I did remove my seat bolts, 10 years ago. But I have the extended backrest, and the pad holds the seat nicely in place. I bought a new tool box lid, and no longer open it for anything.
I do wear a full face helmet, not only for protection, but because it is more comfortable. No thanks on the FULL protective clothing, I'm not the ATGATT type. I bundle up if it is cold enough. If I had to wear a full moon suit for every ride, I wouldn't ride. Many of my rides, even several hundred mile ones, are done on the spur of the moment, when the mood strikes me. If I had to go through the ritual of putting on 50 pounds of armor everytime, I'd be out of the mood before I got done. And what do you do when you decide to stop at some eating place? I'm not going in wearing a space suit. NOT putting it down, just NOT for me.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
