    Why anyone wears shorts and tshirts and tennis shoes on a bike is beyond me. I guess that they (a) don't fear laying a bike down (b) haven't seen road rash (c) are generally stupid, or all of the above.

    I don't think a Thai girl took that pic. Euro was out driving with his neighbor.

    I tried to ride a Vrod while in shorts and boat shoes once

    The smell of burning flesh - my ankles - put an abrupt stop to that

    In all seriousness, get some gear. It'll be the difference between having a few bruises and not having any skin left when you crash. And you will, everyone does.

    Agreed. Boots so your shoes don't fly off, Levi's at a minimum, gloves and some sort of protective jacket. I know, sucks in the summer.

    I took a 20mph spill once and got a rash from the jacket. I'd hate to know what real road rash is like. I was very thankfull for the gloves.

    When Jesus wants me, He'll take me.

    Hell, I'm surprised I had a helmet on but I was glad I did. I always wear a helmet and close-toed shoes when I'm on the interstate. I got hit with some pebbles on my barefeet at 90 MPH once and...well never again.

    I bought a motorcycle to suit me. I generally wear shorts, flip flops, and a t-shirt. I would prefer not to change the way I dress just to commute cheaply to school.

    May be a glorified moped, but when its time to go to the gas pump, it rocks. And may I add fun to ride.....

    But on a bike, at least wear some jeans, brother.:whistling:

    I'm being serious, don't think I'm being difficult.

    I understand basketball shorts and flip flops and a t-shirt will get you in alot more trouble than virtually anything else you could wear.

    But do jeans/over the ankle boots really make much more of a difference than shorts and tennis shoes?

    (I completely see how a riding jacket, gloves, and a helmet will help)

    Yes pants dont hold up well to pavement but holds up better than flesh does.

    Really with the breathable protection available to day there is no reason to ride without. Road rash sucks and mine is still sensitive 6 years later.

    Good God man, doesn't rocks annoying you feet tell you something?

    More than likely Jesus won't take you, hopfully you will only just be in a lot of pain.

    Anything you can add to your current attire would help. Gloves are easy and cool looking. Lace up hiking boots aren't much harder to wear than shoes.

    Please tell me you will think about it. Typing this on a tablet was torture :supergrin:
