Re: I bet this guy wishes he had leathers on ....

America has a ridiculous culture of "If I'm not legally required to, I won't" when it comes to motorcycles and cars. I mean, the bloke in the article appears to be wearing a skid lid. So he's got some sense. But it's a skid lid which is good for [-Censored-] all. I know California is hot, but I'd rather have a hot head in a full face helmet, than take the skin off my face and grind my nose to a stump when sliding down the road. Same for a leather jacket. Your skin is the largest organ on the body. Not leaving most of it a couple hundred feet along the highway is probably a good idea. Hell, they make breathables now from all sorts of fancy materials.

There really is no excuse other than plain idiocy and a desire to look like a badass.

Don't think they'll be riding for a long time, assuming they have a backside left to ride on... Shocked

Barry Sheen used to say something along the lines of broken bones no problem they mend but when you leave half your (behind) on the tarmac (like he did) it doesn't grow back.
