Luggage systems – Navigation – Ergonomics – Protection
German motorcycle engineers SW-MOTECH have developed a range of accessories for the 2013-model BMW R1200GS, including luggage systems, GPS mounts, crash bars and a footrest kit.
Their Quick-Lock Evo side carriers are compatible with all popular brands of hard luggage and it’s not only the luggage that can be mounted/dismounted within seconds, but the carriers also! A pair of side carriers sells for £207.73 (including VAT) and prices for Trax aluminium cases start at £242.30 each.
SW-Motech model specific Quick Lock GPS Mounts connect to standard handlebar mounts for a neat and simple fit. Using SW-Motech’s Quick Lock system they offer ultra fast attachment and detachment of sat nav devices. The R1200GS GPS mount costs £50.38.
Manufactured from 27mm tubing, the engine crash bars are powder coated for a durable finish and are designed so that the valve cover can be removed with the bars fitted. Available in silver or black, engine bars sell for £180.62 and matching upper bars cost £162.56.
Suitable for both off-road and touring, SW-Motech footrest kits offer two different positions (original and 15 mm lower). Made from corrosion resistant cast stainless steel with removable rubber pad, they combine a large contact area with an anti-slip profiled surface.
Sdoc100′s new Motorcycle Apparel Cleaning Kit contains everything necessary to freshen up riding kit before the season kicks off this spring. This specially created pack from Germany’s favourite motorcycle cleaning brand includes Technical Fabric & Leather Wash, Textile Proofer and Visor and Helmet Cleaner – ideal for breathing new life into well used bike wear and far less costly than replacing it with new gear.
Specially formulated to work at low temperatures, the Technical Wash not only cleans both leather and textiles but also helps to maintain the breathability of technical membranes, by clearing blockages from the micro pores.
Once cleaned, garments can be treated with the Textile Proofer. Quick and easy to apply, it does what it says on the tin; helping to re-proof fabrics (including leather) that have lost their water resistance. In addition to clothing, boots and gloves it can be used on soft luggage, backpacks, etc.
SDoc100′s kit also includes a bottle of Visor and Helmet Cleaner. Formulated to deliver scratch- and streak-free cleaning, it is suitable for all types of visor, simply spray on the fluid and then wipe it away with the microfibre cloth provided.
Completing the kit, which is supplied in a draw-string bag, is a Visor and Helmet Wipe that can be carried in a pocket for cleaning while out and about. The complete kit retails at £34.99 (including VAT), details can be found at www.sdoc100.co.uk.
BAGS CONNECTION have updated their QUICK-LOCK Tank Bag system for 2013. The second generation of the innovative German design features an updated tank ring, that attaches to the fuel filler cap, and a redesigned collection of tank bags that clip into the rings.
Not only will the QL tank ring system work on either metal or plastic tanks, but because the bags don’t touch the bike’s bodywork it reduces the risk of scratches and scuffs caused by traditional tank bags.
New EVO tank rings have a slimmer design, so that the EVO tank bags sit closer to the tank, and an improved four-point mounting, so the bags can be clipped on effortlessly in seconds. Now produced in a cool black finish, EVO Tank Rings are available to fit all popular modern makes of motorcycle.
Prices for the EVO Tank Bags start at £68- for the 5-litre Micro, which is ideal for carrying essential items such as keys, mobile, camera or documents. For riders requiring extra capacity, Bags Connection manufacture a range of EVO tank bags shaped to suit different shapes of motorcycle. The GS, for example, fits bikes with steeply sloping tanks and expands from 16-22 litres. Meanwhile the Sport is designed for machines with long flat tanks, expanding from 14-21 litres without being bulky or obtrusive.

Motohaus Powersports are the new UK distributor for Airhawk comfort seating systems.
Airhawk’s Dry Flotation Technology was originally developed in the USA for wheelchair users, who are at risk from pressure ulcers caused by remaining seated for long periods of time. Inter-connecting air cells in the Airhawk cushion equalise forces over weight bearing areas of the body and this sytem proved equally effective for motorcyclists.
Over the years Airhawk has built a reputation for enabling touring riders to spend longer in the saddle and their cushions have been used by Ewan McGregor on his Long Way Round trip and also by Guinness World Record breaking adventure motorcyclists Kevin and Julia Sanders, who rode around the world in 19.5 days.
Airhawk cushions are produced in sizes to suit most types of motorcycle. Retail prices start at £89 (including VAT) for a polyurethane cushion – the more durable neoprene versions sell from £169 (pillion versions are slightly less expensive).
For more information on the technology and complete range of Airhawk comfort seating systems call 01256 704909
We are close from 22nd December and back in the office again on the 2nd January. All Orders will be processed when we are back from the Christmas break. Merry Christmas from Motohaus.
If you’re riding during winter, then regular cleaning is crucial to protect a bike from corrosion, but it’s difficult to find the time (and the inclination) to do this frequently in cold weather. Formulated to clean and protect against corrosion with just one application, SDoc100 Motorcycle Total Cleaner makes caring for your machine throughout the winter season much easier.
There’s no need to spend time out in the cold scrubbing off ingrained dirt, simply spray Sdoc100 over your machine, then pop inside for a cuppa while the gel formula clings to the target surface and allows active degreasers to remove road grime, grease and salt.
As there’s no need for brushing, it reduces the risk of damage to panels and paintwork and allows even the most inaccessible areas to be treated. A light wipe with a soft sponge is all that’s needed on even the grubbiest patches. . It’s also pH neutral, so won’t damage sensitive surfaces like aluminum or black chrome. Crucially, Sdoc100 leaves behind an anti-corrosive layer to protect against salt and water damage – and a UV filter to help prevent sun bleaching – so there’s no need to buy and apply separate treatments.
Voted Germany’s best motorcycle cleaning brand from 2007-’12 by Motorrad magazine, Sdoc100 Motorcycle Gel Total Cleaner comes in a 1 litre spray bottle with sponge. It also comes in 1 litre refills, for a cost effective way to keep your bike in great condition through the winter.
Former Formula One driver Sir Stirling Moss OBE put Keis heated clothing to the test during the annual London to Brighton Veteran Car Run. At the wheel of a 1903 Panhard Levassor belonging to Christopher Jaques, Sir Stirling lined up in the torrential rain at Hyde Park, alongside 448 other pre-1905 veteran cars.
“I must say that this year, despite the weather, I arrived in Brighton very comfortable, very warm and able to greet people with a genuinely warm smile!” comments Sir Stirling.
Wearing a Keis heated waistcoat and under gloves, powered from a compact 12V Li-ion battery pack, proved comfortable and unobtrusive;
“The body warmer/vest was terrific because it fitted snugly without being tight or restrictive. The glove linings were also terrific and kept my hands so warm and therefore supple enough for driving and signing autographs”.
Incorporating the latest Metal Fibre Element Technology, Keis heated clothing provides reliable, even heating and is water resistant too – it can even be hand-washed and drip-dried.
“For my money, these products are essential items for enjoying outdoor activities in cold wintry conditions and I highly recommend them” concludes Sir Stirling moss OBE.
Prices for Keis body warmers start at £109.99 and the inner gloves sell for £49.99. Call 01256 704909 or visit www.keisapparel.co.uk for details.
