Yeah, I agree. I didn't mean to sound like a zealot. I am not always ATGATT even though I am well aware of the consequences of not being so. I am sure that dude was enjoying himself and that is, after all, what it is all about, no?

Enjoyment come to those not sliding across the pavement with no gear on. This from a guy who rides most everywhere with just a vest on.

Exactly what my '96 KX250 looked like




this is what my '97 looks like. Toned down the purple on the tank shrouds. By '98 the seats were green/black and the purple mess was history. YAY!




And these machines are for the BAD BOY in all of us!!!!
Can happily say I've had good rides on both examples, full gear of course!!

I ride MOTGMOTT but occasionally I'll run to the store in just a helmet, shorts, t-shirt, and flip-flops. I don't own crocs.

Yeah, I figured you were. I didn't mean to sound defensive; I just like to argue for the sake of arguing. I thought you knew me.
