Its your hide, do what you will. IMO it is never a good idea to ride without proper gear. Road rash sucks!

Wrong place to ask !!! Alot here will say your a squid whatever the that means ?? Losers. My opinion...the choice is yours as long as you think about the possible consequences. One day I was riding in shorts cause I felt like it, some dumb on a harley not wearing a helmet says to me at the red lite..."Hey wears your pants???" I was like??? Where's your helmet ?? Too me...Too each his own...unless your out to be like someone else or impress someone else and besides...who cares what others think !!!

Squid is an irresponsible motorcyclist; it is generally associated with a new or reckless motorcyclist seen riding erratically and/or beyond his or her capabilities, often without appropriate riding gear.


A contraction of squirreley and kid or squished and kid, or an acronym for "Stupidly Quick, Underdressed, Ignorant and Dangerous" or "Stupidly Quick, Underdressed and Imminently Dead"

I use to ride around with no jacket. I did have my lid, pants, boots, and gloves just cuz it was hotter than . But I dont want to be in that situation or regret in case something happens. So even though Im in leather, I still wear it.

We rode to Galveston this afternoon, saw alot of people out! Most had on some gear, and some had on no gear!

I saw this one dude on a busa. Shorts, t-shirt and flip flops no helmet on his head, but he was holding it with one hand on his tank!! And this was on 45 going 80+. Now that is a squid!

I ride to work alot and it is only a couple miles from my house! I usually ride in capri, tennies, shirt sometimes jacket and helmet! I did that for a couple weeks til I got a second degree burn on my leg from the exhaust!! Lesson learned the hard way! I still have to wear regular pants, but they are long and I wear my boots with tennies in my backpack, jacket and lid! Always!

I'm always wearing boots, jacket, race gloves, and a helmet no matter what, though I only wear normal jeans. I went without a jacket once running to a friends house a few minutes down a fairly deserted street. . . and hated it. I had a nagging feeling in the back of my head that something bad was gonna happen without the jacket.:eh:
