Suited and in­deed booted

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Ps World -

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
