    BUT it is no substitute for race leathers. Nobody approves Aerostitch for racing, just for track days and that depends on the local organizations too.

    Obviously you're OK, otherwise you wouldn't be posting.:supergrin:

    Reminds me of a conversation I had with one of the ex-chicks:

    "Hey, I got into a car accident yesterday!!!"

    "How's the car?"

    "F THE CAR!!! How the hell am I?"

    "Obviously you're OK, otherwise we wouldn't be talking."

    "YOU INSENSITIVE &*&^%%&!!!"

    "Hey, it's a nice 944 Turbo!"

    CLICK!!!

    Similarly'da aircraft, any "landin" tha'cha can walk away from is a good one.

    And as an addition to the "advice" column for the new rider, something that a many-years-of-experience departing motorcycle magazine editor once left in his parting remarks: "Beware the Volvo . . even if it's parked."

    I mostly ride with a Kevlar jacket. Yes. I am not confused. It is a complete kevlar shell. I feel no less safe in that than in leather. If you look a long time ago racing gloves went away from studded palms to kevlar re-inforced palms. Why? abrasion resistance. Try to to abrade kevlar (or cut it) and come back with a report how well that worked.

    Kevlar is a PITA to cut and very abrasion resistant.

    A 650 Savage would be a pretty good choice. Most inexperienced riders get into trouble around curves, they try to brake at curves rather than lean the bike. Watch your wife on curves and be sure she can sit on the bike SHE chooses flat footed!

    Hence the MSF Basic Rider Course.

    It may not turn you into a road racer, but it sure helps you go around the corner with alacrity.

    Did you read the whole thread? There were videos posted of girls doing just that.

    Don't hate because skinny chicks can lift a Harley better than the fatass that usually rides on it.

    I'm going all out by saying,if this doesn't motivate alot more people to driving motorcycles/scooter/mopeds i don't know what will.

    http://news.yahoo.com/calif-gasoline-prices-hit-time-high-twice-110620716--finance.html


    I'm going to do everything in my power to be as good a motorcyclist as i can so when spring,summer,fall prices hit,i won't go into cardiac arrest.

    I drive 12 miles one way,no biggy until i fill up the dually at 168.00 a tank which lasts 4 to 5 days day depending on how much i drive.

    Now if i get a 500-650 i'll be treading on 50 mpg or better which will save me about 550.00 a month in gas and be a whole lot more fun.

    And don't think that because some chihuahua-syndromed babe can put'a hog back on it's feet that that's gonna make bikin' appeal to the more run'a the mill ladies.

    If they're nervous about musclin'a bike around, the bike you got'em's gonna gather dust.
    They've godda gedda familiarity and some experience under their belt with a smaller, less threatening hunk'a metal.
    After they get that familiarity and experience, a bigger bike may be in the cards, but, realistically, a mid-sized bike would probably suit most of them better.
