    Here`s the story , i`ve lost about a stone and a half but still my A&M leathers are still too tight , so i`ve been looking for a new set (for knee down times :( ) . Arlen Ness kangaroos , took my eye nice and light , but £700 , more than i wanted to pay , after all my A&M`s were only £300 about 7 yrs ago , but then i fell under the spell of BKS glorious fit , but £800 so let`s wait a few weeks then go get the BKS... Now today i`m looking for a paddock stand for the front of the 675 , and into my local H G store (hold on what`s these) low and behold Arlen Ness kangaroo`s for £550 , today i is one happy bunny , stuff the BKS. jeez it`s nice to be able to move freely once again . And no offence to the good people at A&M but they weigh a ton , and after 150 to 200 miles my legs are in so much pain it`s beyond a joke(calf`s are way to tight) . Not geting them till toos`da but will give my opinion about these new leather`s later , just in case anyone`s thinking of getting them...

    one last note it once took me twenty minutes to get out of the A&M`s on a hot day...
    bring on the Arlen Ness..... :ugeek:

    Im still stuggling into my arlen ness 1 piece after a 4 month training course away from home eating pub food every night. Its been a long time since I properly got my knee down. It's just a little bit of a stretch these days. Better get down the gym! Bad thing is I am going away for another 2 months in a couple of weeks, so more pies and more beer. I will be 'knee down' free for a little while longer :-(

    ^^^^^^^^

    LOL! I usually stay at a pub/hotel when I'm over there...one time I gained a stone in 2 weeks so the next year I vowed to jog every morning...3rd time out I threw my knee out & ended up staying in the pub even MORE - downing Stella & 'mixed grills' every night!!!!

    I usually wear cycling shorts & an 'UnderArmor' shirt under my 1-piece...makes taking it off much easier IMO, - my suit is a very tight fit.

    i usually wear veiw from running legings under my leathers as they wick away sweat & make it dead easy to get them off , last time i went to donnington it was so hot i just walked around in them all day rolled up, I got some funny looks but ......i did'nt care
