So I go out and buy some sweet new gear; Alpinestars Jacket, pants, gloves, and a pair of SIDI Boots. I'm all proud of my new stuff. I get home and then I get it from the wife. I tell her that I'm just protecting myself better when I ride. Not gonna hear it. I guess I'm just looking for a support group for Motorcyclist who are in the doghouse. All I got right now is this site as it's raining and I don't want to ride in it. Come on give me some moral support.
