At least he had his gear on

You know, for all the rear tires I've gone through, I've never done a burnout.

Like I said, I've only had a bike for a couple weeks... but it's INCREDIBLE how "oh, you have a bike" is ALWAYS followed by "do a wheelie". Why don't I just ghost ride it down the road for you and we can laugh as I suddenly have a loan for something that doesn't exist anymore... Yeah, they don't say much after that

It amazes me how many people think that's an acceptable thing to do on a public road in traffic, and that I bought my bike for their entertainment.

Apparently a back protector is all you need these days

And gloves. The gloves help your "Cool" factor, as well. They only work correctly if you are wearing a T-shirt and shorts, though. Flipflops help, as well. They make shifting and braking much faster.

Speaking of all that, am I the only one who almost feels sick when pulling up next to a bike at a traffic light or whatever and he is not wearing any gear whatsoever, and his better half is riding with him (maybe wearing a helmet). They always look over and give a nod almost like they're superior because they have a chick on the back. Shit, I could easily get my girl to dress down a little and jump on the bike, but I don't really feel like putting her life at risk for the sake of "looking cool."

On the bright side, since I've gotten the Duc those looks of superiority have turned to jealousy. I feel better now.
