I always wear a helmet (3/4), long jeans & a T shirt and work boots.
i have been asked many times"don't you wish you didn't have to wear a helmet".
i want my helmet!!
most people are surprised at my answer but i think they don't ride.
bad enough i wear a half helmet ,jean shorts and sneakers all the time but i got my hands planted on the bars.
had to avoid animals on the back roads and locked it up a couple times in low speed zones due to people pulling out in front of me.
i have no doubt i wouldn't have been able to do these things with one hand.
we all take chances every day we ride.
proper gear is my dice gamble but i am in control of my bike always.
I may ride with 1 hand on the highway, with light traffic.
As soon as a vehicle is within a hundred yards both hands are in the grips.
Around here, the only ppl I see with a hand on hip are riding Donor cycles.
