Mark Motorcycle riding kit

My Riding Kit Review

I've done a fair few miles this year on a range of motorcycles, and as you would expect in England, in a range of different conditions. From a glorious heatwave to torrential rain, and everything in between. 

To this end, I thought I'd do a quick mid-year review of the riding gear I've been using and a brief overview of it.

Ferrari GTC4Lusso V12

Ferrari GTC4Lusso V12 Luxury Tour Review

I took the Ferrari on a long, leisurely tour of vineyards with International Excellence Luxury Magazine colleague Darren Lynsdale. We took in the Surrey Hills, the valleys of Hampshire and the Sussex coast. Of particular note were the fine white wines at the Rathfinny Estate, which is a stunning new vineyard near Seaford.

So, the Ferrari GTC4Lusso V12 statistics. It has a 6.3 L V12 engine, with four-wheel steering and drive, 681 bhp, does 0-62 mph in 3.5 secs and has a top speed of  208 mph.
