Maybe that should be decafe tea that you switch to. Having hit the pavement late last year I would have to say that from my point of view I would not want to be "rolling" down the road after a fall. I wanted and did stop as soon as possible and scramble out of the way of traffic. Also due the nature of pavement (Nooks and Crannies), you would need wheels of a decent size to be of any use in rolling over such obstacles. A suit or even just a jacket would need to have a stiff platform configuration to prevent any sagging of the rider's body contours from touching the pavement that may cause drag while rolling. I am not sure such riding apparel would be very comfortable or allow enough movement to steer and do all the other things necessary while riding a motorcycle.
It is an interesting thought but I would rather rip some leather than be rolling down the road similar to a street luge in traffic and out of control.
I am glad that we have met before and emailed numerous times as I would not want this to be my first encounter with you. lol!
and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"
**Really not sure if the Big "C" is back right now
but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.
