I was reading a thread on the Facebook page of the Triumph Owners MCC about investing in a textile jacket and it made me think about how long I have been wearing my current jacket. I tried to cast my mind back then do a search, coming up with June 2008!
Was it really that long ago? Amazing. Maybe I am also due for a new jacket?
The FT Aqua has been amazingly waterproof and continues to be so. It was black when I bought it but in exposed areas like the sleeves and front it has faded to a more dark browny-red co;lour. But in areas like under the arms and the back, it is still black!
I have no idea how many miles it has racked up. But I guess it is in the environs of 80000. In all weathers from very cold to high temps in Spain and of course, lots of rain.
So? Maybe I'll wait a little longer then....
