0 Gear review: Rukka Energator suit

There is nothing better than Rukka riding gear, in my book. I’ve had a few sets of riding gear over the years, including some top-end suits, and Rukka’s stands out as the pick of them. So I’ve gone into the testing of Rukka’s Energator adventure-riding suit with very high expectations.…

0 SJS Tyre Pump review

SJS has a great little air pump in its range that’s ideal for motorcyclists because it’s compact, tough and more than enough to inflate our tyres. The TP001 has capacity to pressurise to 80psi, weighs 300g and measures 108 x 95 x 47mm. Unlike many small pumps, it comes neatly…

0 Round Oz Ride, a father and son journey

Kog has always been a legend, I reckon. If anyone has proven that it’s the simple things that make a rich life, it’s Kog, and the first acknowledgement in this book sums it up: “For the love of motorcycling, Australia, family, friends and freedom”. That comes through crystal-clear in Round…

0 Rampless Trailer: the easiest way to move bikes

Motorcycle trailers don’t come any better than the Rampless Trailer, an Australian design that lets you load a bike at ground level, all on your own. There are no ramps because you don’t need them. It’s not unique, but it’s very clever. The concept is simple. The platform pivots from…

0 DRIVING HOLIDAYS AROUND AUSTRALIA

Driving? Yes, but in this case Lee Atkinson’s latest travel book is as good a guide for riding as it is for driving. Lee is one of Australia’s few professional travel writers and knows a good road trip when she sees it, and her Driving Holidays is a good reference book for motorcyclists keen to explore Australia. Driving…

0 HARLEY-DAVIDSON RESILIENT GLOVES

There are so many gloves on the market that it’s hard to make a bad choice when you buy a set. Often it’s the little things that make a pair stand out, and that’s where Harley’s Resilient riding gloves come into their own. Available as short gloves for warmer weather or longer gauntlets for cooler days, they’re not…

0 DRIRIDER IRIDE 2 SNEAKERS

Until I got a pair of DriRider iRide 2 sneakers, it had been a very, very long time since I’d worn less than boots on a bike, with the rare exception when I might ride a short way in fancy shoes if I had to dress up for some reason. The lack of protection felt…
