ive been down before and gear has saved my life, but i still like the wind in my hair ya know. you ride a motorcycle because your attracted to the freedom you feel and the rush you get. you dont have to bake yourself in an oven of full leather to "be safe" just keep your eyes open. every accident is avoidable. as a great man once said "It's my body I'll do what I want"- eric cartman

You'll pay for that it with that logic. And I totally disagree that every accident is avoidable. It is impossible to avoid situations at which you have no control over.

Motorcycling is the ultimate convertible. The freedom to have wind rushing all around you. Gear or no gear, when it is time to go, you got to go. If a person deems to enjoy riding without protection let him/her be. It is dangerous on two wheels around town but that doesn't stop you from getting on one does it? You have been warned that you are an organ donor when you are on two wheels, what happen? Did you listen?

could be anything from dust/oil/leaves on the road to a DD hitting you out of no where. There is a reason why in Europe you never see people without gear on.

That is just an excuse to raise premiums. Just like gas and everything else. Someone or something will get the blame and justify for the increases.

BS supplu and demand is the reasoning behind the increase in gas prices my friend and no need to get an economics degree to figure that one out. More bikes with increasing amounts of accidents will increase your premiums:eh:

Here is the way I see it:

Every one has a different threshold and sets their own acceptable level of risk. The guy that wears all protective gear may think the idiot that only wears a helmet, jacket, and gloves is not too bright. The the guy that wears a helmet, jacket, and gloves make think the guy that only wears a helmet is not too bright. The guy that wears only a helmet will think the guy that wears a ballcap turned backwards is not bright at all.

When I started riding, I didn't go every long till I got a full set of gear. Of course the helmet was always a minimum requirement. I didn't wear everything all the time. I was one of those that would dress down if it was "too hot". Luckily I was wearing everything when I had my first crash, which argueable one might say that had a not had a helmet I would be dead and if I didnt have pants with the knee pad inside might have faced several knee reconstruction surgeries. I only escaped with a broken clavicle.

At some point shortly after that, I began to wear all gear all the time, even if it was 98 degrees in august. I just began to feel really naked and vulnerable without it. I am sure it had something to do with the crash I had and the dozen or so videos I later found later found on the internet of moto crashes--which IMO should be required viewing for anyone getting their license...

The truth is, the only one who can convince you to wear gear is you. I don't think it means people are stupid but that they are ignorant. I don't care how good of a riider you are, there is always the possibility to go down or get run over by a __FILL_IN_THE_BLANK__. I rather sweat a little on the hot days than spend one moment longer in the hopital than I have to. I hate doctors.

There are true idiots in the world. If you do not yet believe that, just visit this webpage:


http://idiotswithguns.blogspot.com/

You may be a greatest rider in the world but from darwins point of view you didn't die because of how good/bad of a rider you; instead, because you didn't wear gear.

Well, saw the guy again tonight at the very same intersection in the same riding apparel but it was dark and couldnt get a pic. Camera wouldnt bring it up.

Anyways, just wanted to say my word about it and im sure with this dumbass riding around trying to look cool, we will be reading about another bike fatality soon.
My boyfriend and I were talking about people who ride without helmets one day and we came to the conclusion that they bought the bike just to be cool...not b/c they truely enjoy riding. Who knows...but that's my hypothesis.
