I'm starting to lean that way as well. While on the subject, do you have any experience with how the 365 last fits? The only C&J I've tried on has been made for Brooks Brothers or Ralph Lauren, where my understanding is the sizing is not the same as in the UK. I found the 240 lasted shoes too narrow and the Ralph Lauren 325 lasted Marlow's a little tight in the toe box.
The 365 Last is incredibly generously sized. Most people are usually best served with taking a full size down (so if you were a 9D Us, taking a UK8). My feet are on the narrower side of D and I actually found that I could comfortably fit a size 1.5 down (I'm 8.5D Brannock and took a UK7) and still have plenty of room for thick socks as well.
9DUS=UK8, no? Do you mean UK7?
Continuing with OT musings regarding two-wheeled vee-hickles, I will be with enormous regret selling both of the following in the near future -
Yamaha V-Star 650cc - garaged in Sydney
Chinese "Honda Zoomer" copy - with 150cc instead of the Zoomer's paltry 50-odd - garaged in Shanghai
I've moved back to Oz so the Chinese scooter is now surplus to requiremenets. And much as I love that Yammy to death - it's so friggin' kewl - I hardly ever ride it. Seems pointless to own it. I've had my mid-life crisis moment and it's now time to move on and admit that old fuckers like me look stupid on badass hogs.
That scooter is awesome. I love the dual headlights.
Sorry, what I wrote is a little confusing. I meant the standard US UK conversion works for Islay (9DUS=UK8), not to apply the standard conversion and then size down.
Lotta bikers here...I dont have the bawls to get on one. I will just stick with being a typical Asian driver behind a so-called Sports sedan...
I'd like to get one to zip around the bay area. They're more fuel efficient, easier to park, etc. You've got to keep an eye out on the highways, though. California drivers are scary.
Bikes are not ideal family cars.
Growing up, the family vehicle stable consisted of: a sedan, a stationwagon, and any number of motorcycles. As a kid, my dad would take me for rides on the back of whatever bike he was working on at the time. Tons of fun. So they're great family vehicles in that regard. Then again, my mother never did stop being nervous about them. And my dad did crash a lot. And I did, too. So, yeah . . . maybe not . . .
stitchy would u wear the RLPL suit in darker denim? @Claghorn?
ummm, bro, you can buy yourself a nice Ural up here in MA. You would look killer in the new jacket, goggles, and wife in the side car. (strap the kids to the back rack if necessary)
and within a few weeks, you would be doing this...
Would not wear any suit in denim. Barf. Well maybe a SWD suit might be cool, but certainly nothing even bordering on MC.
you hate everything!!!
