▲ 2019 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Standard. Powered by the new(ish) 107-cubic inch (1,750cc) Milwaukee Eight V-twin engine, MoCo is going "back to basics" with its latest "nostalgic" heavyweight tourer. Batwing fairing; capacious panniers; crash bars; oodles of chrome; and no infotainment thereby "leaving the rider to focus on connecting with the road." Hmm. Other features include electronic cruise control, hand-adjustable emulsion-technology rear shocks/dampers, 49mm front fork with Dual Bending Valve suspension, and Reflex Linked Brembo Brakes with ABS. The Electra Glide is unquestionably a motorcycling icon, and we love it. Long may it continue. Vivid Black is the only colour option. £19,995 is the suggested retail price.

H-D Street brake recall


Harley-Davidson is recalling most, if not all, of its Street model motorcycles built 2015 and 2018 citing potentially defective brakes. As is required by law, the company recently informed the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that there is an issue with the brake calipers that warrants closer inspection. The affected bikes include 12,871 XG500, XG750 and XG750A units sold into the US market. But the total recall covers 43,908 machines worldwide.





2019 Zero SR/F roadster


Zero Motorcycles has released details of the latest addition to its all-electric fleet, and the firm is talking big numbers and making bold claims. The bike, un-cunningly named the Zero SR/F, is claimed to be "the unprecedented combination of industry-leading power, control, and connection".  Whilst clearly born into the same Zero family, this newcomer has muscled its way to new heights with a bigger motor, a larger battery pack, more power, more torque, increased range and a lot more electronic tech.

Sump workshirt £26.99

All purpose street & garage wear


We spend much of our miserable lives in the garage. Usually we're fixing bikes and stuff, and all too often we're re-fixing the stuff we ought to have fixed properly the first time around.


So it goes.


Anyway, we wanted to increase our product range (that's partly how we fund Sump) and we've been thinking for some time about introducing workshirts and general shirts that we might want to wear when the weather closes in—which is most of the time in the UK. Anyway, this is the result; our first Sump branded garage/all purpose shirt.


The Sump logo is featured above the left-side pocket only (notice how we cunningly avoided saying "breast"?). The image quality is very good and will last the life of the shirt.


We think these are pretty good quality and worth the money. First come, first served, etc.


Hit the button below, baby...







BSA M20/M21

workshirt £26.99

All purpose street & garage wear


Seems that plenty of folk love our BSA M20/M21 T-shirt design which features the above roundel. So, to widen the appea we decided to reproduce it on a more formal shirt that you might want to wear in the garage or in the magistrate's court.


The shirts are 100% cotton twill, which means they're tougher than ordinary cotton. We wear these ourselves, and we're perfectly happy with them—and we're nothing if not hard to please. Follow the links and see if they're right for you (Hint: they probably are).


The BSA M20/M21 roundel is featured above the left-side pocket only. And when you wear this, other BSA folk will notice and might even become your friend and take you out for walks and stuff. It happens.


The image quality is very good and will last the life of the shirt. You know you want it, and you know we've got it.
