Really? Using a dead guy as the butt of a joke ? Classy.

It never fails to amaze me how many rugged individualists cannot let other people ride their own ride without questioning why every rider doesn't conform to their own personal standard. Sometimes I ride in a tee shirt, jeans and sneakers. Sometimes I ride in street gear. Sometimes I ride in dirt gear. But usually I ride in some weird combination of the two or even just my walking around clothes and a helmet. Snap a picture off me and God only knows what you will see in terms of ATGATT. What you will always see, despite attire that conforms to no known standard, is me smiling because I am riding. Besides I am too old and been doing this too long to give a damn what anybody else thinks about riding gear or lack thereof.

The short version is STFU about ATGATT and get back to posting pictures.

The chick is out riding, skills aside, on a road that some in this thread claim they won't ride because it's "too dangerous". I give her props for riding her ride, I give all chicks who ride props.

ATGATT is overrated.... it's for guys who are either too afraid of a boo-boo or those who feel like thay have to put on an amour suit to prove how manly they are to participate in such a dangerous activity.
Perhaps when you look in the mirror you think a bit of road rash would be an improvement or some scars will make you more manly.

Do you think that a motorcycle is a good place to show of the goods? Personally while I find the look of ms grinding floorboards appealing I'm more turned on by the same women in leather. I'd be even more turned on if it was apparent she knew how to handle the big hog she's trying to ride.

As I never know when I'll be faced with a hot chick over her head on a huge piece of iron coming the other way I prefer to dress appropriately. Of course YMMV.

Funny thing about that Hayden picture is I think he was actually happy having won the Laguna Seca race and the GP Championship after his team mate Pedrossa had taken him out late in the previous race.

Pretty sure that's where that picture came from with the flag right there.

Huh. And here I never knew I was such a p*ssy for choosing to avoid unnecessary pain and injury. Knowing is half the battle!

But, let's be honest, I wear gear for one simple reason: I ain't ugly like you dogs, I plan on keeping it that way.

Do you see a car tire on the back of his Goldwing in any of his pictures?

I know he mentioned some where on this thread what kind of tire he runs, but I couldn't find it
