Over the last month or so the technical guru known as Ewan has been upgrading the Motorcycle Road and Race website as it was getting a bit long in the tooth. Most of the upgrades are behind the scenes and have not really effected the way the site looks (yet) but they have made the site quicker, easier to use and a little more modern to suit the latest browsers etc.
One of the things we are trialling at the moment is a new predictive search feature which allows the user to search for parts and accessories more easily. Simply input your bike and the item you are looking for and a window will appear listing the most relevant results as well as anything similar. Let us know how you get on with it, if its successful we will leave it up.

I think this morning is the first time i have felt cold this autumn. Brrrrrrr
We have full stocks of the new Keis heated jacket which has heated front, back, sleeves and collar and the new Keis outer gloves too. Both will keep you toasty warm during the cold days. All sizes available from stock. We also have the latest heated soles which are far more robust than the previous version, coming in several different sizes so you no longer need to cut them to shape.
As always we have the X5 vest and heated inner gloves too.
The new sleeved jacket can only be run from the bikes battery as it has a very high current drain, far too much for the Keis batteries to cope with. A heavy duty heat controller is included free of charge too and for a limited time only we are offering these at the discounted price of £149.99.
Motorcycle road and race have been selling Keis products for 4 years now and are proud to do so. Fantastic quality and a customer service second to none. The new additions to the range of very welcome and we will be keeping as much stock as we can.

The last race of the GP calender held at Valencia was very special in more ways than one. After loosing Marco (SIC) Simoncelli 2 weeks earlier at the Sepang round a “Casino” was planned as a tribute to him. A Casino in Italy is 2 minutes of noise as a sign of respect and it involved every 125, Moto 2 and Moto GP on track at the same time followed by 2 minutes of fireworks. It was a fitting send off and a moving gesture.
The racing was good too which is something that does not always happen at the Ricardo Tormo circuit with light rain on and off all day and everyone riding on slicks. Lots of crashing but no one hurt luckily.
The last ever 125gp saw Danny Webb on pole riding the Mahindra which was a great suprise but a lack of speed showed in the race and he retired on lap 13. The Moto 2 race saw Bradley Smith fall off to remount and finish in 23rd. The race was won by Gresini rider Michele Pirro.
Moto GP was almost a disaster at the first corner with Bautista loosing control and taking out the Ducati’s of Rossi, Hayden and De Puniet who all had looked good in the dodgy weather during practice. Stoner looked to have run away with it until the last few laps when he was caught by Ben Spies but Honda power won the day with Stoner getting better drive out of the last corner and winning by 0.015 of a second. Biggest shout out of the day goes to Cal Crutchlow who managed a season best 4th place winning him Rookie of the year.
I am very much looking forward to the 1000cc bikes coming back next year and i hope that tyre smoke and multiple line racing returns with a vengence.
