I believe in wearing your gear... BUT
with the exception of my full face helmet, today I rode without it. No boots, no jacket, no gloves, no riding pants. Tee shirt, jeans and sneaks.... just like every other dude I see. You know what? I LIKED IT.... A LOT!! I felt like a kid doing something wrong... like stealing booze from the old man's liquor cabinet.
I had to make a quick shot to the store and didn't feel like assembling myself, so that's how it happened. I don't know if it will happen again, but it could. Yes... it sure could.
