initially I thought thats alot of F'n money for a damn jacket but the quality equals to all of the other good stuff out there + you get the extra safety of the airbag system with it Definately worth checking out if your in the market for a new jacket

i just added that to my wish list. reminds me of my scubapro bc, makes water crossing a lot safer too....

Yes and I told him to take pictures for his RR. I think he didn't take any yet. :(

At least he we be visible.
One of the last things I heard Tex talk about was how he was going against his girlfriends wishes and taking the long way home to her, in order to ride in warmer weather. I think the adventure will begin when he gets home.

Tex finally made it home. He says he rode 300 miles in the rain and he is cold.
He had quite an adventure on his way. I'll let him tell his story once he is warmed up by his GF...

jim, like anything on this website, lots of stuff requires parental control. but really appreciate you're following my post. if the subtlety on my avatar which i thought was funny is perceived as vulgar, i can change it anytime.


i'm even starting to h8 my nome de plume, since people only see the 2 digits......

dec. 27 to 30.

ride as far south as we can....maybe up to punta san francisquito

we'll cherry pick the dirt sections. not enough time to do all dirt all the way, maybe another time.
