MCN, 21 September 2012 17:01

Q. I'll be getting my first bike next week, a 2010 Kawasaki ER-6F and I'm trying to work out what kind of security mechanisms to get. The bike will be kept overnight in a locked compound (I live in a block of flats, car park accessed via RFID fob) where there's a ground anchor and plenty of big metal U-shaped ...

Anonymous, 24 August 2012 12:53

I currently own a 2010 BMW S1000RR and will need to change the tyres soon. It has the stock Conti Sport Attacks at the moment, I am not too concerned about mileage as I use the bike socially when I have the time. I would like something for fairly fast road, sometimes wet, especially this summer, and the odd track ...

Product Review: Bumpstop ground anchor

Steve Farrell, 23 August 2012 12:19

Bumpstop ground anchor, £49.99 Time used: Three monthsWhat’s good: It can be fitted to a wall just as easily as the ground, making the chain more difficult to attack by elevating it. The 10mm diameter bolts that secure it are impossible to reach with the chain in place. It’s relatively cheap but double-walled and tough looking. The manufacturer says the ...

How can I pep up my BMW R1200GS?

MCN, 30 July 2012 13:54

Q. I have an old 2004 BMW R1200GS. Recently I had a test ride on the latest model, which was a lot peppier to ride and felt much better for it. Having established that I am too weak-willed to go against my missus and spend the savings on a new bike I began wondering if I could stealthily improve my ...

Helmet review: Scorpion VX15 Air

Liam Marsden, 06 July 2012 15:49

Scorpion VX15 Air, £119.99Miles covered/time: 400/five months What's good? This is the first off-road helmet I’ve owned and so far it’s proven to be excellent. The lining wicks moisture away easily – essential for off-road riding – and the large vents keep you cool. I’ve started wearing it on the road on hot days as it does an excellent job ...

Helmet review: Shoei Neotec

Mykel Nicolaou, 16 May 2012 11:16

Shoei Neotec helmet, £469.99Time used: Two months What I like: The new Neotec had a huge reputation to live up to, as the replacement for Shoei’s hugely popular Multitec II. With an integrated sun visor and easy to use flip up mechanism coupled with an enlarged visor and multiple venting points, the Neotec is a definite step up from what ...
