Treat your motorbike, and knees, to a workshop mat

It’s not the red carpet but if you want to give your motorbike some special treatment why not invest in a stylish mat to stand it on?

We now stock Oxford Workshop Mats which are designed to make storage and maintenance of your motorbike safer and tidier.

They’re available in various sizes and designs but we’ve gone for large ones which measure one metre by two metres. They cost £59.

The 5mm deep polyester pile carpet has a fluid-resistant TPR (thermoplastic rubber) backing so it captures minor oil and water spills. A sewn edge helps keep fluids on the mat.

The hard-wearing mat is comfortable to kneel on and track compliant, meeting the regulations of the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM), the global governing/sanctioning body of motorcycle racing.

Daniel Williams, parts, clothing and accessories manager, said: “If you’re working on your motorbike, it keeps the floor clean if you drop anything.

“People also get them because they look good under the bike in the garage, shed… or even in the house!”
