You'll oftern see us wearing the Shark Raw helmet, further to its launch in 2013 the SHARK Raw has been a huge success for the French brand with its unique style and urban look.
Admiitadlly Suzy struggled with fitting the mask for the first hour or two, it's worth it though if you're looking for that urban style.
To accompany the helmet SHARK has now launched a range of masks and goggles to further improve the look of the Raw and provide the option to customise to individual style.
The range of accessories includes separate masks with graphic options including Union Jack, Camo and All Over with an RRP of £19.99. Separate goggle frames in grey and white with an RRP of £39.99 and goggle lens available in dark smoke, orange, green, chrome and clear with an RRP of £29.99 and £24.99 for the clear version.

Bike World returns to your screens for 2014 with Series 6! To kick off the new series, we head out to Spain to put our track bike through its paces at Almeria, with none other than former WSB Champion Neil Hodgson. Plus we will find out all of the awesome work that has been undertaken on the bike since series 5, and get to catch up with Youtube sensation Baron Von Grumble. Don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten how wet and miserable it is here in the UK, so we will also be taking a look at a range of waterproof boots to keep you dry.
Plus we have a chance for you to be like Luke, and get to spend 4 days riding around the Almeria Circuit with Neil, in our amazing competition!
Shiny boots man!!!
Yes we love a good pair of boots here at Bike World, so when we heard of the new range of TCX boots coming out for 2014, we thought we would highlight a few that we liked.
First up you have the new RS2- Evo, its an evolution (see what we did there?) of the RS2 which came out last year. It's got a restyle, and has TCX's FFC (Fasten Fit Control) system where laces are sewn into the liner of the boot for added comfort and fit, and will cost £289.99 (pictured above).
Looking for something a bit more subtle? How about these X Square Sport. They still have that sporty look, but are a bit more comfortable for longer rides, and would go well with jeans, plus they even have a slider on the front outer edge! They will cost you £89.99, but they also do a waterproof version for £99.
Finally for those wanting a bit of urban chic, how about these new "Converse style" trainer look-a-likes, called the X-Rap, which actually come with full CE approved protection? Yes that's right, they look like trainers, but are actually bike boots, and waterproof at that. They come in loads of different colours, and they also do a ladies version of the boot too. Not just for scooter riders, we really like these and the will be £129.99 when they hit the dealers!
To find out more on these and to see the full range of new boots for 2014, you can visit TCX's website here, and you can see all of these and more at Motorcycle Live at the NEC.
Wow - just check out these time sheets!!
Bradley Smith is less than 3 tenths of a second behind Marquez.......a brilliant effort from the Brit! If you are wondering where Rossi and Lorenzo are in the timing sheets, the Yamaha Factory team concluded its testing yesterday.
Bradley said that the pace of new team mate Pol Espargaro as soon as he stepped on the MotoGP bike had been brilliant motivation for him. That time is not just quick, it's quicker than Pedrosa in Qualifying on Saturday, and would have grabbed him third on the grid, plus it was a whole second quicker than Pedrosa's new lap record for the circuit achieved during the race.
Its not just the second fastest time of the day, but the second fastest time of the whole three days, only Marquez, the new MotoGP Champion has gone faster! An effort made even more remarkable by the fact Bradley didn't go out at all on Monday, taking a rest day instead.
