Jay

tell your bike i didn't mean it :( , she's not crappy , but you still look like Mr. Kool-aid-squid to me :D

seriously though , get a red cbr250r , take off the sides and she'l look just like you SV , except smaller (and cooler).

btw- unlike you , i got a life , can't be on the internet all day telling every one how cool you think you are ;)

btw#2-i live in south florida , we don't need the internet to "go blind" , got the real thing laying on my bed ;);)

btw#3-nice lawn care in your hood , florida lawn care specialist would be proud to cut that grass :D:D

btw#4-saw this old video and thought about your bike , how about YOU put a video showing us squiddies how you are supposed to ride.

Better idea: sell your computer and buy some gear...at least a pair of closed-toed. You'll be safer and there might be some benefits for the rest of us, too. ;)
For a squid with the handle Empty Sea, you are full of bright ideas.

I really do appreciate your concern for my safety, but pray do inform me, how would me wearing Hush Puppies and long pants bring benefit to ya'll?

Nice one Aufit.

He's cutely attired for a day at the beach, and surely won't be punting the bike along too hard on the way. A man clad in a mankini cannot afford to take risks.

Personally I prefer a throw on a shirt and shorts for a bit of sun protection. A shortie helmet with a peak protects the nose a bit better too, and lets me sniff the sea air, the grilling chicken, and the odd garbage truck along the way.

He doesn't have much gear. I reckon on a flutter board, a bucket and spade, a rubber ducky and a few beers when I toddle off to play at the seaside.

Of course, a track day, or going hard on the road for an afternoon, might involve taking a few more risks so full leathers, and full face could be the order of the day.

But being just a geezer who has used motorcycles to get around for a few decades, not a real motorcyclist, I don't know Jack about how to dress appropriately, being safe, and such stuff.

However I do reckon I am right in saying that you shouldn't think of fancy togs and technology as a guardian angel.

and for some reports on what can happen when good rides go bad...

read the story about Brittany Morrow aka The Road Rash Queen

Rock The Gear

then go over to Adventure rider and read the Face plant forum.

wear what you want. just be aware of the consequences. Many of you know and
accept the risk. After all, just riding a motorcycle is risky. Many new riders do not realize what can happen, the road rash queen story is an eye opener.

Full Spidi racing leathers, leather gloves, Alpinestar Stella boots, M2R full face.

And yes I wear this on the streets as well as the track ;) If its really really hot (+30C) I change out leathers for my fieldsheer jacket and some thick jeans but still wear everything else

Lovin the Joe Rocket as one of my favs. They actually make jackets that fit a smaller woman. Jacket fits awesome with sleeves that are long enough. Pants leave much to be desired though. This years riding season goal is to find leather pants to fit well, bendy, and comfortable while providing the desired protection:D In the meantime the textile, kevlar pants will have to do

not sure if this is true... but i had heard somewhere that kevlar lined jeans are better for slides and textile are better for impact (since they typically have armor in them). i would imagine regular leathers (chaps and pants) are only good for slides since they offer no impact protection. leather track pants (typically with knee pucks) do have armor but are prob very hot in the summer.... and who wants to spend $500 on pants you only wear when it less than 70 deg out. each seems to have a trade off. more protection = discomfort/higher price.
