Something New

A little while ago I blogged about losing weight and having to do something about my now over sized elephant sized leathers. Well yesterday after extensive looking around at whats available and even trying on bushpigs new dainese suit I decided I'd get myself an Alpinestars GP R jacket with a a set of Alpinestars missile leather pants. I can't wait to get out for a ride in my new gear. Hopefully I don't put any weight on over the coming winter, I don't want to have to buy a third set. Your right bro motorcycles will keep you penny-less, well that and kids.

    1. Hi mate
      The jacket is leather although down the inside of the arms its like some gorex material, probably to make it lighter

  3. Well deserved after losing some pounds.

    You worked hard to do it, I am sure they'll stay off over the winter.

  5. Very sharp looking! I like the yellow it adds some panache! You aren't the only one who worries about gaining weight over winter and gear fitting in the spring. My winter involves Christmas baking that my daughter does and then me consuming.
