Do yourselves a favor and don't bother riding with us if u feel that my attire is going to make u die, wreck, or put u in harms way.

The fact that this thread is still going is the same bases that only a select few of riders in the forums actually ride with other new riders. If it weren't for the Brenham ride weekly, this site would have no actionable riding with 20 plus riders, yet, others like myself try and make it bigger and better, only to get trolled by those who dont't partake in the rides or meets.

My nephew is 12. He has never ridden a motorcycle. I will get him a full suit, helmet, gloves. Now, he is safe to ride with, hahahaa...plain stupid. He will also be on a turbo charged, 200 shot of NOS, zx14.

I for one will go on most any ride if I can make the time, could be one other guy or could be a large ride. However, many people don't do large rides. It's a fact that they aren't as safe from crashes or police as smaller grouped rides are. Many of us don't enjoy just riding down a highway or cruising the strip.

Also, there are a ton of rides that go on, many are invites through PM/cell, they aren't posted publicly so as to not have random guys who they don't trust show up and ruin the day. Most everyone has their "core" group of friends here whom they are down to ride with.

I'd invite you to try one of the rides I lead out into the hill country, but I suspect you won't enjoy it much, and that's fine. Not every ride is for everyone. , TOE didn't even like it much.

MH has its downfalls for sure, but what you see has formed this way over the past 11 years because of many members experience with other riders and how things work better more times than not.

You see guys who are trolling, I see guys who ride almost every day (not me ), who used to ride with no gear (me ) , who have lost friends, who have crashed and lived to learn from it, who are trying to help in their own way.

Exactly my thoughts. Im not trolling at all, im just saying how I feel about what I expect in a ride leader. I woke up real early to make a ride on the opposite side of town and in my haste, i forgot to put my riding boots on. Im still getting shot to this day. Lol i dont look at it as experienced or not, I look at it irresponsible. Like I said, nothing against you...or TMAX the Crazy.

Look, I know the risks of riding with minimal gear, I get it...if I would have had a pair of "reg" jeans on and some boots, then all wouldve been good...

Thanks TMAX...you guys are awesome, laid back, and funny as , which is what I hope to meet and ride with within these forums. Toe, it's all good...still cant get over the fact that gear divides potential life friendships on here...it is 1 thing to comment about what peeps do, how they ride, what they wear, what they even ride on...if wearing the proper gear warrants someone to not ride with me as the leader, I dont want to be around them anyway, as they are probably not going to like my care free and spirited personally that allows peeps to be peeps...+100 TMAX and company...u guys know whats up...

When you go down, you'll understand my stance. Most that talk about gear have gone down and realize how important it is. That was my point with marquez. As much as he's been down in his career, you can bet your he'll be wearing gear. Its not if, its when. Ive been down twice, and i dont take many risks.

Do you honestly think he would show up on two wheels anywhere without gear? He has access to the best gear on the planet. Do you think he'd show up to your ride in shorts? Really?
