Re: Post a picture from your latest ride

It was a great ride. What a lovely way to spend time - a mixture of fast sweeping A roads - many of them empty, and tight single tracks with plenty of hairpins. Two highlights: Winnats Pass in the Hope Valley, Derbyshire. A beautiful place - and surely a rare picture with such a perfectly blue sky! ...

Look forward to the photographs.

We're off to Oxford tomorrow.

Re: Post a picture from your latest ride

I was totally surprised as to how cooler my face and head felt. The vents seemed to work better than those on my HJC IS-Max II. The helmet is a Frank Thomas which is a brand acquired by J & S Motorcycles from whom I bought it. I had my eye on a much more expensive helmet but the assistant suggested...

Re: Post a picture from your latest ride

^^^ Nice. I have also been thinking of getting an "adventure" type helmet - on the basis they have a larger visor area and perhaps a bigger opening at the chin - making it potentially more airy to wear - and therefore, cooler?

Re: Decisions, decisions.

The Black Bay and the Speedmaster are both very legible watches in my experience.

Considering the Speedmaster is a chronograph it is remarkably easy to see the time - probably the best chrono in this respect.
