Product review: Garmin Zumo 220 satnav with Bluetooth headset

Steve Farrell, 23 November 2012 11:46

Garmin Zumo 220 satnav with Bluetooth headset, £399 Time owned: One year What’s good: Its industrial in its level of reliability and durability. Mine has bounced along the road (my own stupid fault). A plastic border around the screen came off and went back on. Otherwise it was unscathed. It's as tough as a rubber ball. It's waterproof and has ...

Product review: R&G heated grips

Steve Farrell, 25 July 2012 14:37

R&G heated grips, £40 Time used: Four months What’s good: Bike manufacturers’ heated grips can cost £250. This pair is £40 and works perfectly well. The control box can be a weakness on aftermarket grips likes these. The box on the £80 Oxford Products pair these replaced was awkward to use and stopped working. But this one is easy to ...

Bodywork repair by Kas Racepaint

Steve Farrell, 29 July 2011 13:59

Bodywork repair by Kas Racepaint, £380 Time owned: One month What's good: My KR1S fairing had a big bit missing where a corner had snapped off the top half, while the bottom half had shattered boltholes making it impossible to join the two pieces together. Kas Racepaint fabricated and painted a new corner, fixed the holes and got the whole ...

Product review: Oxford Bumper cable lock

Steve Farrell, 30 March 2011 12:29

Oxford Bumper cable lock, £3.99 (£3.79 on MCN shop)Time used: Six years What's good: It’s convenient and useful for low-risk applications like locking a helmet to a wheel while you pop into a shop.

Product review: Tucano Urbano throat collar

Steve Farrell, 26 January 2011 16:07

Tucano Urbano throat collar, £29 Time owned: Two monthsWhat’s good: Balaclavas can be itchy and irritating and are insufferable if you get the sneezes. This alternative promises protection from the wind and wet without smothering your face. It attaches to your helmet with sticky Velcro patches so you only have to put one thing on your head instead of two, ...

Jacket review: Bering Banks

Steve Farrell, 18 May 2010 14:33

Bering Banks coat, £250Mile covered: 4000/one year What’s good? It serves just as well as a smart everyday coat as it does for riding. It’s Gore-Tex, so there’s no question of water seepage. Save £££s on motorcycle jackets There’s removable armour at shoulders, elbows and back. A thermal lining is also removable, so you can use it all year – ...

Jacket review: Dainese Planet GORE-TEX

Steve Farrell, 08 April 2009 15:21

Best thing about it: Despite years of use it still doesn’t let in a drop water even in prolonged torrential rain. Surprisingly warm in winter – warmer than some full-length jackets I’ve tried -yet cool enough for summer once thermal lining is removed. Body armour and tough-feeling outer provide reassurance, though I’ve luckily never tested its crash protection. Stylishly understated. ...
