Probably posted too many times, took himself literally.
Hell, i was running boots and filed jackets til 2006
That was my ATGATT too. The Bell Star 90 had about as much room to look out as a medieval knight's helmet and probably weighed as much too. My Honda 500-4 had six-over forks and 'hangers and open pipes with Snuff-r-nots that you could close in the presence of LE activities. Back then the dream was to one day have a Superglide.
And don't forget the sissy bar that was a good functional luggage rack.
come to south Florida where the closest thing to a curve is when you get on and off Florida's Turnpike!!!
I went back to 5/14 and didn't see this posted -- great pic!
In the mid '70's, my uniform of choice was Cav boots, tanker's jacket, and a Bell Star.
Non-reg, but our unit allowed a bit of flexibility...
Back in the late 70's a friend of mine used to ride in retired fire department turnout gear with the heavy insulating liners removed. It was an interesting look and definitely high viz since we had yellow gear. I don't know how well Nomex holds up to road rash but he was ready in case the gas tank blew up.
Late 60's. When I used to ride the 150 miles home from college in the winter, my riding gear was EVERY BIT OF CLOTHING I OWNED !!!!
Dig the matching peace sign helmets!
Oh wow. A Lambretta (??) with 'Roo Bars and an aftermarket horn...
Actual touring trunk on a KLR?!?!? I hear you can get arrested is some states for that.
Those crash bars came in handy as I dropped it twice. The 2nd time it wouldn't start afterwards, I walked around it puzzlin', then noticed that the megaphone tail pipe was stuffed full of grass/mud (it had slid backwards into a grassy bank). Dug it out and off I went !! *grins*
No worries...they picked it up at the Tree of Shame.
"on the road" isn't that hard of a concept to grasp.
The "road" where one would ride a street bike primarily.
Not "US 129" which is a road.
It was on my last bike. My wife asked me what the meaning of FYYFF was . I told her it was have a nice day in the ADV community.
My chain looks a little tight.
Yup, Tennessee, it's definitely the bikes that are the problem.
Yep, can't wait to see them in the next series of pics ... at least they have gear.
