Yes! The IR 8080s I believe were a Japan release, very rare. If I’m not mistaken- They also have the cork sole vs. the mini lug, which are more comfortable to wear.

The minilugs I've not yet tried; my IRs are the light tan colour (I'd call it amber, but I think that's what RW call their mid-brown colour) have the older-style cork sole. It's wearing well eight or so years in. I was disappointed when they switched to the lugs, though they look flat enough that it don't compromise the look.

It’s that time of year here when you need a jacket in the morning but it’s too hot after work. Unless you’re hopin on the bike with your best bud. I’m gonna try and wear the hell outta this 118 this year.

My dad had a couple of Urals years ago - one like this (but all black), and then later one without a sidecar that had body panels factory-modded to make it look a bit more like a Triumph of the era - though still with the Beemer style engine. No sidecar on the latter. Nice bikes. Sidecar on the black one was on the other side, being UK-based, though clearly not made specifically for that market (body shape and entrance-cutaway not changed, so more of a climb in when it was bolted to the other side of the bike). Rare beasts over here.

I just can't get this one to photograph well, but I've been wearing my new ( late 80's ) Wranglers today.

I'm happy enough with it for the price I payed, but I've got a sherpa lined mate to this one that's much better and one of my favorite jackets.
This one had so many stray threads I had to snip off, probably made by some horse's ass on a Friday ( note the pins I added, the horse's ass that made it, a hammer for the work they didn't do properly, and the lady they were probably thinking about instead of their work)

It was pretty tight… I wore it to go out for dinner one night (pic shared taken that day) and could barely strap my seat belt… almost sprained my shoulder. that’s when I knew it wasn’t right for me. I am at peace with it, and also knowing that it went to a great guy in California who rides a Ducati year long wearing it! It’s having a better life
Yeah that’s cool. Gotta figure out what you’re wheel house is!
