Vote here!

Since the polls appear on the front page, I have to limit the options.

IMO, if ur not gonna wear a helmet, you may as well just go out in, Tshirt, mesh shorts and flip flops.

I'm almost always geared from head to toe simply because of my average distance per ride. The occassion I'm making a 10mi jaunt, I'll dispense with the pants.

I'm politically incorrect here...If I am going for a ride, I gear up...Otherwise my lid is the only equipment every time out...Yes, I wear shorts and a T shirt to go get a newspaper or to go for a coffee, or to stop by Walgreens...I even wore my tennis shoes on a beer run once. I know the risks every time I let the clutch out, but sometimes I am too stupid to care...need stronger meds

I see you are attending the same english classes as Bulldog... But after years of experience, you learn how to carry a case of beer in a bike. It's called saddlebags and a backpack!!
