Gear

A lot of people criticised me in here around september or october of last year for not wearing gear. Where the shit. I've got some good scars now thanks to 75 and if I would've had a jacket on at least I'd have practically nothing. This is basically for the people that think they are invincible and don't need gear because they won't crash. You might. It's worth it to have it on, it could at least keep you from going to the hospital for a week.

Good Call,

#1, how did the bike end up,

#2. What could have someone said to you to get you to wear gear?

The reason I say that, is I was the idiot that rode with out gear. I had gear on when I messed up, and no problems, but "Nothing ever happens to someone if they don't wear gear" mentality always prevales.


I know Lucky, I can't spell.

And it'sreally hard when you have been drinking homebrew! LOL

Sounds like a lot of us had to learn the hard way. I always wear my gear now....doesn't feel right to ride without it.
