  • Shorai Lithium Battery Tested;

    There is no better and cheaper way to add a performance upgrade to your bike than a lithium battery. The weight saving is tremendous and these batteries are maintenance free. There are many manufactures of these type of batteries but the one I have experience of is the Shorai. I have one in my Sp...

  • Frogg Toggs Tested;

    Protection is an important issue when riding a bike and there are many things we need protecting against. The first priority is protection from injury and I am an ATGATT kind of a person and always wear gear with built-in armor, good boots and gloves, not forgetting a good quality helmet. Howeve...

  • Dianese TRQ-Tour Goretex Boots Tested;

    After wearing a motley selection of boots for riding, things finally came to a head when on a riding vacation and wearing a pair of poor quality boots. My feet gave up after getting soaked not just with rain but with sweat too and they turned into a puffy, soggy mess that all cracked up when they...

  • Aerostich Triple Digit Covers Tested;

    In the summer it is too hot to wear full blown waterproof gloves all the time and for me my summer gloves are a must. There are times, however, when  it will rain while out on a ride, and these triple digit covers from Aerostich are useful to have in the jacket pocket just in case. The three fin...

  • Sena 20s pt1 Installation - Tested;

    It seems customary when receiving a package these days to produce an unboxing video and post it on YouTube. I won't be imposing that on you as I assume most people can remove things from a box. The package I got contained a pair of 20s bluetooth communication units, this gives a saving over buyin...

  • Oxford Screamer Disc Lock - Tested;

    I wanted to get a disc lock with an alarm as my luggage situation precluded the bulk of my chain and lock and the alarm might give me a little peace of mind. I am aware that a disc lock with alarm would only be a deterrent and if someone was after stealing my bike they would get it no matter what...

  • Nelson Rigg CL-855 Saddlebags - Tested;

    For my week long trip into the mountains I decided I needed a new pair of saddlebags. I have smaller saddlebags that are fine for a weekend trip and a large tail pack that is good for a week long trip but there is a problem with it. The problem is that I am finding it harder as I get older to ste...

  • Sena 20s pt2 In Use - Tested;

    On previous motorcycle trips we have either ridden in silence or tried to use a cumbersome system that hooked up through FMRS radios and a bunch of cables connecting everything together. The cables made it annoying as every time you want to get on or off the bike the system's umbilical cord neede...

    The updated Latitude Misano Jacket and Pant enters the KLIM family with adventurous, comfortable riding in mind. Delivering increased mobility and lighter-weight while still providing KLIM-worthy durability, the Latitude Misano series is set to perform. For riders ready to ride in a broken-in jac...

  • Sena Wireless Remote - Tested;

    I received the Sena Wireless Handlebar remote with great excitement. I had high expectations of it as reaching my hand to the Sena 20S on my helmet, and indeed any other headset, while riding is not the easiest of things to do. I quickly removed it from the box, which also contained a USB chargin...

  • Smart Eraser Pad - Tested;

    I have a 2003 Triumph Speed Triple which has lived its life in Florida. The bike is gorgeous but had been sitting in the FL sunshine for some time, which degraded some stickers on the tank a previous owner had applied. They had become discolored and crazed so I wanted to get them off. I tried eve...

  • AX12 e-tint Visor - Tested;

    It may seem like a trivial problem but choosing a visor is an important part of planning for a day's motorcycling. Do I use my tinted visor as it is bright and sunny? Do I use my clear visor because it is dark and overcast? The answer to both of these questions is easy, just look out of the windo...

  • GoPro Hero4 Session - Tested;

    I have been a fan of GoPros from their early days and was very pleased with my Hero2, which I got for recording a bike trip in the Blue Ridge Mountains a few years ago. This replaced an old lo-res camera that no longer inspired me. The Hero2 was a revelation apart from the software and accessory ...

  • Arai Defiant - Tested;

    The Arai Defiant has been around for a while now but it is new to me and is still in current production. The helmet has a solid feel but is nice and light. It is what Arai call an "Intermediate Oval" fit and is the model Aria determined was correct for my head shape. The Defiant is designed for a...

  • Givi XS307 Tank Bag - Tested;

    I had been looking for a quick-release tank bag for a while but most of the ones I looked at were crazy expensive, and not quite what I was looking for. Then I spotted this Givi tank bag while at a bike show and it ticked all my boxes. I like the Givi TankLock quick release system as it is easy t...
