Bodywork repair by Kas Racepaint

Steve Farrell, 29 July 2011 13:59

Bodywork repair by Kas Racepaint, £380 Time owned: One month What's good: My KR1S fairing had a big bit missing where a corner had snapped off the top half, while the bottom half had shattered boltholes making it impossible to join the two pieces together. Kas Racepaint fabricated and painted a new corner, fixed the holes and got the whole ...

Steve Farrell, 13 July 2011 16:12

Rev’It Contra GTX Gore-Tex summer gloves, £114.99Miles covered/time: 5000/three months What's good: Submerge your hands in a sink full of water and these Rev'It gloves will not let a drop through; I know as I tested this for 20 seconds. They’re comfortable and protective, with leather palms and soft armour inserts at the knuckles. Because the Gore-Tex lining is bonded to the outer-fabric, ...

Rev It Defender GTX Gore-Tex jacket, £499.99 (£229.99 on MCN shop)Miles covered/time: Three months/5000 miles What's good: It’s practical, protective, waterproof and supremely well made.

It’s got a decent removable thermal lining, lots of waterproof outside pockets (including a ...

Ventura sport rack

Steve Farrell, 27 June 2011 16:04

Ventura sport rack, £152.97 Miles covered/time: 1000/eight months What's good: Ventura’s motorcycle luggage system consists of two brackets which bolt securely on to the sub-frame, to which a grab rail, ‘pack rack’ or smaller ‘sport rack’ can be attached. I’ve gone for the latter, which is neat enough to compliment the bike’s looks. Unlike some so-called sports racks that simply ...

Tuzo Speed leather jacket

Steve Farrell, 22 June 2011 11:19

Tuzo Speed leather jacket, £99.99 at www.mcnshop.com Miles covered/time: 500/one month What’s good: At this price, the Tuzo Speed Jacket is great value for money. It’s a tad rough around the edges under close inspection. Where some jackets have a zip and a popper fastener on the cuffs, this just has zips.  But it’s nicely styled in what feels like pretty ...

HJC RPHA-10 helmet

Steve Farrell, 17 May 2011 09:40

HJC RPHA-10 helmet, £249.99 (£229.99 on MCN shop) Steve Farrell Miles covered/time: 3000/three months What's good: For me, the best thing is the fit. I’m sure I’m not alone in having an oval-shaped head. Many helmets which initially seem to fit cause an agonising pressure point on my forehead after an hour of wearing. The HJC RPHA-10, though, fits perfectly. ...

Alpinestars Drystar ST-5 trousers

Steve Farrell, 09 May 2011 15:24

Alpinestars Drystar ST-5 trousers, £179.99 Miles covered/time: 3000/three months What's good: Like most Alpinestars stuff, they make motorcycling look good. The side pockets are useful but also lend the Alpinestars trousers a cargo-pants look. They’re comfortable, with soft, flexible armour at the knee and hip, and warm thanks to a removable thermal lining. I gave the waterproofing an extreme test ...

Product review: Weise waterproof over-trousers

Steve Farrell, 30 March 2011 13:43

Weise waterproof over-trousers, £14.99Time used: Four years What’s good: These nylon trousers have a good old-fashioned rubber coating inside (none of this breathable membrane nonsense) which is why they’re cheap and effective. Save £££s on motorcycle products They’ve kept me dry over many miles, more so than some textile trousers costing several times as much. They fold to a size ...

Product review: Oxford Bumper cable lock

Steve Farrell, 30 March 2011 12:29

Oxford Bumper cable lock, £3.99 (£3.79 on MCN shop)Time used: Six years What's good: It’s convenient and useful for low-risk applications like locking a helmet to a wheel while you pop into a shop. It will fit in the smallest nook or pocket and it’s so light you’ll forget it’s there. Save £££s on motorcycle locks In a not-particularly scientific ...

QinetiQ Ocellus S100 tracker, £299 + £2.95 per month +.20p per text Miles covered/time: 10 months/6000 miles What’s good: Your bike moves; you know about it. The device, which is about the size of a mobile phone from the nineties, can be slung under your seat, or hidden away somewhere more discreet if you like, and whenever it moves you’ll ...
