Re: Oxford HotGrips.....any good..?

I use Oxford adventure grips on my S10 and they are great. It's about the 3rd set ive fitted over the year. The latest version come with an intelligent controller that connects straight to the battery and switches them off when it detects the bike isn't running.

Re: Heated waistcoat

Bought a cheap battery powered one for my father in law for him to wear in his shed, it was rubbish, barely got warm.

I wear a Gerbing jacket, its really worth the money.

Re: Air Compressor Advice please...

I managed a Machine Mart store for years and their range of air compressors are very reliable and decent value. For general cleaning and small painting jobs a 50L 2.5hp 9.5cfm compressor will do. If you want to run any air tool you will need 3hp 14cfm and as big a tank as your budget will allow. Th...

Re: Torque Wrench

I use a 1/4in drive which covers 5 to 25nm and a 1/2in drive which covers 28 to 210nm. I use Clarke ones and they work a treat.

Re: Tiger 1050 vs crosstourer 1200 vs v Strom

Another happy S10 owner, really good value for money, the Gen2 (2014 on) is the way to go if the budget will stretch. Take one for a long test ride though, at first they seem a bit average but they really grow on you. Ultra reliable too.

Re: Heated Waistcoats, but not 12V

Bought one for my father in law, it works a treat, as per all of the reviews the sizes are miles off, I wear a large and a 3xl just fits but it works. I bought a £35 jump start that powers it really well and can be used to start his car if needed.
