  2. What an excellent question Carri!
    I went to a public loo after a long sweaty ride recently and low and behold I couldn't get the damn things back up (which is way worse than not being able to get them down!)
    Anyone have an answer????

  3. 37 and wearing leathers - that’s completely bonkers.

    On hot days Asphalt is my preferred exfoliant :LOL:

    You poor bugger. I got myself some summer gear for the 30+ days - draggins & mesh jacket with a wet T-shirt underneath. No solution, sorry.

  6. wear a rashie, like the surfer type one, doesn't add to the heat buildup and the leathers tend to slide over it ....

    either that or a can of spray lubricant :LOL: :LOL: :LOL:
    Virgin Olive Oil perhaps :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    forgive me I'm on drugs .. but they are legal

    the trick to removing and reinstalling leathers is to become a contortionist.

  9. You guys suck! :LOL:
    This is serious! Don't laugh- it is a fair dinkum question!
    Apart from having no skin left after a fall- what options are there?

  10. That's the exact reason why I didn't buy leathers. I put them on. They were snug. I got a bit warm and wriggled for 5 minutes just to get the left sleeve off far enough so that I could pull it off with my right hand. The pants were difficult as well. Anything other than leather is the answer. Its either that or hit the a/c for ages until you cool down.
