Come on dude. You just don't like being labeled a squid though a squid you be.
You keep reverting to being close to home... Once again, I ride with full gear to the gas station around here.

Nah, I can accept being labeled a squid. Not everything's in black and white though and that's my issue with the 'squid' label.

I hope to never make it to the hospital but if I DO make it there... it will be 100% my fault. Even if I get slammed by a drunk driver... still 100% my fault. As a rider, it is my responsibility to see it coming even when I CAN'T see it coming...
dude, that is still a bullshit reason. lots of gloves are very thin and form fitting and will allow for hand communications. and even beyond that, develope alternate signals for common riding problems. just so you know, just cause we have our hearing does not mean we can hear each other with loud motorcycles and helmets on. we all have hand signals we use to let other riders know we need to stop. it isn't that hard, try again

Just do me a favor and get on a bicycle and pedal as fast as you can and then jump off onto some concrete. Then report back to us how it feels. Then imagine multiplying that by whatever speed you will go down at on a motorcycle.

I have personally had two accidents of which my full faced helmet, gloves, pants, boots, KNEE PADS have saved my skin. Literally...

I bet you probably weave in and out of traffic because you think you look cool.

I speak perfectly well. I hope I never meet you but you and I will have no communication issues at the hospital.

FYI, it is illegal to have your patients write stuff down. You MUST get an interpreter IMMEDIATELY.

it's almost easier to argue politics than why to or why not to wear gear. some people think it's cooler to wear shorts...ever wonder why people in the desert wear long sleeves....it's to keep the fn sun off of their skin!! go to college, read a book, view the internet for something other than and learn a little...if you want to ride naked, go for it...doesn't matter to me...ride it like you stole it...(but we all know it's financed with a credit card and not insured!!) have fun

it is not illegal, idk who told you that. if you can't use your hands, then there isn't much need for an interpreter is there.

plus there is no interpeter for people on the vent. they have to write down to communicate.

Now... YOU sound like a squid in hospitals. The interpreter is also there to communicate what YOU are saying to the PATIENT. Most Deaf people can at least utter something vocally... it's understanding what you're saying that's the issue.

Try making the potty sign when you're wearing your gloves.

Is that the one where the guy bails from a wheelie and hits the curb with his foot?

exactly. mainly because people who do not know sign, just point to the crotch. you are making excuses. if you don't want to wear gloves then don't. don't blame it on some chicken excuse.

Sure I could.

Let me try to go in a different direction... believe me when I say that the glove issue comes up ALL THE TIME when we discuss our rides. We, of all people, understand better than others that our hands and our eyes are the most important thing to us. That being said... Basic hand signals and sign language... it's somewhat similar to someone trying to utter a phrase in Portuguese when they speaks Spanish. It results in being far more confusing than it actually is. It all comes back to language and ASL is a language. I think that most Deaf riders would prefer to wear gloves but it simply isn't all that feasible when riding in a group.

well, you are correct on that aspect. but for a pt. to write something down is not illegal, it is illegal NOT to provide you with an interpreter. there is a difference
