    I respectfully disagree with No. 8 and yes, I’ve had several cases of serious road rash. Don’t tell me how to ride my motorcycle and I won’t tell you how to ride yours. If safety is your primary concern then get a Volvo. I prefer to find a happy medium. Thanks.

    I made a “T” shirt with “If you don’t ride a motorcycle, you wouldn’t understand ” on the back, so my wife would be reminded every time I took the bike for a ride.

    ATGATT. People always ask me if my Roadcrafter suit is hot, to which I reply, “I’d rather sweat than bleed.”
