The forest was shrinking daily but the trees kept voting for the axe as its handle was made of wood and they thought it was one of them.

I saw some decent quality ones in Mr. DIY and even had XXL size. Only downside was they were an army camo colour.

OMG it is only water , which we mere mortals have in our bodies approximately 70%. As long as important stuff does not get wet why worry. In the rainy season I always carry and umbrella and a Zip Lock plastic bag to pop in important stuff if I am out .

I remember the good old days back home when it was raining and too bloody cold to go out we would curl up and watch a movie. Here it's still hot when raining so no excuse to remain indoors as KP said it's only water. I always carry a bar of soap with me in rainy season saves on the electric bill but can shock onlookers

thers nay war i nay bendoon ta pak op mi serp if tho wa aroond .. ye slip us a croppler

Back to rain capes .. lots for sale in the main supermarkets .. dead cheap (start at 50bt) but crap quality and last only a few outings before need replacing .. spend more and get a good one that will last. (not made in China) last one i bought was 300 bt many moons ago from Bobay would be still ok if i could find it.

No I do not ride on a two wheeled death machine, I have a brain, however if one is riding a motorbike, then appropriate clothing and protection should always be worn,. if that includes a rain cape flapping around hindering your view of mirrors, then go for it , whatever turns the m/cyc brigade on .
It seems these days as long as you have a mask, that seems to be the best protection from someone coughing at 50 kmph, does nothing of you stop suddenly but then your head ( empty ) can deal with that ….lol

Whenever I take to 2 wheels I always ensure I wear a condom, after all its Thailand FFS so best to be protected always
Sorry DM if you are reading this again I'm off topic

No Surgeon said wow they are impressive and will require extra TLC and additional hands to control them, if gold pated would have been 15000
