omg. The Motorcyclist rag recently had an article about how all the modern motorcycle safety devices/gear lulled one into a false sense of immortality. Yeah maybe not immortality but since we have the gear on and thus are protected from injury, ahem, we take more risk. Taking risk is a personal decision. You sir made that decision public. Stop that. Wearing all the gear in most cases simple means more scissor time for the paramedics.
You only die once too. Kevlar and plastic won't keep one of those cars from flattening you if you mess up.
What a moronic statement and thing to do. You do only live once and you're supposed to make it last as long as possible... and all the gear in the world won't help you when you get ran over by a car. Also; as much as seeing this stuff actually infuriates me cagers hate it even more and next time you may get one that hits you or stops short on purpose.
From our friends at Lawyers.com:In some areas it still considered reckless driving EVEN on private property???? That's messed up.
