Re: Mid layer...

I too have the Oxford Mondial Jacket (and Trousers). I've been commuting in the Jacket & Trousers since November, so far so good. I just wear a polo shirt under the jacket, when it gets really cold I put the liner back in :lol: Only Joking. I've noticed the draft too (as I call it) at the front of t...

Re: car behaviour when joining a main carriageway

I also remember when an amber light at a traffic lights also meant stop at the line unless you are so close that if you pull up you might cause an accident, Now it appears if a light turns to amber, step on the gas and race through....usually just after it turns red :roll: :D

Re: helmet removal at filling staions

ah the old H&S chestnut eh! Requiring motorcyclists to remove their helmets at filling stations is not a health and safety issue. Case 319 from the Health & Safety Executives myth busters page Requiring motorcyclists and passengers to dismount and place the motorcycle on its stand during refuelling ...

Re: Oford Mondial laminated suit

I bought the jacket and trousers back in November and so far I am very impressed with them. I can't afford the likes of Klim and Rukka, so after doing some research I opted for the Oxford Mondial Adventure. I have found the Oxford product far better than my Aplinestars Andes suit. I commute everyday...

Re: Scotland trip advice

Hello there I'm no expert on the subject, but we toured up yonder back in April 2017 and going back again early May 2019. What I can say is do your route and accommodation research by using something along the lines of Google maps and Booking dotcom. Book early and expect to pay a little more than a...

Re: The good the bad & **********

Hello I was involved in a head on collision in 2014. The car driver lost control of his car and crossed in to my lane and hit me. I didn't have legal protection so it was a no win no fee case around the compensation. My Insurance company paid out for the bike very quickly and took action to reclaim ...
