I have to admit, however, to being predjudiced against those who don't at least wear helmet, boots and gloves.
I figure they are just kind of stupid as these are the most likey and vulnerable appendages to be injured badly even in a low speed crash.
which is all too likely to happen at some point considering even the everyday obstacles that we confront.
But, like I say, everyone is perfectly entitled to make their own choices that suit them at the time. I choose to ride mostly ATGATT, usually this is in my 2 piece 'stich with FF, gauntlets and touring boots. Occasionally, when it is hot, I will wear shorty gloves, open as many zippers as possible and even skip the pants. If I lived down south again I would probably modify this with some sort of mesh suit.
Over all? Big Deal, Who Cares, I certainly don't care what I look like to the average Joe Fabeetz riding his Hardley or clone, wearing T-shirt, shorts and sandals.
HE looks ridiculous!
P.S. What's with all thehiking boots
