    Just a couple of pics from a recent charity ride we were the only 4 outfits on the ride and lets just say quietly that more than just one Harley got slayed on the ride.

    Yep, can't deny, was looking for heated gloves but when the guy showed me the jacket, had me put it on and plugged it in I immediately asked for a very long extension cord so I could keep it on, walking around the motorshow :D

    In fact my wife decided it was time for my old bones to be kept warm with the low temps of the last couple of weeks ( I didn't object too much of course :D)

    Shut up Halflive :fyyff

    Heated vest association with being old ?

    Bought one about 6 years back and wish I'd done it earlier when reflecting on some of the less comfortable rides over a number of years.

    Observation. Back when in the 60s when slightly wilder, obviously younger, and doing the coffee bar thing, riding mates used to laugh at Pat and I when putting on substantial overtrousers rather than just getting the jeans wet. S'funny, almost all of those guys gave up on bikes and "progressed" to four wheelers. On the other hand, we continued, so maybe there's a message there.

    Thought you might like to see this, mostly completed now.
    This was taken just before taking it to the London International Custom Show, customer is picking it up some time in March. :)

    I've also started building a mini website for the powered wheelchair sidecar if anyone wants to have a look.

    A beautiful outfit Agent Wayward and a true masterpiece in the old meaning of the word. I don't like the exhaust, but it's not my bike so that doesn't matter. If that outfit doesn't bring a lot of bespoke work your way, then their really isn't any justice in this world.

    What a beast!
    I hope the guys you built it for aren't shy retiring types, because I think they are going to get noticed riding this.
