It's true.
Some of use spend every dime we have on an MC,
and don't have much for much else.

Keep rubbing it in, richy.

I'm thinking (well, HOPING) that this was a joke. If you buy a $15,000 motorcycle yet can not come up with 10% of that amount for proper riding gear you have a few prioritization issues.

I hate to say it, but there are a lot of people out there with "prioritization issues" Back when I sold bikes, people would come in to buy a bike, want to finance it with no down payment, and want the helmet thrown in for free because they didn't have a dime in their pocket. I'm not sure how they thought they could come up with $300 a month when they couldn't even swing a $89 helmet.

The more disturbing thing is that you, A) notice she's wearing clogs and B) know the brand of clog.
The Bundy is strong in this one.

Freaking idiots on here. The luggage is just fine. They cut weight by not wearing gear and proper helmets, and even shared headphones so that the rear suspension wasn't overloaded. :cool:
