    B/Day Surprise for me.

    My wife surprised me on Thursday sneakily booking a holiday for herself.
    So when I got up at the usual time it was a bit of a shock as I thought she may be feeling ill.
    Not to worry she decided that it would be nice to stay home and share a day with me on my birthday that was pretty cool.
    We went for a M/C ride and decided to go to AMX as my Shoei is getting a bit long in the tooth, we did order new inserts for it though.
    So she said pick out a helmet you would like, it came down to a Shoei and the HJC, I chose the latter with the smoked screen was $1599/Aud.
    Came with an extra big rear scoop (Not for me left it off) pinlock and tear offs, bought a smoked screen as I have always ridden with one.
    I am very fortunate to have such a person in my life that makes my days as happy as can be this one was no exception but just that bit more special.

    *Plus the MotoGP are in America at the moment so well timed I reckon*

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    Nice piece, very generous of her. I rode a bike when I was 16/17, a helmet was a "Bell" helmet and cost $30 or so... The price doesn't surprise me now though.
    Regards, Jim

    Think the full carbon fibre ones set you back around the $2.5 - $3K/Aud mark.

    Yep. My first was a Shoei full face. Price was $250 in the '80s. I've got it in the attic and it weights a ton. Things are different, eh?
