ST1300s seem especially prone to this.
The only K16 sightings I've made in the wild are a local guy on a white GT who wears a skullcap that couldn't possibly be DOT, and T shirts and shorts or jeans, and just yesterday a silver GTL in NH ridden by a geezer, without a helmet, in a tank top. I could see the white hair of his shoulders as he passed, without returning my wave.
What kind of fucker buys one of the worlds highest performance motorcycles then wears a tank top on it? A stupid fucker. Kids do it on gixxers, grandpas do it on big STs.
Wow ...never have observed a ST Rider like that. Just got back from a ST event in Norcal and all had the gear. Seems to me anyways. But regardless of the bike .... folks do dumb things anyways.
