    It's getting big, there are now 4 food stands. I couldn't even get a parking space round the front. By the time I left it was spilling out on to the road.

    I saw a couple that I like, but couldn't carry anything home on the bike.
    I'm gonna have the same problem at MCN Peterbro' on Sunday unless I take a bag, so I might sling the US30 on.

    Thats the thing ordering online.
    I've got a J&S Accessories near me, so I use them to get an idea of fit then go and buy it online if it's cheaper; I did ask them to proce match once but the guy behind the counter was having none of it. :confused:

    I'm sure that happens all the time. They had a couple of nice jackets in, although none in my size. I particularly liked the ones that didn't look like a bike jacket, the real problem was that they really are like a normal jacket except with armour. They didn't look like they would last 2 secs in a spill, so I stumped up a bit more and went for one made of stronger material.

    This is the one I liked the look of the most, but I suspect that it's cheap simply because it has little in the way of actual protection.

    Yeah that does look nice but I agree that it looks very flimsy material.

    Oddly I normally get some discount or something free whenever I shop at J&S. Admittedly it is normally when spending a fair bit, but they normally move a bit.

    Alwayd found SBS to be very good with returns. Think it is free as well if you spend a certain amount.

    It's probably to get you out of the store quickly since that unfortunate incident with the peep holes drilled in the ladies changing room wall :D
