Book review: How your motorcycle works by Peter Henshaw

How your motorcycle works by Peter Henshaw, £9.99 What’s good: My brain absorbs pointless detail.

Granger’s G-Max Universal Footwear Proofer

Granger’s G-Max Universal Footwear Proofer, £5.99Time used: One month What’s good: Quite simply, when applied to slightly damp leather or textiles, this spray faultlessly waterproofs. Here’s how good it is: My Lewis Leathers Westway boots have taken a hosing on their uppers. Nothing got through. I’ve sprayed it on a 16-year-old pair of cracked, scuffed and generally knackered paratrooper boots ...

The joy is that none of it has flung ...
