wear your gear! even though its super hot right now

lately i'm seeing people ride with just helmets

in mopeds, sport bikes etc

what happens when you fall or get into accident. wearing plain t-shirt + shorts will make you never want to ride again

Haha, drove past kits beach today saw so many helmet + sleeveless + shorts + sandal riders :O

I was almost tempted to take off my jacket and put it in my bag and ride home sweat free but my judgement got the better of me

Whenever I see a squid, I hope to fall and then they will learn. But there lots of douche bags that need to show off without gear.

I am very tempted to buy a chest/back protector and ride with it over a t-shirt and gloves. Won't protect everything, yet sure better than nothing. It is sooooooooo hot!

That's a terrible attitude. I don't hope anyone falls, I've seen what road rash looks like and it sucks.

I don't think they are showing off, just lazy, risky, too hot, or not caring as much for their personal safety.

I did see one thing that made me sick, and I thought was awesome at the same time. Hot asian chick on the back of a bike wearing only a bikini and helmet. So hot... yet so wrong. No pics

In this temperature, no one wants to wear a full suit on but I'll wear the jacket / helmet / and gloves. Should be adequate on normal streets.

I took a gamble and rode 10 minutes in just t-shirt and shorts to get my bike fixed this morning. Felt so good, but then I'm definitely gonna wear a jacket gloves helmet and boots on my longer ride later today.
But I can see why ppl would go with t-shirt and shorts, just sooooo much more comfortable

I got one of these http://www.alpinestars.com/Bionic_2_.../p/650658.html and even riding in it is very, very hot. I was tempted to ride in shorts and my leather boots but was laughed at before getting out of the house so am still wearing armored textile pants. Gloves are the worst when you have to taken them off to fill up and too sweaty to put back.

No need to carry the camera anymore since I cannot post on BCSB.

That's exactly what I was looking at. One of the guys who makes the Mon Squamish rides wears something similar over a hoodie.

What gloves are you wearing? My teknic violators are pretty sweet in this weather, and they are a full gauntlet too.

I have 3 pairs that was promised to me to be waterproof. "Shift?" not, "FrankThomas" not anymore, "RubberSideDown" haven't tried in the rain yet. I should look into the 'teknic violators' ....I'm going to change the name on those gloves if I decide to get them though. :laughing

The violators are certainly not waterproof, yet vent really well for this weather.
