feels great and until they invent a law to stop me i'll do as i please. i've crashed 8 times in total and mostly minor stuff minus a highside and a bad lowside. i've had road rash and cleaned it out myself and i'm half an inch shorter now. i do wear gear when i'm riding out in the boonies and giv'n her but around town sometimes you just gotta feel the wind and the sun and not sweat like a pig. so throw you're rehearsed lines back at me that have been embedded into you from the masses, preach to me to wear a full cow at all times but just think before you judge. i do know what road rash feels like and i do know what kind of excruciating pain can be forced upon me in the blink of an eye. motorcycling has many aspects but the longest living is the tradition of feeling free to go and do what you want how you want. just because you feel so scared that a truck will crush you in traffic doesn't mean i share the same fear. ride safe but more importantly ride your own ride. that is all.
