Helmet review: Arai Chaser

Arai Chaser, £199Miles covered/time: 7000/15 months What’s good: I never thought I’d be able to give my helmet a review beyond its comfort, quality and looks (all of which I liked a lot). Then I hit a car broadside at 70mph when it turned across my path. I flew down the road and tumbled along the tarmac unconscious. I broke ...

Pass the Bike Test (and be a great rider too!), by Sean Hayes & Rupert Paul

Pass the Bike Test (and be a great rider too!), by Sean Hayes & Rupert Paul, £12.99 Miles covered/time: Three evenings  What’s good: The secret burden of every biker is the suspicion they’re not quite as good as their bike or the conditions should allow them to be. Not quite as fast, calm, consistent and death-proof as they make out. ...

Product review: Buff original

Buff Original, £13Miles covered/time: 2400/3 monthsWhat's good? The older I get the more I appreciate the tiny areas of my life I've been able to get right. This is one. My Buff bridges the chilly gap between my leathers and my lid, serves as en emergency snot-absorber, acts as a strangely comforting neck-cosy and lends me what I imagine is ...

Product review: Motrax HP Chain Lube

Motrax HP Chain Lube £11.48Time: Three months What’s good? It’s amazing how widely the ability of chain lube to annoy or assist you is – and how misleading the tins can be. I’ve been suckered into buying smart-looking tins of ceramic this and  wax that many times before – always ending with the the same moderately satisfying fizz of application, ...

Product review: Motrax Chain Cleaner

Motrax Chain Cleaner £8.98Time: Three months What’s good? I used to be scorned for my inability to maintain my chain, but the truth is I just thought chain cleaning meant breaking the chain, getting it in the kitchen sink, ruining a few washing-up brushes and hours of unthinkable labour. Had I realised all you needed was a tin of this, ...

Leathers review: Crowtree two-piece leathers

Crowtree two-piece leathers £800Miles covered/time: 20,000/7 years What's good? I crashed three times in my fully-armoured Crowtrees then left them in a barn for five years. Save cash on motorcycle leathers Then I took them out again and I've used them every day since. They're as supple, comfortable and fortress-like as I ever remember. Crowtree use nylon twice as thick ...

Product review: Triumph 675 kiddimoto

If you hadn’t heard by now, my Daytona 675 long term test bike has been well and truly destroyed (it wasn’t me). Now the only 675 in my life is a toy one. It differs in a few trifling ways from my bike (wooden monocoque, twin pipes, no brakes, £100 from Triumph’s new range of accessories), but it’s a fantastic ...

Thermals review: Marmot Original DriClime Windshirt

Marmot Original DriClime Windshirt £55Tester: Guy ProcterMiles covered/time: 2000/three months Browse thermals for sale in the MCN Shop What's good? Call me a wuss but I believe in wearing leather rather than anything synthetic for as long as possible before the cold sets in. This 'mid-layer' has bought me another month's riding in leathers at least. It's made of a thin ...

Rucksack review: Oxford Aeropack Xpert

Oxford Aeropack Xpert, £40 (£36.09 on MCN shop)Miles covered/time: 3500/6 months What’s good? For any load short of my hefty security chain and Abus padlock I favour a rucksack. This is the least-niggly, most bike-optimised one I've tried. The big, flat straps do up easily and securely in an x-shape across my chest with a single clasp, it's big enough ...

Boot review: Teknic Violator

Teknic Violator waterproof boots, £179.99Miles covered/time: 5024/eight months What's good? Still like the fact they’re discreet but don’t spare the race tech, with massive shin guard, renewable toe sliders, injection-moulded ankle and calf brace and ski-boot-style ankle binding which stops the boot coming off flailing legs in a crash. Save cash on motorcycle boots They’re waterproof but not sweaty, comfy ...
