Between banging up some Leica gears while carrying it
in a bike tank case and banging up my body while
carrying it in a shoulder bag, I'll elect to bang up
the Leica gears again time. Sometimes body parts are
not replaceable in situations of an aftermath of a
wipeout on a motorcycle, whereas Leicas are still
replaceable, even vintage ones.
