Glove Review: Halvarsson Dryway

Alison Silcox, 31 October 2012 12:08

Halvarsson Dryway Gloves (superseded by Waler, £74.99) Miles covered/owned: 10,000/three years What’s good: I’ve never been a fan of winter gloves as they can tend to be bulky and limit movement but that’s not the case with these. They fit well and the adjusters on the cuffs and at the wrist make them snug enough to fit under the sleeve ...

Glove review: Alpinestars GP Pro

Richard Newland, 24 October 2012 10:31

Alpinestars GP Pro gloves, £229.95
Miles covered/time: 5500/three months What's good? I absolutely love these gloves. This is my second set, and the previous ones lasted me for the best part of 40,000 miles. They didn’t look too pretty by then, and had a slightly dubious whiff about them, but they were still going strong, with just one unraveling seam in ...

How to secure your new bike

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 ...

Best tyres for a BMW S1000RR?

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 ...

Why is my ZX-6R’s front end juddering under braking?

MCN, 15 June 2012 11:06

Q. When I brake at slow speed on my Kawasaki ZX-6R J2 track bike it feels as if the brakes are only working intermittently and at higher speeds the front shudders a lot. The brake pads are new, the brake fluid is fine with no air and the Galfer discs have done around 4000 miles in the last four years.Luciano, ...
