 :460:    I'm envious P2B. Looks like a great trip despite the weather.  :028:

From the postings, you're one of the few that got a good trip in this year. Between covid, work and lately wildfires, I've had only one short jaunt that wasn't a commute.  Been a f%@&ed year for sure  :013:  Good on ya for gettin out.  :031:

Aye m8, it was a lot better than nothing. Had to do something after me & wifey's trip to Italy got cancelled then chum & me decided to ammend our Picos trip to next year after Spain's CV rate soared. It's sure been a miserable year for biking.

Ruined a second pair of Spada summer gloves. Only used for about 3 months since I bought them last year and the finger stitching's gone. Don't  know what they make them of these days. Bah ....

Ayup m8, I can recommend these Revitt Monster 2 summer gloves. Being Goatskin they are ok in a shower, had mine 2 years.

Thanks for the rec. But being a cheapskate I've just bought some on eBay from Germany, for 10! Supposedly goatskin, they feel pretty thick and inflexible. But for the price I'll give em a try. If no good I'll just chuck em. Winter pair are Triumph's finest.

Been spoilt in the past. Had several people give me gloves, and they were pretty good too, one of the best pairs were ex-firefighters gloves ...
