That was great steak, DQ! One of the better ones I've had there!

I always try to help out a fellow motorcyclists when they request help... just didn't know it would come from the Ex-Wife!

I'm guessing you invited her to the rally.

She was in a parking lot trying to learn how to ride... I think the MSF class owes her a refund!

Let me preface this photo by saying, I am a proponent of ATGATT. However, on occasion, I do not adhere to it. On some rides around town or when I just don't feel like gearing up, you may see me wearing shorts, tennis shoes, t-shirt, and no gloves. I believe that every person should have the right to choose their riding attire, as long as I am not expected to take care of them if something should happen.

I say all this because I saw a different take on safety gear this morning. My first thought was, "wow, this guy's an idiot". After I thought about it for a minute I thought, "who am I do judge? He is probably more protected than I am at times". My next thought was, "Even if I don't judge him, I still have to get a photo".

If you know him, please don't take offense. He was a very nice guy but I found his choice of "gear" interesting.





Yes, that is neoprene elbow pads, single strap knee pads, and crocks. He looked like he was having a hell of good time.

at the above post.

I just got in from a rainy ride. After nearly dumping it for the third time, ironically enough on "Reform Dump Road," I said uncle and headed home. 600 lb bikes on street tires and solo mud riding is not much fun...

This beer is tasty though

I passed a guy on Lake Harbor a few months back that had knee pads and such like the guy in your pic DQ. Looked like a kids skateboard gear on a biker... Wonder if it was the same guy.

Jackson MS riders?

I don't have much going on Wednesday and I'm thinking about going somewhere for lunch. I'm thinking maybe Vines in Centreville, Dreamland in Tuscaloosa, Shaggys on the coast, or ???? Anyone have any other ideas? Maybe some out of the way cool spot? Anyone want to go with me?

I'm assuming you've already left, but, if not I'm up for anywhere within 100 miles.

Unfortunately it's not mine (yet). I'm doing some work on it and trying to talk him into selling it.
