March 2017

Welcome

In among the highly desirable – but in many cases highly priced – new bikes featured in this issue, there’s a really significant product test. We didn’t pluck £600 out of thin air for our textiles test: we talked to readers, to dealers and manufacturers, and we think £600 is the sweet spot where you can get all the technology that matters without the four-digit price tag that is becoming increasingly common for high-end motorcycle clothing.

And it’s not just one suit that impressed us – many scored highly, offering a choice of good-performing gear to suit different tastes. If you’re looking for a new year-round two-piece, this test provides the benchmark. 

 

Plus, inside this issue get your FREE 2017 Tour Castle special with 35 downloadable routes. 

I hope you enjoy the issue.
