    How does she avoid the dreaded diaper-butt? I look like I'm carrying a full load when I stand up in my leathers. :deal

    It says that the bike is a dead stock 80's Honda cruiser, actually.

    But being as old as you are, I'm sure you knew that.

    Or maybe you're just a fuckin' n00b. :dunno

    Haha I love that sticker. And it looks like you found it the same place I have. On a fly zapper tennis racket from harbor freight.

    Modern leathers have these sort of elastic panels that keeps everything fitting just so. The panels are not in abrasion areas of the suit. Several comely women wear them at a track that I use. Gawd. I forget how to ride, speak, stand up, and all manner of stuff when they walk by. So help me, I will bet that there will be a leather fetish group based on nothing more than racing leathers. If Mrs.Peel (Diana Rigg) had these leathers back in the day when she got out of the corvette, I would have been one of those guys writing her letters. The leathers cut for guys give a sort of power ranger look if you can stand that.

    A cuppla times, I was following one of these honeys on the track; missed all my turn-in points, most of my brake markers, apexes went unnoticed, and have no idea what line I might have been riding. It took me a while to get acclimated to the scenery and get my focus back. Didn't even bother to save my distracted lap times. Although I remember laughing when I read them. It is now possible to have pulcritude on the racing surface. Female callipygian riders in well fitting race leathers are worth the slower lap times.

    Not the Dragon, possibly 205, but just a fine place to share:

    WTF was that, some kind of weird target fixation or was the rider just drunk?

    Is it just me or does that last picture look like a couple of midgets on minibikes?

    That is a sad & sobering set of images. i'm not a fan of bent metal & broken people.

    The guy falling alongside & behind the second bike is very lucky it wasn't a boxer twin...
