Mostly a fail for the lack of cruiserface. Aesthetically, a win.

not covering the levers, looks like she's leaning away from the turn, and if she goes down...well that pretty skin is coming off...her own skin...from her own body...from her own accident...while riding her own ride...

I'm always happy to see other women out there enjoying their ride.
She looks really happy to be out there and I pray she always has good fortune.

In the safety classes, they teach that you should NOT cover the brake. That may be where she picked that habit up.

The only time I haven't covered the brake with 1 or 2 fingers is when I've taken a safety course.

Personally, I wouldn't choose the gear she is wearing. I'm a clutz and would soon find myself chin-surfing down the road.

Pot - kettle.

For the record, both of them are Morans.

Well it is her skin, and her decision to make; not ours...

Probably more likely than you using caps or spell checking your post!

I hear ya, but it pains me when I see all that bare skin. The road is a harsh surface. She looks great though. Very relaxed, grinning, looks like she's having a ball. I wish her well, a safe and happy ride, and hope she's wearing sunscreen.

Baz Luhrmann, everyone!

I'm just going to throw this out there; as far as the ATTGATT argument goes, I'm all about making a decision based on your comparison of benefit vs. consequence. We're all big people here. We all know what could happen if we hit the pavement at speed. If you want to wear the minimum required by law, hey, your choice, your ride. So long as you're not affecting my ride on the road (crossing the double yellow, etc.), then by all means, knock yourself out.

/opinionated rant

I need to refill my glass.
