  4. Aerostich Roadcrafter one piece suit

    Product Reviews
    I've had my suit for over a year now and am well pleased with it. The advantage of it over conventional gear is that it can be worn over whatever you're wearing. If you want to go for a run no need to change just put your boots on and step into the suit. It's made out of goretex lined heavy...

    Chatter
    Do the purveyors of motorcycles and their associated accessories still feel it is necessary to parade half naked women on their stands and have them wandering about giving out leaflets? We now live in the 21st Century, where there are a large number of women within the biking fraternity, who...

    Chatter
    Riding down to Kent this morning down the usual A14/M11/M25, with the usual queues of virtually stationary traffic, I found myself filtering between 2 lanes of solid traffic following another Biker riding a Bandit… Being only 2 lanes wide, there were points where the HGV’s were parallel to...
