my wrists, on the other hand(s.)

i've crashed on my skateboard too many times. i don't wanna call it arthritis, because once you start believing you're old, you get older quick. but after long rides, my fingers don't work too well.

after a day of racing, it's hard to hold a beer and a cigarette. until about the 6th beer. then i'm ok...
I think Bairdco here nailed it. I don't have a Brooks, but my leather saddle wasn't cheap. It's way more comfy than I would have given it credit for, being that it has no padding. I gotta say: my butt NEVER hurts. And if I know I'll be riding for a while, I wear my biking gloves.
No saddle sores. No numb hands. Just pure riding satisfaction.

"There is nothing wrong with wanting a motorbike that is an extension of your personal taste and fashion sense; if you must ride somewhere, I say do it with style!"
