£12.50 per wheel sand blasting, then £12.50 per wheel for the powder coating, although that price will be dependant on the final colour/finish chosen - about £50 all in for both wheels

Hmmm kwaka green... not sure, as it throws up the same spick and span cleaning issues as the yellow :wink:

Keep the opinions coming though folks as if yellow/greens seem to be the best choice I'll just have to bite the bullet and wash 'em every darn ride :biggrin:

Thats really good to know. I can cope with a little mesh burn if need be! How fast do you think you were going?

Well, I purchased said jacket today and wore it home - what a difference. Stopping at lights isn't much different, but even in a T-shirt you'll be hot at the lights - but once you are moving, what relief! :biggrin: I can see me wearing a bikini top under that one :laughing:

Even in the UK we are having average temps of 35C (95F) in the shade, not sure what that equates to in the sun - all I know is that its meltingly hot ;) So much so I'm picking a mesh jacket up tomorrow.

Today, we had a mean temp of 30C in the shade with humidity of 91% :blink:

Mesh Armoured Jackets

Does anybody here use these? Can they recommend them? I've tried one on and its comfortable enough, but as they are made of cordura type nylon I'm wondering how sweaty you get in them when stood still :laughing: I'm guessing they are great when on the move, or maybe not? :?

I don't mean to be ignorant, but if she is frightened, why is she contemplating getting on the back of your bike? Who wants this to happen - you, or her?

Hmmm... mini-moto's are popular amongst the great unwashed round here, they are also popular with the police who like to confiscate them :biggrin: (they are illegal, 99.9999% of the time).

Mini-Me Pillions

What is the youngest age pillions people have taken on the back of their bikes? My son is four and, now I've passed my test and am allowed, I really want to get him kitted up and take him out - though admittedly, at this age, it would at first be no more than ten minutes round the block! What age is...

On the bike I frequently do not stick to the speed limit.

In the car however I do, unless motorway driving.

In the UK we have a tiered system for motorcycle access/riding entitlement; the DAS is the Direct Access route where, once passing the test, the rider is legally entitled/qualified to ride any size motorbike - as opposed to being restricted to 33bhp for a two-year period. :thumbsup:
