Hello and welcome to Alex’s Blog. This week I wanted to focus on bike security. We obviously sell motorcycle kit to keep you secure in the event of the worst happening, but how do you protect your bike from being stolen?
You can’t look on social media these days without reading about bike thefts and these seem to be (worryingly) increasingly common, so I want to explore the different options you have to make sure that this doesn’t happen to you – or to make it as difficult as possible for the thieves!

Hello and welcome to Alex’s Blog. This week I wanted to look in to motorcycle clothing and the sizing available. I’ve done a blog on a sizing guide for motorcycle clothing, but I thought I would add to this with a little about motorcycle clothing for those of us who are petite, tall, more rotund or Herculean.

Hello and welcome to Alex’s blog. Over the last few weeks I’ve given guides to buying boots, helmets, leathers, textiles and waterproofs which leaves gloves left to cover.
Gloves are probably the 2nd piece of protective motorcycle kit you should buy after a helmet. The likelihood is your hands will be the first or second thing to hit the ground when you come off your bike and the last thing you want is your hands hitting the road!

Hello and welcome to Alex’s Blog. This week I wanted to focus on Waterproof clothing – and by waterproof I mean clothing with a waterproof membrane. Our 30 stores have fedback that lots of customers come in asking for “Gore-Tex” clothing but then when they find out the price they then downgrade to just “waterproof” as they aren’t aware of the options – so here I am to explore the other options for you.

Hello and welcome to Alex’s Blog. This week I thought I would look at textile clothing and the pros and cons of it. We have explored which motorcycle helmet to buy and the benefits of 1 piece leather suits vs 2 pieces so now I thought we’d look at the benefits of textile motorcycle clothing vs. leather.

Hello and welcome to Alex’s Blog. Last week I looked at motorcycle leather suits so this week I wanted to focus on another piece of kit. Helmets. We have thousands in stock or every colour and variety you can shake a stick at, but which is best for you? Continue reading Motorcycle Helmets
Hello and welcome to Alex’s Blog. This week I want to highlight the differences and the benefits of leather suits – which is better 1 piece suits or 2 piece suits?
There is no question of the benefits of leather clothing on the bike – its highly durable and abrasion resistant but what is better a 1-piece or a 2-piece?

Hello and welcome to Alex’s Blog. I hope you all had a lovely Easter and are now all sufficiently full of chocolate and ready for the biking season ahead of us. As the weather is getting nicer a lot of bikers are dusting off their bikes and their kit and starting to get out on the roads again. (I’m not going to pretend that every one of you is an all-season biker – I fully realise that a lot of you are fair-weather bikers)
