Shopping Sep. 14th, 2002 05:53 pm
Being back in work (and 5 miles out of town) means I have to do my shopping on the weekend... so that was today - went down to Mike's Bikes on Mill Road, but they didn't have their high-power lights in stock yet for this winter, so wandered over to Howes (assuming they'd have much the same situation), but they had a decent cateye system (this one) for 60 quid, so I picked that up. Then on to Borders, where I met a partially-dead nevla and had a quick coffee, then picked up a copy of The Devil's Dictionary and went into Carphone Warehouse to look at the 7650. Not bad, but 200 quid to upgrade? I'll have to think about that.

Then... I had to go buy a suit. Yes, I've become a complete CorpWhoreGoth. But that doesn't matter, 'cos I can make a suit look sexy ;) (not that I've managed to take a pic that proves this, unfortunately). I have, however, managed to take a pic of my bike, which now looks absurdly overgadgeted, mainly due to the overly-complex mounting system for the lights and switch unit.

Now to KSR for booze, and Gardi's for a kebab.

That is indeed even more overgadgeted than it was already, puss :) although there are now more places to throw towels on in a hurry! ;) ~ducks flying e-curses~

Oooh, I haven't dipped into that in about four years. Thanks for reminding me of it :o)

Was that Truth or Fiction? Also, where are the photos of you in new suit, eh? *g*

As I said, there are no pics, because I can't get a decent one.

It's Truth that has all the lighting and so on, as it's the more used bike.

Don't buy the 7650! It's too big, you'll regret it. Well, that's my justification for not buying it.

You have my commiserations re the suit. I'm hoping that my next job won't require one as we speak...

The 7650 is only a little larger than my 6210 - it's really the price that's putting me off for the moment.

The suit is, fortunately, occasional use only - for use when visiting customers. It's still jeans, boots and t-shirt most of the time.

If you really really really can take the size, but the price is a problem, the 3650 may be the answer (when it's launched in January) - since it's a 3xxx it should be quite cheap.
