• Classic Look for the Weise Brunel Leather Motorcycle Jacket

    No matter what changes, there are some constants in motorcycling. And one of those is the need for a decent leather jacket with works when you’re riding – and in the pub. The new Weise Brunel leather motorcycle jacket seems to offer a decent attempt at both jobs for a reasonable £239.99.

    The full-grain cowhide has been waxed to resist moisture and dry more quickly than untreated leather. Which will be handy if you’re caught in the rain. Or someone spills their pint on you.

    And it’s been designed and cut in a retro style, with leather overlay on the shoulders and elbows. The cuffs feature zip-fastening and there are adjustable tabs at the bottom of the jacket, secured by poppers. There’s also an 8-inch connecting zip for Weise trousers. And the only Weise branding is pretty subtle on the front of the jacket.

    The classic look does contain modern protection. The Brunel has level 2 CE-approved protectors at the shoulders and elbows, and comes complete with a CE-approved Level 1 back protector. And by using flexible Elastofoam, the armour is low profile and curves to fit in a comfortable way. Although that might mean it’s less effective for elbowing the crowds aside when last orders has been called.

    The Weise Brunel leather motorcycle jacket features the traditional three pockets on the outside. And also zipped internal pockets. The colours available are the Black/Cream, Black/Orange and Black/Red.

    Sizes are from 40″ to 50″ chests. We’ll presume that’s blokes only for the time being. And all the Weise range is covered by a two-year no-quibble warranty, which is pretty decent. If you want something to get you through the rare summer months in reasonable style the Weise Brunel leather motorcycle jacket seems worth considering. And it’s decent enough value at £239.99. Which should leave you some cash for petrol and non-alcholic refreshment.

  • New Weise W-Tex Touring Jacket Comes With Over-Trousers

    Ever had to peel off soggy jeans after a rainstorm? It was dry and sunny when you left. But then the rain came and now you’re wearing soaked denim leggings. And your legs have turned blue from a combination of the cold and colours running. Well, the new Weise W-Tex Touring Jacket comes with over-trousers in a large rear pocket to prevent that happening again.

    The over-trousers aren’t going to get you through a track day. But they will keep you snug and dry if you get caught out by a shower. So while Weise may call it a touring jacket, we’d say it’s as good for short trips and commuting, without having to carry a backpack full of spare kit. Especially when armoured jeans have become more and more popular.

    The W-Tex trousers have a full polyester lining, with an elasticated waist and Velcro ankle pull tabs. So they’re easy to wear and should be comfortable.

    The Weise W-Tex waterproof jeans come with the Weise W-Tex Touring Jacket

    The Weise W-Tex Touring Jacket itself is your standard all-weather motorcycle jacket. It has a waterproof and breathable drop liner, plus a full-length popper and Velcro storm flap over a YKK zip to keep your top half dry.

    There’s a removable 120-gram thermal quilted liner to cope with changing temperatures. And large two-way zipped vents at the cuffs, shoulders and on the back to let cool air in when you need it.

    The shell of the Weise W-Tex Touring Jacket is made from tough 600 denier material. And there’s removable Knox Micro-Lock CE-approved armour at the shoulders, elbows and back.

  • Lexus Success Story

    The Reasons for Lexus’ Growing Success and Popularity

    In recent times, Lexus has become Japan’s largest-selling make of premium cars and established themselves as pioneers in the luxury car sector. The luxury vehicle division of Toyota was first developed in the early 1980’s as a secret project to build the world’s best car, but they are now one of the most recognisable and successful automobile manufacturers around.

    In fact, Lexus led the U.S luxury car market for an impressive 11 straight years before a Tsunami and an earthquake hit production in 2011. After falling behind Mercedes-Benz and BMW, they now are clawing their way back and recently posted a global sales record in 2016 and their fourth consecutive record year of sales.

    Reasons for Success

    So, what can be attributed to this success? One of the main reasons is that they have managed to find great success in the United States – a major consumer in the luxury car market. Lexus has always struggled to replicate this success in Europe, largely due to the fact that the European market as not as receptive to “new” brands as other areas of the world.

    Another key reason is the fact that their vehicles are known to be extremely reliable, solid and well-engineered – this makes them a great choice for long-term ownership, which is an important factor for consumers when purchasing high-end automobiles. This also makes them the logical and intelligent purchase to make for any motorists in the market for this kind of vehicle, with specialist suppliers like RRG Group being the best place to turn.

    Hybrid Technology

    Lexus has also manufactured a handful of hybrid vehicles in recent years. This has made them more popular throughout the world as there is a shift in attitude towards eco-friendly driving, but particularly in Europe where they have previously struggled to sell. This is not too much of a surprise, as their parent company Toyota are famed for being world leaders in hybrid technology. As a result, hybrid Lexus cars combine the strengths of petrol engines with all the benefits of electric power.

    This success for the Japanese manufacturer only looks set to continue, as they are growing in popularity around the world whilst also maintaining their image in the United States. Essentially, their success can be attributed to their core values being inline with that of a modern day consumer. They are a brand about innovation, reliability, technology and eco-friendly motoring whilst also maintaining a luxury performance and sleek design.
