The video lied, possibly to get around some posting rules. Paramedicas don't leave live people hanging by their head while they take pictures. His name was Brandon Lee White from Broken Arrow, OK. He's definitely dead.

His family hopes his death will put greater emphasis on helmet laws...??? Maybe they think wearing 2 helmets would have helped him.

I just want some black shorty levers and a black double bubble windscreen, then it will be complete.

I know I'm not all the way yet, but progress is being made. What kind of pants do you recommend?
How long have you been out of the Marines? I don't ride a bike, but from my time on AD, even I know exactly what gear the Army expects you to wear (for safety) when riding because of all the posters and crap plastered all over the place. Maybe the Marines just aren't as anal about that stuff?

Congratulations on your motorcycle. The next piece of gear you need is specialized riding pants. A pair of Sliders will save your bacon in a crash. I wear Sliders cargo pants. They have Kevlar for protection from the hips to below the knees. Do you wear gloves? Gloves are another important piece of equipment.

No, they definitely are. That's why I never had a bike while I was in. How can you drive your bike to batallion PT if you need to show up like you're dressed for war?

Ironically I started off wearing no gear. Just a shirt and flip flops. Now I don't leave home without gloves boots a helmet a jacket with armor etc.

But I'm still lacking pants. Most pants I've seen look STUPID. Sliders you say? I'll look into them

Look at Cortech riding jeans or cargo pants too. AlpineStar also has riding pants. However, these are no more than slightly heavier pants than typical dress pants with some reinforced leather/kevlar pannels.

Draggin Jeans are the best and most expensive (most uncomfortable too because of all the kevlar panels sewn into them). There's a French outfit that also makes some seriously mean riding jeans that are leather-like in crash resistance but not cheap at about $500 a pop.

Most guys would wear their full PT gear w/boots, then strip down depending on the weather and put their sneakers on. Usually wore a small backpack to store the extra clothes. I agree, it always (and still does) seem like a huge pain in the arse. I still work on a military post, and a lot of the people I work with refuse to ride to work because the restrictions are the same for all.
