Glad your friend is ok floyd, is it the same guy on the red r6 that went down on the smr few weeks ago, barley scratched the right side of it?
Yeah same person. He was not even a mile from his house when it happened.

Sorry about your friend, Floyd - I know when Syvanna had the skin graft it was more painful than any of the other surgeries, or even the initial wound. Nothing could touch her thigh for about three days.

I hate to see anybody in that much pain - it's just not worth it. I have a true mesh that lets every bit of air in. Plus I've seen the man version crash (twice) and hold up remarkably well.

PLUS - I only paid about $60 for mine; $70-80 for the men's. Completely worth it to save our skin.

whoa whoa whoa, Harley riders can actually use thought processing skills? who knew ?!?!
was just in Austin for the weekend. maybe 30% of riders (mostly cruisers) with a HELMET on. pathetic. I wouldn't be shocked if that city has as many motorcycle deaths per year as houston does , and we are 5x's as big easily.

This is what I was wearing when asked was I hot. But you know, it is what it is. Nevertheless, I hope the guy on the beltway has a speedy recovery.
