I Ride: 2008 zx10r and my wife
Im currently visiting texas where there is no helmet law and i see worse than this daily but i also havent seen them speeding or riding too stupid, not saying it doesn't happen but they probably ride more laid back and a bit more aware knowing there is nothing protecting them. But like koorbluh said who gives a shit, wear your gear and ride your ride and you SHOULD be.fine

This thread makes me laugh. All I can say is I know how to ride a motorcyle but everyone can always learn more about how to ride their bike. Even world reknown racers keep learning to go faster... As for gear to crash ratio, I would rather be able to get up off the ground, pick the bike up, and keep going instead of waiting for an emergency vehicle to save me.

However that is my opinion and I am entitled to it Just as you are yours.

But Spokane also has some of the worst drivers in the nation (top 10 worst cities to drive.)

On the track. Many of them have the reputation of driving like grannies on the streets.

Thank you
I have a 4 point and I will start the car but wont move till all belts are on and I will always wear my gear You people can say all you want about "notice and see your surroundings" but you cant see and know everything. It only takes one car or even another idiot on a bike to mess up the rest of your life

I Ride: a slow bike, slow
Crashed in full gear, hurt big toe, skinned up knee, skinned up part of my back.

Crashed in half gear, nothing.

Everyone knows it's a risk to ride, and riskier to ride with no gear. Everyone also has the right to judge. This topic is like racism, it'll never die.

I suppose that every time we go to a theater we should be wearing bullet proof vests? You never know, right?

QTFT!

This cannot be said enough, let people ride their ride the way they want. If you don't like riding without gear don't! But quit being so goddamned judgmental of anyone who is different.

I Ride: Everyday
Hot day my gear starts to come off. Would be down to Jeans, T-shirt and Helmet. Gloves and jacket would be stowed. Been riding 30 years been down twice once was a low speed lay down caused by a oncoming car passing another. The other one caused by sheer stupidity and lack of knowledge by a 20 year old version of me. Both times I was in Jeans, T-shirt and a helmet (full face). Both times I walked away with minor abbrasions. I do not push the speed envelope unless I am in gear. Otherwise I rdie at a pace that lets me react to the unexpected.

Here is my rule "I will ride my ride the same way I always have and will make it home the same way I always have. You can ride your ride your way and I also hope you make it home as you always have. I will not adjust the comfort level of my ride to accomodate the comfort level of yours." Again learned this at the age of 20 the hard way.

Been 26 years since I was on the ground hope to make it alot longer.

Pointing out squids is discrimination based on actions and gear alone

Oh and if you ever take a picture of me riding without gear please post it I do not have many of me on my bike. Would like to make a 8x10 glossy out of it
