Man.. what is up with the gear Nazis? Seems like any time there is a picture posted, on any of the forums I read/post, of someone and they aren't wearing the party approved gear while riding, someone always has to make a comment about the lack of gear. WTF is that all about? Like this douche nozzle here in Post # 12
Well, some people like to look pretty when they ride.
My daughter is in High School, she is the same way, not as bad as some of her friends though.
Someone once said "There is a reason gear and queer rythme" but I'm not sure I'd go that far.
There is one guy I know in St. Louis who is so into his gear, I sometimes wonder if he is a closet - uh, never mind.
Whatever, you know, I wear a jacket every once and a while, but generally, I am not into the safety gear that much.
Some people really need it, seriously, I've seen how a lot of people ride, they need it - and more.
Now, they hard core Harley lifestylers and all their leather gear, well, most of that is so lame I do not even know where to start - but then again, most of them are such pathetic riders, they need it the most.
And that leather, all that safety gear, probably goes a long way to protecting those with really thin skin
Now, I'll probably wear my bug encrusted Joe Rocker jacket this weekend, I am going several hundred miles.
And I'll be wearing my hundred year old Shoei that has been dropped more times than I can remember, and who's shield is almost impossible to see though - I could use a new helmet, I guess.
And if I had a nice pair of Kelvar jeans, I'd probably wear them.
I'm rambling, wear whatever you want, ride whatever you want, just do not try and tell me what to do, OK?
