I found them from time to time.
I rode motorcycles year round for several years in NY. Snow, ice, rain or shine.
I'm happy for you the world has bubble wrapped itself and concocted all the taxes on personal liberty.
Wear whatever protective equipment you feel necessary to enjoy your toy.
Better yet, stay in your house...you will be even safer there. =-)
You know I agree with you on your basic premise. But I have a problem with any MC rider denigrating or deriding another rider who chooses to gear up. That's just not cool at all.
Watch this and then tell me the first guy that crashed was a poser for wearing a helmet. Because that's the inference I'm getting from you. LiveLeak.com - Nasty bike crash
His brain would have been smashed flatter than hammered sh** if he had not been wearing his helmet. In fact, I'm sure he would have also liked some good gloves, etc, etc.
