Respro Bandit face mask
 
I had one of these for years until it got threadbare.
Just had one for Christmas in plain black and I recommend them.
You need to be able to fasten the tie ends behind your neck.
They have an inbuilt filter layer for pollution.
The thick alloy nose clip sits tight on the bridge of your nose and the draw string
pulls it tight under your chin. I wear mine inside a full face lid with comfort.
Open face lid should be no problem.

No, Ginger was a Rear Gunner, I was the Bomb Aimer..... Biggles was a twat, always in the shower with Ginger, so much so that some people called him Ginger Beer, can't think why though......:eek:

I wore silk inner glovers under my leather gloves on the coldest winter days.

Tried them when I was younger ........... absolute rubbish made no difference at all (at least not for me)

I can remember when I was a youngster I rode a 250 oilfield in all weathers and my very thick hide gloves where permanently partially closed simply because I used to hang down and put either hand around the pipe to try and warm them up.

Went out one afternoon, nice and sunny and rode out to the Saltbox, Biggin Hill to meet some friends. Stayed till late and it was frosty and muggins had not bothered with his gloves. Riding along holding one hand at a time next to the engine was bloody hard going, especially through the country lanes. My gloves ended the same as yours when, escaping a gang of Mods in Battersea Park, I rode over a small wall and found a 3 foot drop the other side. The exhaust pipe fell off and I picked it up with my gloves on and threw it straight into the sidecar. It was really scary for onlookers seeing the M21 throwing a foot long exhaust flame under the petrol tank..... Being young and stupid I thought it looked cool....:eek:

Everyone used to swear blind that wearing silk inner gloves kept your hands warm, I could never tell because my hands were always freezing cold.

LOL! That's going back some, I had my first taste of bikes by being taken to the Saltbox ( i lived just down the road in Leaves Green as kid) by my neighbour across the road, I was probably about 10, mind you I am glad my first experience of being taken up the road on the back of my uncles Tunderbird, terified me a first! but didnt put me off.

Wasn't there a Saltbox or Saltpot Cafe on the A38 somewhere, in Derby I think?

HOS 31-12-2017 11:27 AM

Crazy Daisy's was the most famous local biker cafe on the A45 just east of Cov.
I never went there myself before it got burned down. Its stayed burned down for a very long time.

No idea, the club I belonged to only met at Biggin Hill. The clubhouse was a military (wooden hut) with a 25 KG bomb as a doorstop. It was not far from the entrance to the RAF airfield and the civilian one next door which we used as a dragstrip......:D
