    Obviously with lots of work to do I'm on here. :rolleyes: Anyhoo, whilst away someone posed the following question to me: if you could have a superhero power, what would it be? I went for invisibility, we can probably guess why. :D:rolleyes: Which one would you pick?

    Got a tall powerbronze screen (horrible purple thing) on my RD07. Being only 5'6 i find that its too tall for good visibility, but worst i find that the wind buffets my head badly making it feel like my head's in a tumble dryer and can make me a bit nauseous. I know i could just buy a standard...

    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...

    I had this jacket recommended to me when I had to do an exchange in Hein Gericke on a previous jacket and overall I'm really pleased with it. I guess it may help to describe the type of rider I am and what I am generally looking for in a jacket. I do about 20-25 thousand miles per year and I...

    Been reading this book recently and on page 23, it says; "Remember that, even in daylight, up to a third of other road users will not even realise you are there". I think it goes up to 50 per cent at night... Sobering thought. Explains such a lot. I ride in what I think is a pretty high...

    Well I got caught in the rain yesterday and discovered my Belfstaff jacket is no longer waterproof. As it was never windproof either, I should probably be looking at getting a new jacket before I go up to the Peak District in August where it is bound to rain. Of course, I can't find quite what I...
