Miles covered/time: Five-ish/two months What’s good: To the fevered imagination of a three-year-old, the more realistic a toy the better, so the principal appeal to my son of his “motorbike” is probably that it looks a bit like Daddy’s. It’s obvious he finds fun in details like the engine and exhausts, which he’s always touching and ...

Shock rebuild by Brook Suspension

Steve Farrell, 09 November 2011 10:22

Shock rebuild by Brook Suspension, £185 Miles covered/time: 1000/three months What's good: It’s saved over £100 compared to getting a replacement shock for my Kawasaki KR1S. If it hadn't needed a new rod as part of the rebuild, a further £75 could have been saved. A new shock would have meant losing the damping adjuster mounted on the sub-frame, which ...

Rev'It Apache boots

Steve Farrell, 05 October 2011 11:14

Rev’It Apache boots, £164.99 Miles covered/time: 3000/six months What's good: The way they look. The Rev'It Apache boots are like a cross between motorcycle boots and trainers, with nice styling touches like suede sections. From the ankle down they’re shaped more like a shoe than your typical touring boot. They’re warm, comfortable and have so far proved completely waterproof. A ...

Abba superbike stand

Steve Farrell, 05 October 2011 10:53

Abba superbike stand, £91.99 Time owned: Six months What's good: Conventional paddocks stands won’t let you remove a shock because they lift the bike by the swingarm. This one lifts the machine by the swingarm pivot bolts instead so there’s no load on the suspension, just the frame. It’s effectively like have a centrestand that works on any bike and ...

Steve Farrell, 22 September 2011 11:49

Tucano Urbano Giacca Trip touring jacket, £164, and Motoairbag, £364Miles covered/time: 2000/two months What's good: It’s a really nice looking coat that doesn’t look out of place anywhere, with a puffa jacket-style removable lining that can be worn separately. Motorcycle jackets for sale. It’s got lots of pockets and hasn’t let through a drop in persistent heavy rain. The detachable ...

Tucano Urbano jeans

Steve Farrell, 03 August 2011 16:14

Tucano Urbano jeans, £75 Miles covered/time: 1000/one month What's good: Motorcycle jeans are often bizarrely cut and deeply unfashionable, defeating the point of wearing them by making you look stupid. These are half acceptable looking. What armour there is – at the knee – is discreet. The large hip pockets are very useful on the bike and look like they’re ...
