This week in... 1989: Niall Mac in Brit GP 4th place ‘podium’ scandal

Like many rallies, the Bulldog Bash collects thousands of motorcyclists in a field where they drink beer and get merry. Unlike other rallies, though, it has a dragstrip where bikers can put words aside and face down the quarter-mile. We say: There are many reasons for the Bash’s popularity, but a lot of it boils down to the fact that it’s organised by bikers, for bikers. There are no set criteria for attendance; just have a good time.
What’s good? Latest ladies leggings feature Covec armour and Webtech liner, to give them high-abrasive protection and a low profile. There are reinforced stretch knee panels with pockets for optional extra armour, and a four-waystretch outer layer. They come in jet black, in three leg lengths. What’s not? They offer less protection than standard armoured leggings. www.oxfordproducts.com
