We had alot of riders around here that ride like that. Guess they figure they will never go down. They make fun of me for riding with a jacket and gloves. My wife rides with the kitty icon suit, thats the only way she feels safe. She learned the hard way when she was little. Riding with her dad and he laid it down to miss a truck. One of my bos had his 04 gsxr1000 totaled by a squid. Shorts, tank top, flip fops and no gloves. Was smart enough to wear a helmet. He forgot to turn in a sharp turn. Bike total loss, broke face shield, and he walks away without a scratch.
