Product review: Hein Gericke Visor Finger Wipes

Hein Gericke Visor Finger Wipes, £3.99Miles covered/time: 2000 miles/two months       What’s good? Before I answer that question, let me ask you another one: what’s the biggest benefit to safety when you’re riding a motorbike? No, it’s not ABS, traction control or any other trendy electronic gimmick. It’s visibility. Simply being able to see where you’re going. And to that end, ...

Product review: Beardo beanie

Beardo beanie, £24.99Time used: Two months What’s good? This is a real breakthrough – the world’s first beanie hat with integrated, adjustable and removable prosthetic beard. I tested this practical addition to any amateur motorcycle mechanic’s armoury of tools during a recent spell of Arctic weather, while working on my old Bonneville in a feeezing garage. OK, regular woollen hats ...

Cold Killers Mini Tube

Cold Killers Mini Tube, £16.99 Miles covered/time: 480/two weeks What’s good: I got hold of mini tube neckwarmer this because of the imminent change in the weather, to help insulate my draughty lid against the cold winds of autumn/winter. The idea was to use it with my Arai Quantum, but the proximity of the chin bar to the nose/mouth area pressed ...

Staff bikes: Victory Cross Country - Friday on my mind

Friday night at the Ace Cafe seemed like a great antidote to enduring a week without the Victory. Hinckley dealer Windy Corner had discovered a stone wedged in the drive belt while changing the tyres after the bike suffered a puncture. It had lacerated the Kevlar-reinforced belt badly enough to need replacement at £250 for the belt and £90 to ...

Flat out at 50: Jerez MotoGP

Spain is the spiritual home of MotoGP and Jerez is traditionally the first Spanish race of the season. I’d never been there, so it seemed a great way to kick off my year of new biking experiences. A quote from Jorge Lorenzo that I’d read, about Jerez being one of the few tracks where the riders can hear the crowd, ...

Flat out at 50: Ferry tips for bikers

Having taken the Santander ferry to go to the Jerez MotoGP, here are Mark Holmes' ferry tips for bikers: 1. Check your sailing details to see how early you have to check in at the port. You don’t want to be late and miss the boat – especially as Santander ferry sailings are often days apart! 2. If you don’t ...

KTM rear tailpack

KTM rear tailpack, £107.17Miles covered/time: 2500/four monthsWhat’s good: This seemed like a great idea as an alternative to a drag-inducing, shoulder-straining rucksack – a tail pack that pops easily onto a bracket on the tailpiece of my KTM Duke 690R.It looks good, it’s big enough to take my lunchpack, spare visor and gloves during everyday commuting duties (and can be ...

Trouser review: Held Spark leather trousers

Held Spark leather trousers, £150.20Miles covered/time: 3000/five monthsWhat’s good? I wanted a pair of good quality, kneeslider-free leather trousers – and these looked just the job. In thick but supple cowhide, with stretch leather around the knees and on the calves, they felt immediately comfortable and needed no ‘breaking in’. Save £££s on motorcycle trousers The Knox CE-approved armour on ...

Product review: Silkolene Chain Cleaner

Silkolene Chain Cleaner, £8.49Time used: Two years What’s good? Cleaning and maintaining your drive chain is a filthy, thankless task – and tends to be one that tends to get pushed a long way down the list of priorities when spare time is at a premium. I try to be good to my chain, but there have been a couple ...
