Nothing here... I've got FOMO...

And rightly so.

The 'Readers' Wives' section this month is phenomenal.

The back cover ... Invisibility cloak?

John Sherlock, international man of mystery.

He was wearing a black gilet over a bright yellow jacket, and my camera couldn't cope with the yellow. Looks as though it just interpolated the background - I never noticed :facepalm:

Dale's photo shows how he looked: https://flic.kr/p/CWAmsS

:D
I was wondering how it happened. Green screening in more glamorous models, double exposures...
Now to actually read it. I've been really enjoying the new look version

Yeah, when Dean sent it to me I was baffled, not seen anything like that before.

EDIT - Just got my copy. Err... yeah... the effort of the volunteers is appreciated but this whole helmet thing can fuck right off. In the bin it goes.

I was interested to read the story about Tom Hatton and his ride to Portugal, as I rode with him on my first ever (or was it second?) 300 and remember him telling me about his friend. Good bloke!

Looks like it was taken on a camera with an HDR mode which takes two frames at different exposure levels and stitches them together to hide the overexposed parts. Which works great as long as the subject isn't moving!

My copy of Arrivée arrived today.
I think it's great!
The invisibility cloak is amusing and the pedant in me can get picky but it's always picky.
Great read. Love the paper quality!

Thanks a million, team!

No, it was the green. All the other photos of riders taken at the same time with the same settings have all arms, heads etc present and correct: https://flic.kr/p/ZVL9Yv

When was the last issue? I've not moved an home and membership is up to date, not had a copy for months.
