Most dont even think about gear before they buy a Bike. Then its all up to there peers. Depending on what groups they decide to congragate with pretty much decides where they put there $$$.

I am slowly trying to educate my bosses to wear some type of gear. I have given them both Full face helmets to wear instead of those little Beannies. They see pics of me wearing full race gear even in the summer. Part of it is looking to fit in as they both ride cruisers. I havve slowly been working on there wives to help me in the battle :D

Yeah its hard to convince the cruiser group how important it is to wear a full face helmet. At the very least a DOT/SNELL approved helmet. I see a lot of the touring bike group wearing gear but they tend to take long road tips and know how important it is to wear good gear at highway speeds.

She lives in KY now, not sure where she is from. Just got married last year I think.  Same female everyone hears tells about from yrs ago..

Damn I cant remember her name and the website is loading too slow.  Used to have her on my FB friends list, not sure if she is still on it.

Edit.. I remember her name now...

Brittany Morrow IIRC.

most people would rather spend their money on parts for the bike instead of gear  :27 they will learn someday.

Better to spend the  $$$ and have the gear and a bike that doesn't look crazy with all the accessories.......... than dead or seriously injured


Ride safe and smart all the time, not just on the long hauls.
