‘Even my old kit is still work­ing well’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Owner Review - This is the gear Ian uses for com­mut­ing and long day trips with mates

1. Alpines­tars C10 Dry-star gloves £64.99

I’ve had these for three years and they’re re­ally wa­ter­proof. Be­ing short means I can com­fort­ably get them un­der the cuffs of my jacket. They’ve had a lot of use and are hold­ing up well.

2. Fury­gan WR-15 jacket £260

This is a good jacket with D30 soft ar­mour and it’s re­ally com­fort­able. It’s well-made but heavy with a thick ther­mal lin­ing. Re­mov­ing the lin­ing and open­ing the vents means it’s OK for sum­mer rid­ing, but it’s not my go-to jacket in hot weather.

3. Lind­strand Lux pants £260

These are six years old, but they’re still wa­ter­proof. They still look good and the braces work well.

4. Arai QV Pro £350

My Shoei GT Air was noisy and let in wa­ter. This was rec­om­mended to me as some­thing that would work with the up­right bikes I ride.

5. Sena 10S in­ter­com £290

I can hear my newly con­verted pil­lion chat­ter­ing away, clear as day, even with my earplugs in. I also pair it to my phone for mu­sic and sat­nav in­struc­tions.
