Same guy. He stopped his life when his mom (riding pillion) was diagnosed with cancer. She made it a long while, but the cancer won. She is sporting a trademak smile and having a blast. I only wish I would have had the chance to meet her in person.

They are farther from going down than you may think. The loose nut is actually an exellent rider.

My 120 pound wife can pick one up. It is above the shoulders that counts. There are some that should try the muscle above tha jaws from time to time.

I'm sure, but it looks like he might pick a bike that won't wear down the hard bits on a daily drive.

As for the pants, who knows.
Jodhpurs, I'll assume. Most Moto Police in the US wear gear that is particularly suited to horseback riding. I understand they flex as they hit the ground, sparing themselves any injury.

Now, I command you to stop purposely being a moran.

Also, fetch us a sammich and pint of lager, noob.
I'll make it simple for you: I wear ALL THE GEAR ALL THE TIME, bud. Comprende?
Always have, always will. The fact that my comment went over your head does not make me a noob, and fetch yer own damn beer.

To save all of you the agony of watching another video...

In a nutshell: You only have one face, so protect it-- with sunscreen, and a bandana!

Yeah, much more effective against road rash than a chin bar and a face shield!

The taser is in the correct position for a weak hand draw which is strongly advocated locally where I am because it should reduce mistaken weapon use. The radio is in a position that he feels comfortable. He is not sitting in a patrol car all day with handcuffs and other crap pressing on his back, he's on a bike and nothing to cause back problems from equipment pressing into his back. Plus with the radio as far back as it is, the antenna isn't stuffed up his armpit messing up radio transmission. The shirt is just odd .
