You Euro's are lucky!

No offense, but finding Africa Twin apparel and 'bling' in the States is like pulling teeth!!
But you Euro guys and gals have a fair assortment of shirts and other stuff, many of which either don't ship to the U.S. or are costly as **** to bring over!!!
Yeah, I know, I'm being a bitch, sorry.
But I love my new AT, and really want that stuff!
Bloody ****.
LOL!

One cool & froody dude who knows where his towel is!

When I was in San Francisco last month I got blown away by a dude on a Tri color with full AT gear on. It was awesome. WOudl have been nice to know where he bought it all. He was gone.

If you mean this.. have to say, I looked at the Jacket up close a little while back and wasn't hugely impressed. Produced by Spidi for Honda and lacking the one thing I think is absolutely crucial (especially given the price). Goretex.

Also there is the one from Alpinestars.. with the Blue, that is considereably cheaper but again, no Goretex.

Well you do get to pay a premium for branded merchandise. How much was it? Did it have any waterproofing at all?

The Spidi was £350, The Alpinestars is available in the states for $290 according to this site: https://tinyurl.com/y2c5eyon


Both have a goretex-like membrane.

The Alpinestar has something similar to goretex, it's called Drystar.

I have that one, and so far, so good... i even stoped using the rain jacket i had, just because this one, so far, is waterproof...

Now, it's a joy riding in the rain:
