    No way! It was an incomplete list.

    I like you better than:
    - wet socks
    - gloves with holes
    - air filters caked with dust
    - water in fuel

    I mean...... I could go on but I don't want you to get a big head or anything.

    Hey Cuttle great thread! I just got myself a WR450 and I want to experience the kinds of locales you've been photographing. I have to get it plated first, but in the meantime I was wondering what kind of riding gear you would recommend. I've got street gear, but I don't think my SIDI racing boots will hold up to water crossings! Are waterproof boots necessary to explore the dirty nether regions of WNC? And do you suggest armor under a jersey or a mesh jacket with protection?

    that day I would have preferred to be topless :lol3 - way to hot for the slow speeds I am riding on the single track.

    I ride with the mesh armor because I crash (and apparently I bounce). So for me it's armor and vented pants. Armor under a jersey is a good option too. Don't ride with street boots - they are too slick, especially if you are vertically challenged like me. Waterproof is fine (especially in the winter) but if the water crossings are deep, you end up standing in a pool.
