--------

areas of on the jacket that is loose: Alpinestars Stunt jacket fits snug all around. My Frank Thomas XTii jacket is a little loose everywhere.

areas of the jacket that is tight: Tight - nowhere... see above.

Describe the type of person you are and your lifestyle. In a sentence or two? That's difficult. I am a living person who does his best to balance responsibility and play.

What is your general day to day philosophy and priorities in life? ... serious questions, huh? Don't sweat the small stuff. Balance fun and responsibility. Live for myself. Gotta see the forest and the trees.

What do you like to do to stay happy. Socialize with friends, moto, drink, succeed in work/school

Describe how you feel and what would you do, if a car enters your right of way? I would feel like that is typical cager behavior and I would get out of the way.

How do you prevent cars from entering your right of way? Generally try to avoid situations where this can arise. If it does, I always try to have a way out. cagers... can't trust 'em!

Do you like to ride with other riders and where do you position yourself when riding with them? Not so much actually. I would prefer to ride with people I know, so that actions are more predictable and expected.

What type of gear do you like to wear and how do you think others perceive you in it? Helmet, leather jacket, gloves are the norm. Although recently I've been telling myself that I need to wear my boots and get some pants that I can ride in on the regular. How do people perceive me? They wonder "Hot ! Who is that sexy/cool dude over there?"

On the freeway, where do you like to place yourself, where in the lane, and why? On the very edge of the lane, preferably next to an empty lane. That way a can both see ahead better and have a quick escape to the next lane.

How do you react to random riders who ride next to you or who want to race you? I don't mind riding with the random person (normal riding). If the random person tries to race me, I flip their kill switch. Not really...

Describe in detail what would you do, if traffic starts to come to a stop all of a sudden? I slow down using the front brakes and the engine, watch my mirrors for people behind me, and make use of my escape if necessary.

How many miles have you put on the bike? 8k in the year since I've had it. Most of those miles have been in the last 6 months or so.

If your answer is 10,000+ miles, when did you feel that you were no longer a beginner and know your bike’s limits? , I still feel like a beginner. Always will. I did, however, become comfortable with my bike a long time ago. A combination of commuting, riding like a dumbass (not anymore), and track helped me out.

When there are cars around what pace do you choose to ride? About 10 mph faster or so. But I do that when I cage too.

How often do you take your bike for a ride? 4-6 days a week. (mostly commuting)
