Product review: Hein Gericke Visor Finger Wipes

Mark Holmes, 06 December 2012 16:06

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, ...

Luggage review: Bags Connection Ballistic Quick Lock Evo GS tank bag

Mark Holmes, 25 July 2012 13:36

Bags Connection Ballistic Quick Lock Evo GS tank bag, £198.20Miles covered/time: 3000/two months What’s good: This tankbag seems fairly robustly constructed. It also lives up to the ‘Quick Lock’ description in its product name, in that it is quick and easy to fix to the top of your bike’s fuel tank (in my case, the tank of a Kawasaki ZZR1400). ...

Product review: Raleri PC Fogstop visor insert

Mark Holmes, 11 May 2012 10:27

Raleri PC Fogstop visor insert, £34.99Miles covered/time: 1500 miles/three weeks What’s good: I was hoping this photochromic effort would prove to be a visor insert for all seasons – and it very nearly fulfils that brief. The photosensitive material reacts quickly in darkening to shade your eyes when exposed to sunlight and is perfectly clear for night riding. Its anti-fog ...

Product review: Beardo beanie

Mark Holmes, 01 March 2012 12:34

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 ...

Hein Gericke Blizzard Rain Pants

Mark Holmes, 09 January 2012 17:26

Hein Gericke Blizzard Rain Pants, £29.99Miles covered/time: 2000/two months What’s good: For autumn riding, I tend to go with a leather trousers/Gore-Tex jacket combo unless it’s tipping it down with rain. I find textile trousers make me slide around on the seat too much, so leather bottoms and this pair of waterproof over-trousers as a standby are my chosen solution. ...

Cold Killers Mini Tube

Mark Holmes, 05 October 2011 11:02

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 ...

Belstaff Thruxton jacket

Mark Holmes, 05 October 2011 10:43

Belstaff Thruxton jacket, £650 Miles covered/time: 4000/one year What’s good: ‘A thing of beauty is a joy forever,’ the poet said. And it’s a phrase that applies perfectly to my jacket. The quality of this gorgeous piece of clothing oozes from every stitch. Made from grained leather that strikes the perfect blend between robust thickness and superb suppleness, this jacket ...

Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa tyres

Mark Holmes, 21 February 2011 16:27

Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa tyres, £220 a pairMiles covered/time: 3500/four months What’s good: I had these tyres fitted to my long-term test KTM Duke 690 R this summer and absolutely loved them. I’m always dubious of claims like ‘the only hypersport tyre for road and track use with WSB technology’ and acronyms like EPT (Enhanced Patch Technology) but these finely-crafted ...

Arai Quantum helmet

Mark Holmes, 21 February 2011 16:00

Arai Quantum helmet, £469.99Miles covered/time: 3000/four monthsWhat’s good? I got this helmet last September, to replace my ageing Viper GT which had just about had its days after giving years of sterling service. This Quantum caught my eye – it’s designed by Aldo Drudi, the guy who does Rossi’s lids.It has the same combination of perfect fit and maximum comfort ...

Hein-Gericke Voyage GTX suit

Mark Holmes, 15 February 2011 17:29

Hein-Gericke Voyage GTX suit, £730Miles covered/time: 3000/four monthsWhat’s good: I’ve been asking a lot of this suit. I’m wearing it for my 80-mile daily commute in all conditions on my KTM Duke 690R – a bike with no wind or weather protection whatsoever. The suit has to do all the hard work to keep me dry and warm, and it’s ...
