Re: I smell like gas...
Between the pinhole on my gas cap venting a bit, and those rubber grips (which I really should replace) and the under-helmet sweat, when I walk into the house after a long bike ride my wife sends me straight to the shower.
She has never once discouraged me from riding, even after my one accident. But if I want to sleep in the same bed with her, I must erase any trace of bike stink. I can live with that rule; I'm usually in the mood for a shower at that point anyway.
"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
