I had one...it leaked. The dealer made it right...no complaints..but I just never had the nerve to try another. I'm told they do need re-waxing from time to time. In some ways I think they are more nostalgic than [useful] ? the modern textiles are hard to beat.
Yea when was the last "Scramble" you attended on your street machine?
lol yeah, that's kinda what I was getting at with form-over-function... you know, if it's all about the nostalgia but for the sake of practicality whether modern textile jackets are just more sensible?
