Posted by Robert Walker on Tuesday, September 11, 2018, In : Motorcycle Accessories 
Motorcycle covers are an often overlooked alternative to keeping your motorcycle in a garage or under larger cover. Whilst they are not as ideal due to a lack of airflow, and keeping in condensation (although this is relieved by higher quality breathable and waterproof contemporary materials) they are still great at protecting your motorcycle from the elements.



Even if you do have a garage, then fitting a motorcycle cover will protect from elements inside your garage, such as dust, dirt and in...

Motorcycle Kits

Posted by Steve King on Sunday, September 9, 2018, In : Motorcycle Accessories 
Complete motorcycle kits are just what they sound like - kits with all the parts you would need to build a motorcycle.  A few extra bits and pieces in case you lose a screw or two may also be included, but basically everything inside the box will be used to make one single vehicle - wheels, engine, drive belts and chains, frame, seat, fork, handlebars, and electrical parts, they are all in there.  The question that needs asking is, therefore, why offer motorcycles in kit form?  Isn't it bette...

Motorcycle Protective Clothing

Posted by Michael Holmes on Monday, May 14, 2018, In : Motorcycle Accessories 
There is some great looking motorcycle clothing on the market these days, but believe me not all of the motorcycle clothing offers as much protection as you think. In Europe, for motorcycle clothing to be lawfully sold as “safety clothing, it has to pass a series of European standards, which are pretty lengthy but are available on my website. The standards cover the clothing’s performance in abrasion, tearing and impact tests, and when they have passed; they are sold with the CE mark. How...
