I have the most respect for people that get back on the saddle after something like that. ATGATT.

I've been griefed by a couple of guys for wearing full leather gear every time I ride (and I do mean always). Lucky for me I don't care what idiots think.

Just tell them to run as fast as they can and then jump. Tell them to land on there knees and hands. Then when they refuse tell them thats 1/10 of what falling off at 30 feels like.

Its easier to replace leather than skin.

I don't care what anyone wears, and expect the same in return.

I just got back from hard night ride on the XX.

In the 90's, temp and humidity.

Ideal tee shirt weather, even skipped the gloves.
