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 ...

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 ...

KTM rear tailpack

Mark Holmes, 07 February 2011 17:20

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 ...

Kit review: KTM tank bag

Mark Holmes, 31 December 2010 08:00

KTM tank bag, £104.94Mark Holmes Miles covered/time: 2000/one month    Save £££ on motorcycle luggage in the MCN Shop What’s good? This bag is tailor-made for the Duke 690, so allows access to the fuel filler flap on the highly-sculpted tank. Fitting is via simple straps – one at the front that goes around the headstock, two at the rear which ...

Product review: Airhawk seat

Mark Holmes, 05 November 2010 14:27

Airhawk seat, £159Miles covered/time: 1200/one month What’s good? This is probably the most effective motorcycle product I’ve ever tested. Before fitting it, my KTM Duke test bike became a pain in the bum after 40 miles of riding. Now the world is my oyster, having completing a 900-mile tour of Normandy in a long weekend with no saddle-soreness. The Airhawk ...

Product review: Silkolene Chain Cleaner

Mark Holmes, 06 August 2010 17:18

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 ...

Product review: Swarfega Jizer

Mark Holmes, 13 April 2010 15:23

Swarfega Jizer, £4.99Time used: Three monthsWhat’s good? Completely forgot I had this until a recent garage sort-out unearthed it – and it’s proved invaluable for de-greasing my Bonneville’s engine before its reassembly. I’ve only ever used brush-on Jizer before, but with the directional spray of this aerosol version it’s really easy to get the stuff exactly where you want it. ...
