Saw this guy on my way home from work the other evening..... The long leather coat made him stand out ... when the lights changed he was off like a shot, - coat tails flying in the wind like batman's cape. Cool looking dude ......... I'd be worried about catching them in the chain/wheel, but it's what people used to wear to ride in 'back in the day'.

Snapped with my phone....

I think it's probably a suit underneath and he was on his way home from work given the time.
Regarding the face/helmet there is a touch of the 'Judge Dredd' look going on.

I will try and avoid those dates you mention so we can meet up.
Its only a short trip but I am over in France in April and I paid for the trip by selling my TT ferry ticket.
TT is great but the cost of the ferry is astronomical and the money is certainly better spent going to France.
I really envy your mate Bubu as I would love to live over there.

Best wishes to Sarah and enjoy the Spring Summer will soon be here.

Ted
Where will you be in France?

Cool2 coat

Over here in cowboy and Indian land, those "slickers" are made from waxed cotton, and have straps at the knees to keep the bottoms from flapping. If he caught them in the chain, he would be the first to know.

That's what would have worried me too......
'Straps at the knees' - good idea - 'You learn something new every day'.
