Ok lads ... now what about nice fresh gloves ??

Mine farkin reaked a few days ago ... again ....

I recently has to buy a new set cause the old ones were SO bad I was getting tempted to ride without them ... not a good idea ...

So, the idea of making holes is out ... ta Phil, fark sometimes I'm a complete twat ... and fark off the lot of ya that are going to reply to the work 'sometimes' ... CANTS !!!

Now then.... where was I, oh yes, after the shite ride back cause of the rain, me mittens were that lovely slimey type .. and I knew they were going to pong .. and pong they did. Trying to 'air' them or 'dry' them in S'pore is a laugh ... to farkin humid ... so ... I've been stuckin em in the freezer over night for the last couple of nights ...

The theory is the smell is caused by shitey wee bacteria thingies, that are munching away on dead skin inside me mits ... as well as having a crack at the leather (more dead skin), and shitting everywhere !!!. The cold is ment to kill em off, or slow em down a stack at least .... and lads, it works ... kind of ... there is still a smell .. but it's about a third of what it was.

So then, now what ..... can I poor in some antibacterial talc, maybe some shoe deodorant, washing them in dettol .. ??

Lets be having your ideas chumys ...

P.S .. our club needs a dress 'code' .... I'm all for the Village People look meself !!

Five finger shuffle

You don't ride in the rain much then do ya?

Read this in a UK bike mag once....

"If they are leather with no lining, turn them inside out and stick them in in a cold place (fridge?) until dry. brush with a suede brush (just to get the inside all nice and fluffy again) then turn 'em inside out and put dubbin or nikwax on them.

If they are leather and lined, same applies, but dry the inside with yer girlies hairdryer instead of utting them in the fridge. Then, when dry, use a fabric deodorant (like your lid stuff), turn 'em inside out and apply dubbin or nikwax"

Or just buy a new pair.

I have some Diadoras that I got from the Arai boys, very impressed with them

Re: Five finger shuffle

Ride in the rain much? not if I can help it...Can't get the bike wet you know, might damage the wax job...

but couldn't help this one, got caught on the way back from PG, and you know what! The Bike did "melt" (actually, water got into on of the spark plug leads... )

Yes, the diadora does look good and pretty cheap, and was my main consideration until Joe seduced me with an $80 "Not Really a Sporting Motorcycle Product" brand...pretty cool for its price.

Use 'em and chuck 'em...
