If your expecting to see the blue option you'll be disappointed but a pleasant day all the same.

That's a shame - it looks good in the marketing pictures. Probably for the best though as I don't want to be tempted!

Glad to hear the show is good - I am off there next weekend.

Talking of KTM, loved the 1290R GT

Quite tempted for when I replace the XR.

Honest answer don't know because I'm not currently in the market for one but a mate who went looking for an RX7V went to Helmet City but he had some hassle with fitting and didn't bother in the end.

Re the Blue XR think I was more taken aback as much as suprised I'm more than happy with what I have but sales are sales and they have missed a trick.

Had a rush of blood to the head and bought a Klim Badlands :156:

Long story short!! Had a mail from M+P a month ago at £850 had another Thursday at £716 as per usually the Yanks get them way below that price I see on ebay they are selling theirs at around £560!!! I digress.

Got all the sales speel 20% off yea off what!!!! And it came to the same at 716 will they go cheaper months from now? maybe

But you have to try them on,I'm XL in everything from tee shirts to bike jackets I try an XL on and it 4 inches past my streached out fingers  :008: the sales guy 'Are yes they are fat American sizes' and a medium fitted great
My other half has a Rukka but the latest ones have elasticated cuffs which I have no doubt is great on a UK winters day but not my thing when it's 35+ in southern Spain and the Klim doesn't have them and my fetish in jackets when I stuff my pockets full of junk the go out and instead of pressing inwards.

Oh blimey forgot you can have one with the word Klim in black instead of yellow only costs another 200 quid :012:

Wow that Klim stuffs dear, I get Halvarssons / Lindstrands at a good price, great stuff. Just need to find a decent Shoei at a good price.
Currently being battered by 'storm' Angus, rains presently horizontal along my street which may prevent a ride to the bike show Wednesday

I have Klim Badlands trousers and a Klim Apex jacket. Its brilliant, I was in a total monsoon in Belgium and its never leaked a bit.

You won't regret it.
