Can you stand all this goodness in one place without buying something?
This new Micro-Dash from Translogic would look smart on nearly any bike you fitted one too. It’s pretty handy for racing and trackdays, too! It has an LCD display, with various info-options; such as temperature and speed available, and a ‘bar’ tacho. It also features shift-lights, a 100-lap memory and even a low-fuel indicator.
TECHTRONICS YAMAHA THROTTLE-BLIPPER
Only one production bike comes fitted with a proprietary throttle-blipper in 2013, which is MV Agusta’s new F4. However, if you have a ride-by-wire Yamaha R1 or R6, just £245 squids can see you join one exclusive club. Best of all, it works well, and sounds awesome when your kicking down the gears to a rapid ‘braap!’. Essential, just because it is.

They make several different types, but this is a double-bubble jobbie pictured. They cater for most bikes, even ones going back a few decades, and the build-quality is superb.

RST PRO CPX-C
The RST CPX-C is made from up to 1.3mm premium-grade, full-grain and drum-dyed Brazilian moo moo hide. It utilizes YKK zips, an Airtex lining and perforated panels for hot weather.

The Serket-Taper-Carbon, to give its full name, is one of the best cans Scorpion has ever made. Just look at it; it’s modern and beautifully sculpted, yet won’t break the bank. There is a non-taper ‘parallel’ version if you prefer yours more traditional, and of course it comes in various materials, such as stainless steel (£299), titanium and carbon-fibre. Very, very nice indeed.
SAMCO GIXER HOSES
There are many good reasons for buying decent aftermarket hoses, such as these Samco items for K9 GSX-R1000s and onwards. Of course, you get a far better built item for starters, which is great, but otherwise the main reason we like them is because if you’re smart with your colour choice, they can make a bike look even cooler. Cooler... geddit?
