Nice! What bike have you got...?

That's a neat bit of kit.  :thumb:
Unless it's got two wheels and an engine slung in the middle, I'm not interested.

Twin Peaks  wasn't that a horror mystery?
sorry - only joking
Look at the clock and the calendar.
It'll never be now again.
So just get out and do it.
As fast as you possibly can.

If you don't mind me asking, how much did that cost you. I'd understand if you'd rather not say.
I'd love a Barry Sheene paint job on my Arai. I got in touch with Arai in Holland to ask if they'd ever do another Barry Sheene helmet, they said they had no plans to do another BS helmet, then in the last part of the email, said" But never say never"
