That's a lesson that will have to be learned the hard way more than likely. I doubt a barrage of facebook messages has ever changed someone's mind

Maybe take him to TMC and show him some of the motorcycle crashes with people who didn't have enough gear on haha

I am going to send him a friend request and give him a ultimatum of either start to wear gear OR I will unfriend him.

Who really gives a I mean if that's what makes him happy. I heard a guy say on the 4th of July he wouldn't hold a umbrella because it looks homosexual as he walked by me while I was holding an umbrella and my 9 month old to keep her dry. Didn't really bother me.

I don't think I would miss this dude either and I don't really have a hard core street image to protect naw wut im sayin

Yea I've never really understood why people feel the need to voice their opinion on gear. If it's a friend or family member I understand, but most people are going to do what they want anyways. I've noticed in my group of friends that ride that most all the guys that rode dirt wear their gear. We've been down in the dirt and gear saves your lol.

This is true. The dude above will never listen to anyone, he'll be defiant now even if he was unsure.

The exception is the person new to riding, they don't know if they want gear or not yet. They haven't thought about it. They need another POV to be able to make a fully informed decision...either way.

Yea that's very true as well.

I guess I'm use to the guys that perceive gear as being uncool and not manly. I have a friend that's like that. You know how are the going to see you with a helmet on type of .

So his opinions only white males have enough common sense to wear protective gear and that "real' riders don't need all that gear. Well call me Opie then, cause I know coco butter won't fade road rash. Don't worry everntually he'll have a nice checkerboard black and white body to match his bike.

He was half rigt though. Real Riders don't NEED all that gear, Real Riders wear it and ride so they don't have to need it.

I must be a white guy,

Fullface helmet Check
Full leathers for Moderate and up street rides Check
Kneepads ALWAYS check
Never owned a Busa or GSXR check
Rides exotic Vtwin Check

Now if I could only convince cops...

There's hope in educating new riders. While I've been riding off and on for 30 years, I never wore a jacket or gloves - only a helmet. It wasn't until I bought my ZX6 and, on this site, found out about track days and the required gear. Now I never ride without at least a helmet, gauntlet gloves, leather jacket, and racing boots. When I'm only going riding, and not errands, I usually wear my full leathers. I have MH to thank for that. Fortunately, I haven't had to test any of the gear yet. I'm also constantly inspecting my tires, brakes, cables, hoses, etc to make sure everything is in top shape.

Anyone remember the "Live to Ride, Ride to Die" website that was around a few years ago?
It was a UK or European site I think, showed all kinds of REALLY graphic pictures and stats about riding, gear, etc. I wish that was still around. My friend showed me that website the weekend I got my first bike, and I never rode without gear again.

I've always wanted to recreate that page.
