Cooler? Oh, dude, you must not have seen my chaps, fingerless gloves, the bitchen leather tassles I have comin' off the grips, and my 1/4 helmet with the Kaiser spike on the top. You don't know me! You don't know my crew! Sorry, I get carried away when in "harley guy" mode.
Ya, I commute on my bikes. I have a facebook page called Motorcycle Commuter. Started it because the webforums usually didn't talk about commuting issues.
