    I have the Wolf ones and are like pyjamas over cowhide. I paid £700 but there are some deals to be had at the moment so shop around. I know Bike Gear in Leeds have them on special and may do a set for £500. Give them a ring and tell them the bald beared one sent you. I was in yesterday so he should know who you mean. If you want a run out to try them then I'm sure we could arrange digs if you need to stop over.

    Kangaroo leathers are great. They seem much more supple than regular ones. They do come up occasionally on eBay. I really rate them, and so does everyone I ride with. Just wish I had the cash to get some ;)

    My leathers are regular ones which I bought a while ago now. I'll certainly be replacing them with Skippy hide next time though. Tried some on in a shop. Far lighter and more supple off the peg to!

    Cheers

    It's worse than that now. I've put on 2.5 stone since packing the fags in. I really have to breathe in hard to fasten up the trousers. I'll be getting the push bike out soon so I can loose some weight for our Jockland raid.
     
  10. I got a £1100 Arlen Ness skippy suit for £650 cause it was last seasons colours. You get some really good deals in the January sales. It's a lot lighter and more flexible than my moo leathers. I couldn't wear it for 4 months after I bought it though .. too cold as it has more holes in than the UK's finances.

    Can anyone recommend anyone in Wes Yorkshire who can let out my leather jeans. After packing the fags in it's a real trauma getting into them. Although I can just about fasten them it's going to be an uncomfortable week in Jockland :shock:

    Clucking bell, I've just had a look on Google maps and it's near Wibsey. I'm going to my mates in Wibsey on Sunday to pickup his new Ducati Monster he's just bought. He's had his licence for 13 years but never had a bike and he's scared to ride it home. I'll give him a call tomorrow and see if he can do owt for me.
