Sorry to hear about your off, SAR, but I'm glad to see the jacket did so well. Guess the poly outer isn't a big deal after all. Good luck on your recovery.

Nice, thanks. I was just curious, since the bike's on my "things I want someday" list. Besides, my wife's only 5'2", so she doesn't need much room :D
