Yup, the warm weather brings out the shorts, t-shirts and flip flops...saw several out this weekend and even the commute into work this morning on 59. It is not even hot yet!

I've done it once or twice.

Never feels right, even if you're "just going down the street".

I dont see why some people are already doing it. During the middle of the summer I'm guilty of no jacket but thats about it. I've wore shorts to run down the road and stuff but why wear shorts if your going to be riding for a while? The heat from the motor is worse on your legs.

I know how the sportbike riders do it. But I would like to know how the guy on my end of town with the green KZ is able to do it as well as cruisers able to do it.. Without burning their legs..

It's a HOT thing. Not everybody wears atgatt, but that's not for me to judge.

I have pics of Ween on no-pants Friday on the bike... no shorts, either.
