Dring dring! It’s Nichola, the dazzling head of marketing at Adelaide Insurance, on the phone with the thrilling news that the helmets from Schuberth and the motorcycle clothing from Triumph have arrived at their office.Tell her to make sure Sam Geddis, the MD of Adelaide who’s joining us for the first two weeks of the trip, doesn’t wander around the office wearing his helmet and frightening the staff, and she says it’s too late.Half an hour later, Colin and I are in Sam’s office trying on all the gear and feeling like boys who’ve got a new Action Man outfit for Christmas.Except this time we’re the Action Men. I think.Anyway, it’s all superb, especially the helmets, which are incredibly comfortable and quiet. I said THEY’RE REALLY QUIET! What? Hello?
