Suited and indeed booted
Until 1974 there were no such things as waterproofs. There were things made from waxed-cotton that acted like poor sponges before leeching their contents into your crotch. The same things hipsters pay £900 for today. What we see here are people so excited to wear the new gear that judging by their footwear and the lush foliage on the trees it’s high summer. Only yer man in the Hondastyle two-piece is sporting the Derriboots. The dude on the GL1100 with the crucial matching lid (matching his waterproofs, not the bike) is clearly having the time of his life parked next to the young woman in the silver suit. Imagine their discomfort.
Quality never goes out of style
