Ya, I was watching the radar yesterday. It looked like you guys got dumped on pretty good and it looks even worse today! Looks like I picked the right weekend to come down.

I have a brother that lives just west of Rapid on Sheridan Lake Road so I try to get down there once a month or so during the summer. Maybe we can hook up for a ride sometime. I plan to be down at the end of the month again for a few days hopefully.

I have two Belstaff's that I ride with, a Trekker in the cold weather and a Zodiac in the summer. I wouldn't trade either one of them for anything else! Here's a photo in the Trekker on a rainy ride....I stayed warm and dry!

Love my Davida (even though it's not leagal here). I out a swatch of shepskin in the flaps to keep noise down.
I know you don't make them, but I wish a more oval shape was available. After several hours my forehead starts to feel dented.

AS long as we're doing pictures ~

I'm actually looking at an adventure jacket at the moment. Anyone have any ideas how these are sizing up? (larger or smaller) ... the reason I ask is that I have some Moose adventure pants that came in at the right waist size but look as though they were designed for a 60" inseam

They are great (great) jackets Jeff but I would say they def run small - get one size bigger than you normally would and I think you'll be fine.

I think they are sized for those super-slim yuropeans.

Oh wait...is Britain part of Europe

Thanks Kev - Too bad I'm getting a case of colonial gut ... Guess I'll have to go up a size

Not sure about the Adv. jackets but my Mercury XL just fits, not much room for layering but I don't need it either. Plenty warm with the liner in with just a long sleeve t shirt. I normally wear an XL so I think I would agree with going a size up. If the quality of the Adv. jackets is anything like the Mercury that's an awesome price....I may have to get one myself....if I don't win one.

I bought the XL Adventure and it fits me very well .

I'm 6'3 about 200 lbs. I usually wear 46 L suits for the loose fit (just bought a 44L suit too)...

European brand jackets usualy fit me well in XL.

I tried the L on, but it seemed tight and short in sleeves.

Great jacket. I was able to open all vents today here in Chicago

Cheers,
