Watch your mirrors

In the shed
1999 ST1100A
1971 CB750K2
1980 XV750
1977 GL1000

So at what age does this "old enough to know better" kick in?
I believe in the "hereafter", every time I go to the shed I have to think "what am I here after"

The best evidence in support of full safety/protective clothing when riding.

The question is how to get this message to those in shorts and thongs/jandles.

There should be a condition in insurance policies to only cover those with protective clothing. Ignorance is one thing but defiance should not be rewarded.

There are already too many reasons Insurance Companies will try to wriggle out of paying out.
The lack of "Protective clothing" shouldn't be one of them...well, that's my humble opinion anyhow...after all, they are covering the "bike", not the rider...

You're only required, by law, to wear a helmet... :thumb
