BMW R nineT vsTriumph Thruxton R

FOR many motorcyclists, a father, mother, or family member is the reason we got into the world of motorcycles. For me, it was my dad and his BSA B40, my two uncles and their collection of classic Brit’ bikes, and my two older cousins and their love of sports bikes that lit the fire in me.

Cool Covers motorcycle seat covers

Don’t get me wrong, we’d all take a sunny day on the bike over a wet and windy one if given the choice. But even riding through the hottest sunny days can turn into an uncomfortable experience, and a sweaty backside is a one-way ticket to an uncomfortable day on the bike.

That’s where Cool Covers come in. They feature an innovative 3D design that effectively lifts the rider off the seat and allows cooling air to pass between them and the motorcycle. This cooling breeze is enough to keep you feeling fresh and comfortable.

Custom motorcycle artwork from the Respoke Collection

Now, this is seriously cool stuff! Photos are great, but custom artwork is greater-er! The good folk at the Respoke Collection will take any image of your bike – whether you are riding it or not – then create a custom image from the photo.

Once that is done it’s up to you if you have it printed on poster paper, have it framed, or printed on a cool canvas ready to hang in the man-cave.

The best part is the whole process is really easy, with you uploading your image directly onto the Respoke Collection website, selecting your print type and size, pay your dosh and off you go, your print will be before you know it.

Prices for motorcycle prints start at $60, making the images cost-effective and cool looking!

RST Casual T-shirt

As you may have seen from our YouTube reviews, I’m rather keen on my RST Race Dept T-shirt. It’s very good quality, extremely comfortable and looks great. A little too nice to wear under leathers on a hot, I prefer to save this t-shirt for later in the evening – generally when I’m sat at a bar!
