Equipment


I'm rode with a Leatt Neck Brace on this journey, supplied by UK distributor
KP Racing Services. These braces are a safety device that, in my opinion, are just about as important and a helmet.
It helps prevent hyperflexion, hyperextension, lateral hyperflexion, axial loading and posterior hypertranslation. Best of all, you're not even aware of wearing it when riding.


Llight and easy-to-wear, Forcefield Body Armour is even reusable after an impact. I ride with a Forcefield Sport-Lite L1 back protector. It's soft, light and breathable. I also wear Forcefield performance upgrade inserts which will fit in pockets sewn into my jacket's shoulders and elbows. It's great kit!


I have again entrusted my head protection to a
Cromwell Spitfire. Made in Italy, these beautiful helmets are light, comfortable and exceed the latest EU standards. Mine was supplied by Barry Vincent, who is a regular sight at major UK motorcycle shows where he sells Cromwell helmets alongside his other well-known line, Vac-Bag, which I also highly recommend.


Iíve been riding with
Halcyon goggles for 18 years; they are comfortable and allow great peripheral vision. In my opinion, the style of their split lens goggle compliments a classic bike perfectly. I usually wear MK9 goggles but for this trip I treated myself to a pair of leather MK49 Deluxe with tinted lenses as most of my riding was done in bright sunshine.
