Not quite as bright as the model before it , the one I bought.

Very versatile jackets , thermal and waterproof liners , and dozens of pockets....

You have a nice shelf with photo's of your daughters and .... Michelin man? You're a sad person! Nice jacket though, although the earlier models don't have the removeable colar for neck brace use.

yeah, its what I spend my evenings doing during the long Perth winter months.

Actually I picked it up in Madras many years ago...it was pretty easy to take something like that with you on a bike.

How's things up your way Mick? We should make sure we have that beer this year!

I also had my eye on one of these or one of the Kini versions and I was planning on buying online from Sommer....But as I'm in Sydney I could go over to Prorider to examine the merchandise beforehand so I took a look at their site for the first time. Is it me or the site that's screwy? They claim to have over 40,000 items in their catalogue but I managed to pull only a few and only those I don't want. Anyone been through this?

This shot shows very clearly the one downside to the neckbraces

They are damn fine bug & vegetation debris scoops !!!

I have had multiple bugs, a couple of bees, lots of bits a bushes and some prickles end up going down inside the neckbrace

Damn bee on the Safari last year stung like hell

You're right Garry, they are a scoop...and an everything scoop for that matter...it suprising how much crap works down into the chest region as well...btw, Gazza wanted to borrow the brace for the Condo - is he due at your place anytime soon? I can drop round with it for him.
If not ask him to call me, I don't have his number, and we'll arrange to meet.

Dulux Suede effect...use a wide brush and random stroke pattern, keeping a constantly wet edge so it bleeds the layers against each other. A simple method of disguising bad plaster finish in an 1890's house. Abracadabra!

I agree, I have had some problems nav'ing the online catalogue. Try these guys for an easier nav enviroment. http://www.mototech.com.au/
In both entering cases part numbers work best, as opposed to a wide sweeping title search.
