A Premier Locker motorbike kit storage solution

If you only have a single motorbike outfit and helmet, then keeping your kit stored when you’re not using it will probably be fairly straightforward.

However, if you have more than one set of kit – one for trackdays, for example, with another for touring, one for weekend chip-runs and one for occasional off-roading – then keeping your kit stored safety and out of the way can start to become tricky.

Of course, you can always pop it out of the way in a wardrobe for example but one thing to bear in mind is the weight of motorcycle kit – I’ve just weighed a textile touring suit with decent armour throughout and it was 5.5kg – that’s without any airbag inserts.

That’s considerably more than the equivalent space of normal clothing so a traditional wardrobe may not be up to the task of holding a selection of motorcycle clothing.

You could also do with not shutting clothing away (unless you’re putting it away for say the winter) so that it gets some air circulation around it to keep it fresh.

There’s nothing worse than digging out clothing from the loft when the weather improves and it’s musty at best and at worst, been eaten by moths or mice.

Here are a few ideas to help you keep your kit handy and in tip-top shape.
