Wife thinks amp cage is ugly

In my opinion it's a bit crude but not that bad. She wants to hide it in a cabinet for goodness sake.

Re: Rainproof winter motorcycling pants

Hello Bob, couldn't find the suit you mentioned on the web, perhaps discontinued. I once had a one piece suit, I remember it was a bit awkward to put on and off, especially when the cold made you wee...

Re: Motorbikes.

Some very nice bikes photoed here.
Looking at the ads in classic bike mag, I reckon the price of old British and Italian bikes has doubled since this thread has started.
