Re: Body armour

Have you bought your armour yet? I went for the soft approach and got the Knox Action shirt. Currently £125 https://www.sportsbikeshop.co.uk/motorcycle_parts/content_prod/487109 I like this as it's soft armour and less restricting, but also absorbs impact rather than just blocking it like hard plast...

Re: Great Western Trail (TET)

This chap has documented it.

Re: 80s BMW GS v new model GS

I've had mine since 2001. It's definitely a keeper.
