The bad weather had been getting me down. On the few days that the weather was suitable for riding, I couldn’t go. The weather finally improved last week, and it thankfully carried through the entire weekend. I was really itchy to get back on the bike, and also to try out my new gear. I had my old riding boots repaired, the outsole had come unglued, gotten some Dainese Delta leather pants (perforated), and also added a Dainese Super Speed Pelle C2 jacket (also perforated) to my armamentarium. Honestly, I had planned on only getting the jacket, but I ended up getting some great deals, as Dainese had just announced the D1 Super Speed.
