    As you have two tone socks, does that make you a skinhead ?

    You're new here aren't you... It's purely a case of an idiosyncrasy peculiar to UKGSer.
    You'll get used to It, it just takes time... Be strong.
    Some people are more violently opposed to fur than leather,
    because it's safer to harass rich women than motorcycle gangs.

    Works for me, and a decent oversuit is only about £60 or so, mine's from HG.
    I am coming to the same conclusion TBH

    It will pain me to wear a £60 rain suit over a £1600 gore tex one

    then do it the other way round, that way you could imagine its the £1600 suit keeping the water out.

    I use a mesh seat cover that allows the water to drain away from your croutch and is upto 35 degrees cooler to sit on in the summer.

    I am well accustomed to good banter, and Stolzy's reply was far from it. A number of "seasoned" GSers seem to believe they have the only opinion worth listening to and overreact to the slightest criticism - quite immature really.

    In a crowd of possibly 6 or 7 bikes ?? If so you passed a white and red 1200r on the road over from Tummel Bridge, (I was up a track just off the road) then both of us passed you guys as you had stopped at Weem, I was on the blue Tenere with panniers on...was that your crowd ??
