    It's indestructable biker season again!

    Yay! :-(

    Sorry pet hate of mine ... people riding bikes wearing a T-Shirt, no gloves and light trousers or shorts :-(

    Or are the local bikers made of stuff tougher than kevlar ?

    Ha !
    Too right. I've been noticing more and more on the road too. This weekend I was riding about with the wife on board and she was pointing them out to me on the motorway.
    RT1150 rider in slacks and tennis shoes, Harley pilot in a leather waist coat and a T-shirt, just all sorts of stupid motorvating about the streets of Dorkland.

    Head to toe leather and Kevlar, I am starting to feel over dressed!

    Just in time for the middle of the road, mirrorless, me, me, me drivers too.
    I've already seen some mind boggling examples of "holiday driving" up here.

    Be afraid, very afraid. Open your eyes & put your gear on.

    As long as the law only requires a helmet, people are free to choose. I don't like it that way since I pay a shiteload of ACC levies but at the moment, that's the way it is

    Don't ignore summer biker sexism either. I am amazed at the riders one sees out with BFF, or prospective BFF, on the back wearing street clothes (including shoes and a fashion leather jacket) and a helmet that doesn't fit properly.

    Sexually transmitted diseases are one thing, sexually affected carnage is something else entirely. Ladies, if his cock's that small that he's prepared to put you at risk for a root, look elsewhere. Seriously.

    One can only hope that the lack of protective gear makes them try really really hard not to fall off.

    I did the SICKEST fuckin wheelie down the motorway yesterday. Only put it down because I was getting cold. Standing up doing a wheelie, the fairing doesn't keep the wind of my bare arms.

    Do they put fairings on GN125s?

    Suzuki don't, but that's only because they're not cool enough!

    Actually if you crash and strip all the skin off your arms, when they do the skin graft from your arse you'll gain an excellent layer of scar tissue. That, combined with the nerve damage, means you'll never feel the cold on your arms again! A win situation!

    I wrap my wife up in her XXXS helmet, massively bulky sport touring jacket with more padding than a sumo suit, kevlar 'skid pants' and thick leather boots. She moans and caterwauls about being seen in public like that every single time we go out.
    I think you'll find that for many women, looking good is more important than staying alive.

    Just tell her you find her looking like the Michelin Man is sexier than her looking like an extra from Resident Evil
