usual attire around here is only a helmet. and usually a skull cap at that.
i sometimes swear i'm one of the only riders in my area who weathers a leather jacket, gloves, boots, pants and a full face helmet. i remember seeing a bunch of dudes in racing leathers at a dunkin donuts lot meeting up when i was out for a ride. i was blown away by that. other than that i've really only seen less than 5 properly geared up riders in my area, that includes adam who posts in here too.
speaking of gear, my first gloves i used when it was cold last fall/winter when i started riding on the street on the left, and now my current gloves on the right. damn it's cool how much **** changes!
