Solracer, I hate to say it, but as an admin of this site, you create bias...and when you do that, people do not want to associate with that...it drives riders away...which means, only a select few will want to do certain meets, rides, events, etc, regardless of your personal views...just something to think about...

makes no sense, as the shorts have nothing to do with the rider...put marquez in shorts and you wouldnt ride with him...100...

It gives you a sense of how responsible of a person he is.

blows me away that this post has OVER 5000 views yet that doesn't reflect anything near the amount of riders on here...too many people are trying to put this vs. that...if you honestly believe that my shorts and tennis shoes are going to put you in danger, you should think again...we should do this instead...

List your profession and I bet there is a positive correlation to what you do and what you post...LOL

MH was built because other sites at the time were biased towards track only and older guys who were a bit grumpy. MH is meant for anyone and everyone. No matter what they ride or how they ride it. There are many of us who choose to ride with only a select group of people we know and trust.

People of any style of riding or gear choices are always welcome to post rides and go on rides (unless certain leaders request gear that said rider chooses not to wear.

No bias here.

I really think you are taking this personal or at least the wrong way.

It aint personal.

I love this thread. It has all the makings of a really bad low budget movie.

Is it just me or have the lines or definitions between a "meet" and a "ride" been blurred together.
If you look back at the title of this thread it says " meet up". Had everyone that attended, ridden individually to the lunch spot wearing the same attire as they did Saturday, and the only photos were of people sitting around a table, the commentary of this thread would be very different.
Do we need to have documented clarification between the two so people know what to wear? Seems silly.

Since he posted it as a "Ride", I would take that as needing to wear whatever gear I have.
I did however consider wearing shorts or a swimsuit to Galveston last Saturday. I didn't, but I thought about it.
