When it comes to our cars we are often guilty of forgetting regular maintenance until the car reminds us, filling up the windscreen washer or checking your tyre pressure, the first time you realise the washer is out is when it doesn’t spray your screen, whereas the first time you realise your tyre pressure is low could be when you suffer a blowout.

The QR790S Quad is the first Quad HD dash Camera on the market. Created by Qvia, this dash cam system comes with both front and rear cameras, the front camera has Quad HD resolution (2560x1440p) whilst the rear has Full HD (1920x1080p) at 30fps. The Front camera also features a Sony STARVIS Sensor this provides a clear and sharp image in both high and low light conditions, the rear camera uses the Sony Exmor Sensor which works at a low definition but still provides good quality images.
From the makers of the Smart Turn System, an automatic indicator deactivator which prevents the rider from accidently leaving their indicator on and running the risk of causing an accident, the Brake Module has been designed with the similar ideas at its core: make motorcyclists intentions and actions more visible to other road users.
If you are going to straddle a rocket and hurtle along the tarmac, it’s probably a sensible idea to wear some protection, and yes, I mean more than a helmet and imitation leather jacket. Forcefield Body Armour are specialists in impact protection and high-performance clothing systems, so it’s a good place to start.
Motorcyclists are some of the most vulnerable people on the road and it only takes one silly mistake to put their lives at risk. That isn’t an over statement, as a close friend of mine had a very lucky escape whilst driving down a straight section of road; a car pulled right out in front of him from a junction on the left (Duke of Edinburgh style) and unknown to him, his left indicator was still ticking away from a previous manoeuvre, leading the driver of the car to believe it was safe to pull out.
The Tech 10 from Alpinestars are an innovative pair of protective Motocross boots that are packed full of features for high performance and defence when participating in this crazy sport. For over a decade the Tech 10 has been a reliable boot, but this summer the company have completely redesigned to raise the quality even further, whilst maintain the classic look. The redesign focused on the functionality, performance and safety, with the aim to reduce the overall weight as well as the material volume for a greater range of movement and flexibility.
I been riding motorbikes for as long as I can remember, and the weather must be pretty awful for me to opt for my car instead. Throughout these years of riding, I have concluded that you should always wear the best gear you can afford, as you generally get what you pay for with motorbike clothing. My current choice of clothing has boiled down to an armoured Gortex 2-piece suit and heavy adventure motorbike boots. Whilst this combination gives great protection it isn’t the most comfortable of clothing when you get off.
