If you follow my Twitter you may have picked up on the fact that I ride motorcycles.
Great as my bike is, it doesn’t have a fuel gauge or a trip odometer, so writing down and keeping up with the last time I got fuel is pretty important, lest I get stranded on the side of a mountain with no gas. What does this sound like a job for? A PEN. And I can’t just use any pen, oh no no. This has to be some kind of special pen.
Right now, I’m on a motorcycle trip (which, combined with my moving and with my finishing up my last job, is the reason why there were no reviews this week and why there will be no notebook review today), which is the prime opportunity to test out a range of pens.
Yesterday I tested the Tombow Airpress all day, and today I’ll give the Lamy Pico a spin. I may not get to try all of these (and some of them, like the Capstick, probably aren’t suited to life as a motorcycle pen), but my goal is to be able to compare the Airpress, the Pico, the Uni Power Tank with a full day’s use each, and then a mix of the others during my last day on the trip. On Tuesday, I’ll write up a NO HOLDS BARRED PEN BATTLE for your education and enjoyment.
