What does and doesn't work for us.

The Old Gits have a broad range of experience with motorcycling clothing and equipment. Here is what does and doesn't work for us.

Leathers

Manufacturer & Product Comment Old Git
BKS Leathers Expensive but absolutely superb. Thick heavy leather that gives the confidence that it would do the job if needed. David Mc
     
     

Textile Suits

Manufacturer & Product Comment Old Git
Hein Gericke Master V Jacket A nice jacket that does what it's supposed to - totally waterproof. A lot of money though. David Mc
Hein Gericke Cruise Trousers Very good trousers that are totally waterproof and zip to the rest of the Hein Gericke range of jackets. David Mc
     
     

Luggage

Manufacturer & Product Comment Old Git
Baglux tank bag and harness Quality luggage that works. There is no better tank bag on the market. David Mc
SW Motech racks For those who need to have a back box on their daily commute but don't want the usual iron work associated with the likes of Givi. These fitments are designed for your particular machine, are unobtrusive, and take an adaptor plate to enable you to attach your particular box to it. The box fits as normal and once off, the adaptor plate takes off by the half turn of the 3 quick release screws to quickly restore your pride & joy to as nature intended. Have used on a Blackbird and CBF1000. Not the cheapest, but the best. Paul H
SW Motech tank bags A variety of tank bags that do not touch the tank surface.

A bike specific fitment screws to the tank filler surround, which will accept any of the tank bags in Motech's range. Very secure in use, yet the bag comes off with a single pull of the security cord.
