X-Lite 802RR Ultra Carbon helmet

When Grant Sammut from Ron Angel Wholesale called to say the new Italian-made X-Lite 802RR Ultra Carbon helmet was in stock, he claimed people had fainted after simply laying eyes on it, such is its beauty. When mine arrived just in time for the recent BMW launch in Tasmania, I

TCX Track Evo WP Boots

These comfortable off-road kicks just arrived and have already had a thorough drenching to test their waterproof claims. Their rugged soles have a deep tread for pushing through the rough stuff, as well as a steel shank to protect your delicate hooves from the wrath of obese ad

The Arlen Ness Anarchy Hood Jacket is the coolest looking bit of motorcycle clothing I have in my wardrobe. As well as having a stylish cut, it features a fleece liner with a hoodie that flaps in the breeze while you ride, and keeps your head warm when you’re not – genius! T
