Bill needed to change tyres on his ‘childish’ Yamaha BWS. After many hours of contemplation on what to use he discovered these very cool looking Bridgestone ML-50 options.
They’re a bit like on/off-road trail tyres Bridgestone make for larger bikes. After a good clean, polish and some white lettering Bill says they look like ‘Jeep’ style all-terrain tyres. For once we tend to agree, they look awesome on a BWS.
They’re not particularly cheap for a mere ‘scooter’ tyre but Bridgestone rubber is one of the best out there, so we’ll guarantee they’ll perform.
Price: Around R2,000 a pair, but call for exact 2018 pricing.

As far as KTM protective clothing goes, for the adventure or touring rider, we really like this new outfit. It’s an official KTM product from their vast clothing range so you know it’s capable of lasting a Dakar event or two.
We have both the jacket and matching pants here made of sturdy materials with a large amount of internal armour hidden away inside. There’s also a map pocket on the left arm that you can use to hold your shopping list as you ride through your local Spar, or maybe not! They’re both well priced as well, which is nice.
Price: Defender jacket R4,152 Pants R3,320

This MX/off-road competition boot is widely known as one of the best money can buy. Many top racers around the world trust in the ultimate protection the Tech 10 offers.
It’s actually two boots in one with an inner boot and an outer shell to prevent painful and hospital inducing twisting forces, which is nice. But the most interesting thing here is this new ultra-bright black, Day-Glo yellow and pink Limited edition colour scheme, ideal for both mountain climbing adventures and a perhaps vibrant disco afterwards?
