Re: EU Laws to Put Brake on Bikers.
 
I wear all the crap because I ride around Seattle drivers. Actually that stretch of i5 is often pretty good. Evenings it's almost always fine, as it is mid-day or weekends. I only open it up if there are no cars in the lane next to me at all, and only in the left lane. It's also a no cop area; they wait in north and south seattle for speeders.



I stick to sane speeds on surface streets.



I put on the gear every time I ride, unless I just feel like a jackass, which happens sometimes. I ride around Seattle drivers, so I pretty much have to. It doesn't take long.

"however on the plus side you get to ride around some pretty varied scenery and roads"



And in the US there aren’t roads with varied scenery? You're kidding me right?



"get to all of the good rounds of moto gp and world sbk if thats your thing"



Sure, that a plus for Europe. No argument there.



"get all the bikes considered too eccentric for the US like sub 1000cc standards and trailies"



Mmm … your ride a bike smaller than 1000cc? Shame …



"europe is full of lovely europeans"



We get to see Canadians. They’re basically the same but smell better.



"what more could you ask for ? gun laws?"



You tell me. We do not have much by the way of gun laws over here.

Interesting, Gabe thinks I'm far right, and you think I'm a lefty. I must be doing something right. Excuse me, I mean OK.

Better safe than sorry. I always wear my full face shoei, either leather or textile riding jacket and boots and gloves. If it's cold or wet I wear my JR ballistic overpants, the rest of the time I wear jeans.



Already starting to see guys in shirtsleeves and beanie helmets since it warmed up a little.... Not too bright.

well i wasnt trying to start a competition or anything of course america is varied i mean you sell spicy chicken burgers in the macdonalds in the south and regular chicken burgers in the north...i do ride a bike below 1000cc in fact the largest capacity bike i own is 750cc..i have a couple of smaller displacement bikes also 250cc and 125cc..i have also owned 1300 cc bikes ..but the displacement really means nothing to me one way or the other its the fun i have riding them..each has its own niche....anyhow why dont you tour europe and find this stuff out for yourself ...i worked in the US for a while and enjoyed biking around and the new experiences ..i am sure most of you guys would really enjoy all europe has to offer from a biking perspective
