• 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 Weise Brunel Jacket

    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.

    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.

  • Buying Second-Hand and Revealing a Car’s History

    In the market for a second-hand vehicle? It can be daunting to navigate such a large market, but when you know what to look for and how to find it you should not have too much trouble. It is vital that you are thorough with your search and are not rushed into any decisions as there are a lot of dishonest sellers out there and the vehicle may not be as advertised.

    Checking the Car Over

    Once you think you have found the right vehicle, the first thing to do will be to check it over and take it for a test drive. This will involve much more than simply kicking the tyres – fortunately, there is a lot of helpful information online to help you with this process. In addition to this, a smart move is to enlist the help of a mechanic who will be able to provide their assessment of the automobile. This ensures that it is safe to drive and will give you peace of mind.

    The History

    A lot of motorists think that this is enough to determine whether or not they should purchase the vehicle, but this is absolutely not the case. Equally important is learning the history of the vehicle – this will indicate if there are any recurring issues, how many owners it has had, how far it has travelled and if it has a hidden history (stolen, unpaid parking tickets, previously written-off, outstanding finance etc.)

    A hidden history could reveal itself further down the line and cause a major issue for the buyer. In addition to this, concealing an aspect of the vehicle’s past may allow the seller to negotiate a higher price. This is why it is absolutely essential that you carry out a vehicle history check before making a purchase on a used-car. The seller may have done this themselves, but it is always worth doing it yourself for peace of mind.

    Uncovering the History

    These checks, available from companies like cap hpi, reveal an in-depth history and everything that you need to know to make an intelligent decision. You should ensure that there are no major issues with the car’s history, and also check that this information matches what the seller advertises.

    Buying a used car can be daunting, but by knowing how to inspect a vehicle and how to reveal its history it should allow you to search with confidence and find exactly what you are looking for.
