Did I ever tell you about the time when hubby and I were riding his Suzuki 550 on a back road and we flew off the bike over the handle bars? This happened almost 33 years ago when we were first married. Gear or no gear?
A helmet was the only gear we each were wearing. We both landed on our heads but were not seriously hurt. I did have a bad case of road rash across my back which was scrubbed out. >insert< SCREAM!
I happened to catch a news cast last night about a young man’s experience not wearing gear. He experienced a broken back, but should fully recover.
Gear or No Gear?
What about you? Gear or no gear? Me, I’m all in! I learned my lesson all those years ago flying over the handle bars. Helmet – never without. Jacket – I have two. One summer and one for the rest of the riding season. Gloves – protective riding gloves. I mostly commute so I wear jeans, but if ever I would travel far I would definitely buy some riding pants. Shoes with ankle coverage or riding boots.
