On the Road. Growing up in Eight Journeys – My Early Years, by Richard Hammond, £18.99Miles covered/time: Read in a week or two What's good?

Product Review: Bagster Metro rucksack

Phil West, 18 February 2014 11:30

Bagster Metro rucksack, £84.99 Miles covered/time: 500miles/4months What's good? I’m notoriously difficult to please when it comes to rucksacks. Wrong shape, wrong size, zips in the wrong place, those funny zippers that are horrible to operate, ‘harness-style’ strap systems which I personally dislike for restricting access to jacket pockets, not the right kind of pockets… all of these are reasons ...

Product Review: The Art of BMW – 90 Years of Motorcycle Excellence

Phil West, 11 February 2014 11:30

The Art of BMW – 90 Years of Motorcycle Excellence, £25 Time tested: Two monthsWhat's good? The 200-odd, large format, glossy pages of decent studio quality photography of BMW’s historic models over the last nine decades, that’s what – and in this 90th anniversary year of the great German marque, what’s not to like about that? Pretty much all landmark ...

Product Review: The Triumph Bonneville Bible

Phil West, 02 December 2013 16:00

The Triumph Bonneville Bible, £35 Time tested: Three months What's good? The world probably doesn’t need A N Other book on Triumph Bonnevilles, but this fell on my desk at the right time (I was researching MCN’s ‘Bonneville Special’ the other month) and is written by MCN contributor Peter Henshaw, who usually knows his stuff. An idle flick through showed ...

Product Review: Oxford Aqua50

Phil West, 07 October 2013 12:30

Oxford Aqua50, £59.99Time tested: 500 miles/one month What’s good? The Aqua50 - the 50 designating its 50-litre capacity, is one of a new range of simple, 'roll-top' bags from Oxford designed to strap onto the pillion or rack via supplied compression straps. I took it to Wales and back recently over three days and it was fine: decent capacity, kept ...

Book Review: That Near-Death Thing, by Rick Broadbent

Phil West, 13 May 2013 08:44

That Near-Death Thing, by Rick Broadbent, £16.99 Tester: Phil West What’s good? The most compelling book about the TT I’ve yet come across. Written by Times sports writer Rick Broadbent, it paints a vivid picture of the highs and lows of the 2011 TT through the first-hand accounts of Guy Martin, John McGuinness, Conor Cummins and Michael Dunlop. Broadbent’s success ...

Ghost Towns of Route 66 book

Phil West, 30 August 2011 13:34

Ghost Towns of Route 66, £16.99 What's good: Not, strictly speaking, a bike book, but still very pick-up and flick-able and engaging enough to while away a good few hours with the fantasy most of us share of exploring the 'Mother Road' by Harley. This mostly picture-lead tome traverses the old Route 66 from Chicago to Los Angeles which was ...

Phil West, 10 August 2010 16:37

Arai helmet holdall, £39.99Time used: four years What’s good? Almost everything. Simple rugged nylon construction (in either unlined, like mine – at £39.99, or fur-lined at £49.99), classic styling; necessarily snug fit; comfy handle and there’s even a small pocket for ear plugs. Save cash on motorcycle products Until I find otherwise, I reckon it’s the perfect way to store ...

Phil West, 28 May 2010 14:59

Sartso ‘Dark Grey’ Killer Kevlar jeans, £124.95Miles covered/time: 400/one month What’s good? The simple fact that these are decent, every day usable jeans that I can wear both on and off bike with peace of mind. Save £££s on motorcycle trousers Why? ‘Cos on-bike I’m reasonably protected thanks to the extensive Kevlar panels in the upper section plus pockets for ...
