I will be buying another large bike cover, my 2yo Aldi cover has lost most of its' clear seam waterproofing tape, and the rear clear panel has fallen apart.
Just a reminder that the Aldi annual Motorcycle gear sale is on again today
been but did not buy- helmet size did not make a comfortable fit.
Picked up two helmets, a jacket, and a pair of their armoured jeans.
I've seen their helmets crash tested in person, my son wrote off three of them. If they fit your head they're as safe as any brand out there. Same with the leather jacket. He crashed hard enough to land his CB250 upside down, bend the frame, and crack the engine casing. Jacket performed as advertised and didn't even rupture any stitching. Same with the gloves.
I'm pretty set for gear, but I did pick up 5 new pairs of socks!!
only 5- what about the other 2 days?lol
Can never have enough helmets
So I've been rocking one of the new helmets and a leather jacket since the first day of the sale.
Pretty impressed. The helmet isn't the pinnacle of design, but it's comfortable enough and certainly value for money with the full standards compliance. The jacket seems heavy but it's solid and the armour seems to stay where it should be on my frame. It's a little warmer than expected if anything. Combined with a neck sock it makes a good winter jacket, though I think it might be a bit hot for local summer riding (40+C temperatures expected again this year where I am) especially when combined with the mid-layer top.
Socks are a evergreen winner.
Haven't spent any time in the armoured jeans yet.
The elastic kidney belt was a bust, wait for the MX version. Still have mine from a few years ago and it's still good.
