Tested – Kriega R3

The Kriega R3 is the British company’s take on the bum bag, and as always they’ve done an excellent job.

Made from tough 1000D Cordura, the R3 is a one-stop carry-all for all your essential items – multi-tool, camera, phone, driving licence, passport, wallet etc. 106 more words

First test – Arai RX7 V

I’ve just done a 400-mile round trip to Bristol in the new Arai RX7-V in very changeable conditions, and first impressions are favourable.

The trip meant some nine hours in the saddle, and the Arai excelled throughout. 151 more words

New – Wolf Racing-K 1-pc leathers

These subtle leathers are from Wolf, the British brand that is being relaunched for2016.

Made from a mixture of cow and kangaroo leather, the Racing-K is only available in black – a very understated and stealthy look that many manufacturers seem to have moved away from in recent times. 184 more words

First thoughts – Arai RX-7V

We’ve just taken delivery of a new Arai RX-7V and first impressions are overwhelmingly positive.

Panzergrenadiers always need more half tracks to get them around the battlefield. In 1/72 scale there are plenty of options to choose from. After trying the Plastic Soldier Company fast build half track kits i wanted something that gave me a bit more of a challenge in the modelling department. 234 more words
