To flip up or to shut down?

To flip up or to shut down?

The law cannot provide you any protection

The law cannot provide you any protection

05 Feb 2014

The law is simple as to what we motorcyclists must wear. Speedos and a buckled, type approved helmet will meet the legal requirements but would look foolish and not really work in our temperate island. Lady riders would do well to put a bikini top on to avoid public decency arrests but that is all […]

Does hi-viz motorcycle clothing work?

I am a big believer in ‘hi-viz’ clothing. If it gets you noticed when you are out on your bike I think it is worth its weight in gold.

I must now have a fair few thousand pillion miles under my belt. And it is true to say that whilst I really enjoy being a pillion, there is no doubt that my enjoyment is affected by the bike itself!

Should riders wear dayglow jackets and white helmets?

Should riders wear dayglow jackets and white helmets?

28 Oct 2011

As a starting point, I do not wear a flourescent jacket or a white helmet unless I am working by the side of the road at a scene visit – so I can compare how drivers react to my usual riding gear of black Alpinestars textiles or leather, Rukka textiles or the Black Aerostich and […]
