No... I only said the moto leather is lighter/softer/grainier
Got my black lamb 4 zip moto today. Pics to come. Very satisfied. One interesting feature is that the leather feels significantly different than that on my black lamb collared moto. The CM feels thicker, heavier, and smoother. This one thinner, lighter, and softer. There is also a visible grain on the new moto leather, as well as a little veining in a few places; after significant wear of the CM including in wet conditions, I haven't seen a trace of either nor could I...

Don't travel much?
The T1 looks great. Synthese - how does the lamb suede compare to the calf?
