Well the woman is up for it so looks like we'll bob over, we don't live very far away anywho. She's undecided whether she's going to pillion or come on her tiddler (won't have her big bike licence by then)

Bikers world had zero items that fit the woman, she wasn't happy, not having much luck finding woman shaped textiles at all, (including the 'womens' ones)

I'm going to have to give this one a miss unfortunately.  :(  I'm off the bike (& work) for at least a month as I've fractured my wrist after taking a tumble at work. Have a good 'un guys!

My missus has found Alpine Stars women's kit to fit really well - and she's not a 5'3", 6 stone model type, like most women's kit is made for.

Yes! They're made in my neck of the woods in Sheffield. They're well known among the amateur racing fraternity for making bespoke racing suits- very good quality kit you have there Mr Sharp.

You either got there to early or to late.  :lol

Good to meet up with old faces and some new ones.

Hope everybody got home safe.

Oooow look. I can see my Julie in the picture.  :lol

You must have just missed us Fazersharp.

328 mile round trip for me Red... I win.

Would have been shorter mileage but Northampton wouldn't let me out.
