Default Zebra stripes and lions

Discordant shapes also help confuse WW2 submarines when they would try to target you for a torpedo attack

Default Hmmmm....

That would mean that you were also responsible for:



So butch, so rugged, so...so ohmygod he's just soooo hunky!



I am not sharing a room with you on any more shootouts.

Icon already swiped your "Iron Fist" idea and made it in the form of their TiMax glove, only theirs is a Titanium Fist.

Well, that rain on Monday was pretty harsh. Even my new-ish Roadcrafter leaked like a screen door after riding 35 miles in that gullywasher.

Default Re: Design Anyone?

sarnali,



I wish this were true, about the visual recognition, but I fear it is not and similar to the "loud pipes saves lives" theme--both rarely do. I am seeing a new danger these days and that is the young female driver (stereotype, stereotype, stereotype) that looks to have her first car, which is a manual transmission. She starts with her cellphone in her right hand--what the hell am I saying, "starts", hell she never stops--and then finds the need to shift gears and that's when the danger exponentially shoots off the mathematical charts for those anywhere in the immediate vicinity of her as she either tries to shift with her right hand and cellphone together or does the right to left-hand switch whereupon she creeps, but most of the time swerves into the left lane next to her. Pure unmediated hell and does she give a damn? Absolutely not as she's to busy wanking herself on her bloody cellphone. Flipin' wankette... multitasking my arse!

Does it mash yer goolies? I've gotta find something to replace my tight-in-the-crotch Triumph overpants. Any suggestions? Jockey shorts instead of boxers? Give up riding my sport bike? I'm serious. I have to go back to the Uuologist next week and have another ultrasound. Apparently, this is a common problem for bicycle riders.

Yes, BMw's stuff isn't bad as far as looking normal goes, but the best is Dainese. Not the race-rep suits, but the scooter and cruiser gear, which is so anonymous you'd never know it was ever intended for bike use at all.

Man, those color combos would stun the entire Polish ISDT team. (oops, I meant ISDE).



How abou a fushia/vermillion combo fanny pack-neck scarf? Red/white polka-dot riding jodpurs with knee-high silver Doc Martins?

(al la Billy Pilgrim)



For me, it's an old ratty flight deck jacket, Big 5 boots and a very loud voice (horn doesn't work). Of course, kicking big dents in the cages is an option too.

Default Re: Acerbis Matrix Riding Suit - Under Armour

If you're considering the Under Armour stuff, check out Zyflex (http://www.zyflex.com). All the same stuff at a fraction of the cost. For example, an Under Armour cold compression shirt, $45 - $49 at a large sporting goods store. The Zyflex version goes for $29. No, other than being a customer, I have no association with Zyflex. Just trying to pass on a good tip to fellow MoFo's.
