Come on, admit it: You’ve noticed your reflection in the plate glass of a storefront and paused for a moment to contemplate how cool you look on a bike. We all have. Part of the attraction of riding a motorcycle is to set yourself apart from the crowd of box-jockeys. Wearing motorcycle gear places you as a member of our tribe even when you aren’t straddling your bike. Other motorcyclists know what to look for: bug impacts on leather, the well-worn shifter patch on the left boot, armor hidden in your jean’s knees, etc. Wear your gear proudly.
