Or get a few cracked ribs and a helmet that saves your face while suited to make it really sink in that ATGATT is the way to go. If I was booted and suited at the time I'd be even uglier than I am now!I think you only need to have gravel scraped out of you once. But yeah Dan, well said.
Heh! A friend of mine on facebook was lamenting the fact that certain individuals rode in flipflops. I replied that there was absolutely nothing wrong with riding in flipflops. It's crashing in flipflops that's problematic.This is just a joke thread, but my wife was talking to a customer today and they were discussing his riding gear. He threw out the phrase, "Dress For The Slide, Not For The Ride." I thought that was pretty clever.
And that, boys and girls, is exactly why I never ride in shorts! EVER!!!I need 1 more post so I can add a picture
:character00271: Damn 15 post requirement... It's kind of a pain when you're quoting someone... I understand why it's there, but it's still a pain.I need 1 more post so I can add a picture
I dunno—the test seemed pretty easy to me... ;-)They're obviously competent enough to undergo and pass the licensing examination to ride a motorcycle, so they're competent enough to decide what they want to wear when they ride.
I had a moment like that about a year ago when I was riding home from work in the dark, cruising at a sedate pace along the animal-infested highway when 3 sport bikes came up from behind and screamed around me at probably 80-90 miles an hour. A girl was perched on the back of each bike and I don't really recall what they were wearing from the waist down, but from the waist up it was just a windbreaker and a helmet.I too believe in Darwinism.....but only for the guy or gal operating the motorcycle....I have a huge problem when I see a young woman lets give her that much sitting on the back wearing nothing more than his old helmet. Just so he can get her home to have his way with her or such.....it just burns my arse. Yes I have a young daughter, lets call her a woman too now I guess at 17. She knows the risks of not wearing the correct gear and what I will do to the both of them IF I catch her on the back of anyone's bike ....period! Sorry to rant but the thought of her sliding down the road is frightening.....augh!
When she first started riding a mini bike to be like her dad lets say, I showed her the road rash queen and made her read her story. That worked wonders! Google it and show all who ride in standard school clothes. Well only the ones you love that is.
