Versatile and VFM flip-up lid
I'VE never liked wearing open-face lids - to me, the vulnerability of the nose, mouth and jaw in the event of a crash far outweigh wind-in-your-face pleasures. But full-face lids can be a hassle. You need to take them off when you pop into a shop, then if your hands are full ... Continue reading
The start of a beautiful thing
IN November of last year, we undertook to find the best pair of gloves on the market for under £100.
The Richa Cold Protect came out on top in that test, so, standing by my conclusion, I undertook to make the Cold Protect my everyday glove.
The tests we did on the ... Continue reading

It's essentially ... Continue reading
They gave as good as they got...
CONFUCIUS say, if you keep kicking the can down the road, sooner or later your toe will protest. And thus went the story of my RST Forza boots.
When I spotted them at an online store in 2008, my tight fist unclenched enough to permit me a jubilant mouse click. Smart and sporty motorcycle ... Continue reading
Alpinestars winter beaters get beaten by the hands of time
IT is with sad news that I report the passing of my Alpinestars Jet Road GTX gloves.
I’ve had them for a couple of years now and they’ve always been my go-to gloves when the weather’s looking a bit dismal. They’re warm enough (but not the best I’ve tried) and waterproof (of ... Continue reading
Whiter than white kicks
MY previous boots were a pair of Alpinestars S-MX Rs, used all year round and were pretty much faultless. Sure it would be nice to have waterproof boots when it rains, winter boots when it's cold and perforated boots come summer, but as all rounder they suited me perfectly. That is ... Continue reading
