So what gear did you select?
A pair of easy iron beige trousers with matching lambswool cardigan, or something a with a more masculine air, such as a leather waistcoat, or possibly a bowling shirt?

@Marshman

A bowling shirt......... at this time of year, you must be joking, that's only allowed in the summer months.

No it was definitely the rufty tufty nasty bikers type of gear, but only one glove as it made it easier to turn the page, which in it self made the overtake difficult. I can't believe they didn't mention that in the article.

Bowling shirt?
Hmm. Now you're talking. Do you mean, like one of those tasty (but gay I hear) FJR bowling shirts?

Ianfr, let me explain the bowling shirt thing. http://www.store5555.com/ebay/S/FJR%...Untitled-1.gif

Now about the overtaking thing. Some peeps round here like to sharpen their skills through reading articles in Ride magazine, so from time to time they have to prop it on their handlebars and read it as they go.

Actually they are doing very well and pretty soon will be learning how to get the hang of backmarking without having to stop for a smoke every two minutes.

Anyway. Back to the thread.

OY WOODY AND SUE. YOU SORTED THE VENUE YET?
