Isn't NGAOTT (No gear any of the time) a religiously held mantra as well..
lmfao, sure sounds like it to me
Oh I see, you want a response.
Having ranted on about me being a loony lefty (therefore presumably unworthy of an opinion or voice) I would have thought you would have taken RVOKINO's advice and put me on your ignore list.
Having been raised a hill country farm hick, and spent over 25 years of my working life as a farm labourer, my neck is redder than many. A career change a dozen years ago is the result of being aware and adapting to circumstances, rather than being a bland reactionary numbskull.
At no stage have I advocated No Gear Any Of The Time
, though a butt naked blast along some beach might be a fun thing to do.
Wearing kevlar gear and riding with a bulletproof attitude is a recipe for disaster.
when that dogs jumps out from behind a bush from 5 feet away or or there is 3 cubic yards of gravel from someones driveway in your lane in a sharp corner and theres oncoming traffic...getting the picture?...
Yup, I get the picture. All that and more around these parts, and other parts I have lived. Nothing is unexpected.
Expect nothing and you will not be surprised..... There's a nice mantra for ya'll.
