LORD OF THE RINGS
When a person wore the Ring, he/she would be partly "shifted" out of the physical realm into the spiritual realm. There, if one managed to consciously subdue the Ring's will with ones own, one could wield all the powers that Sauron had before he lost the Ring. A side effect (but usually the first effect noticed) of the Ring was that it made the wearer invisible to physical beings like living Men

Pretty sure I passed you on US 50 outside Gunnison a few weeks back. Yours was the only Tenere I saw for 2100 miles before getting to Ouray

Are you still having the BMW?

I'm selling it, just waiting for the BMW answer to surrogate the SELECT. I saw the "Transibérica" pictures, very very nice! Do you know the "Lés a Lés" tour?

Indeed. By the way, where do you get your Rev'it suit and gloves? I can only find Rev'it in Andorra.

I didn't have the old Sand jacket, I have the Defender.
The new Sand is more ventilated than the Defender. I think the Sand is better for summer, good chest ventilation and the pockets are larger.
I dont know how it works in rain yet, the Defender is Gore Tex but the Sand aren't.
Both are very nice jackets.

Oh...defender right. Sand 2 has the same spec liner as my Sand "1". It's good for some light/medium rain. It will be soaked from outside, but the water proof liner will keep you dry. ;)

I own also own a Sand 1. It's the best fitting Jacket I've owned, but I won't buy another. My next jacket will have a gortex shell; no more fussing with a removable liner. Like you said, it's good for light rain, but once the shell soaks, it's a matter of time before small amounts if water pass through the seams of the 'water proof' liner. My other complaint is that the stitching that fastens the pocket velcro has come loose after only two short seasons. I will try my luck with Klim next.

I've used Rev'It since when I started to ride (2005), love(d) the design and the fit! But I hate the fiddling with the rain layers. I used the Defender for crossing the Americas and when the rain poored down from the skies, it didn't kept me dry. Riding in the amazons, stopping and zipping the rain gear on was always a pain in the ass...

Now I'm trying to get my hands on KLIM (Badlands Pro). I've been told the gear is rainproof already. But the only problem is that they're hard to find in Belgium.
