    Have fun..

    Action shots maybe...I'm riding the GS instead of the XR650R 'cause my action ain't what it used to be and keeping up with the young guys is where I'm thinking of getting hurt...I'll take my pig of a beemer and not get so much action!:rofl

    Got mine yesterday, thanks Paul! I would have gotten it a couple of days earlier but I was down in the Black Hills riding for a few days. Had a blast...of course!

    Tried to get some good pics of the jacket but it looks like all of them were too far away to show the gear very well. Sounds like a good reason to go back to me. :D

    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 :lol3

    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 :lol3

    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.:wink:

    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 :clap

    Cheers,
