    Dude, have you ever seen what happens to spandex when it touches a hot ex. pipe or motor. If just for safety (or fasion statement) wear leather.

    Hey, don't make fun of cardboard fairings. If it weren't for cardboard fairings, I'd have no fairings at all.;)

    Your wife was probably right, but whether she was or not, I'm willing to bet that she's from a town with a population of less than 5,000.:)

    I wear a cape while I ski, my MB clothing will be my cape, sandals (maybe with socks, I'm a true Nor' wester) Jeans or Shorts, a humorous T-shirt and a wind breaker.

    Here in Victoria there has been a recent motorcycling safety TV ad campaign.

    A trauma surgeon ... sums things up after a few motocycle crash/skid/injury shots grab the attention

    ...take that guy says the surgeon, pointing to nasty leg gravel-burn and the rest...

    "he's got months of skin-graft surgery ahead... in and out of hospital ...if he'd worn leathers not denim he'd be out of here tomorrow ... and pretty well good as new inside weeks...


    full leather drag for playing motogp on xbox 360 might be an overcook...

    spandex, we don't need no stinking spandex.

    if you have grease under you nails and have ever been called poindexter, your in the right place.

    You're welcome to wear spandex if you like but if you happen to break down while wearing spandex don't ask me to double you back. ROTFLMAO!
