    wow, that's traumatic and looked expensive, well to be positive at least covid is on the way out and businesses and services are hopefully open there. it's a sign to go to truly classic horse and cart man, at least horses can move away to safety when things look dangerous around them...

    Thanks guys, no onw was hurt, both my car and my GF's car are totaled, luckily we both had insurance and they are covering it.
    I spent today bucking the tree and removing all the parts i had added to the Lada to mount them on the new one when it arrives, sould have the new car in 6 weeks.
    It's has been pretty crap but at least we have had a good outcome.

    Edit: the incident itself was a reallly close call, my GF came home with takeaway, she parked her car, got in the house, sat at the table and the tree fell.
    Literally 3 minutes after she had parked her car!

    Yes. Or that is what I understand of Freewheelers and their use of the "Rude Black" leather for this jacket.

    It is also interesting to learn from photos and from people who have handled jackets from different years that the leather batches differ.

    Be very careful if this jacket starts telling you to eliminate other “inferior” jackets and their wearers.
    What a beauty!

    Wouldn't get a LW in anything but this skin anymore! It's incomparably nicer than HH.
