A day at the races

I'll be coming out to the races with my son (who will be TRAILERING his bike for all of our enjoyment). He likes to stay at the track - would it be poor form to show up at your spread on Sunday...

I wear the ultra II mesh pants with both the waist cut mesh and the Riva 1000d. I've posted pictures on the big motoport thread about four years ago, if you like i'll take some new ones.

Thumb Call Wayne the Mesh Nazi

I'm on my fourth year of every day use - nothing I've owned has held up close to this long, and I think I'll get another four years with minor repairs.

Skip the liner - buy a bright-assed yellow...

Thumbs down OK, two months in, about 1.5k miles

I had to replace an almost new Pirelli Strada on the rear, and I went with the Angel ST.

After 1.5k miles, it's pretty clear that the Angel ST does not have the wet weather grip that the Strada...

It's dangerous. It's expensive. It takes quality time away from your family. It's hot in the summer, cold in the winter. Your butt will hurt. Your feet will get wet. It's dangerous.

If you don't abuse your dictionary, either

Then it doesn't matter. Anything will hold up to non-abuse.

But if you're a manly man, with a manly man vocabulary and penchant for destruction, go with the motoport.

sartorial, indeed.

I wouldn't go quite that far

I have full confidence in my Motoport Mesh. And it is far cooler then perfed leather.

It ain't 'sexy', but I wouldn't say that about any of my clothing. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

I don't think the delta at any point in time tells the story. What are the steady state values at idle, say for 10-15 seconds? If they're out of tolerance (whatever that is) compare the response...

Well said - don't overthink it.
