i don't mind wearing my big, dorky hi-viz Darien. i don't mind the Alpinestar boots, gloves or wearing a helmet. but i have in the past pulled on my jeans in place of the Darien. i'll be stopping that behaviour now. i have also toyed with the idea of getting a half or 3/4 helmet for running errands (bank, down the shops, post office, you know) instead of the Nolan modular. thanks to Face Plant, that idea has been shit-canned. i have decided that instead of wearing a half helmet, i'll just put on the dirt helmet instead with a pair of safety glasses. not nearly as big and closed up as the Nolan. anyway, thanks for contributing and know that your posts made a difference.
