0 Earmold ear plug range

Soft, generic ear plugs. I’ve been using them for a long time now, and frankly, they drive me berserk. I never seem to get a perfect seal, they pull out when I’m putting on my helmet and after a few days on the road, irritate my ears. I have persisted,…

0 DriRider Scrambler Jacket

More and more, do I find myself attracted to plainer bike gear. In fact, I’ve been known to spray paint my favourite lids flat black to hide the busy graphics. I don’t want flames drawn on my lid, nor do I want aggressive lettering thrown across my jersey. I’m not…

0 Saint Unbreakable 6 Jean review

I remember when I bought my first pair of Kevlar riding jeans. They were the new Big Thing. “Casual-looking pants with a special lining to protect you in an accident”. Okay, the latter was true, but they were like wearing a set of dacks your 100 stone uncle handed down…
