Hi guys. I haven't ridden in 20yrs or so, but I still look at biking from time to time..

What do y'all think of this:

You mean sandals, shorts, and a t-shirt aren't proper riding gear?

Riding in the winter, I've got so many layers on that I feel like that guy after his airbagjacket deployed. Does that count?

I always seemed to do better when I fell off the thing in the winter..

Not until they offer full-body protection. I want to look like the Stay-Puft Marshmallow man when my airbag suit goes off!

The only time I would be found on a motorcycle is after I have been diagnosed with a terminal illness; I know my own tendencies for speed. There is nothing wrong with bikes, it would be the loose nut on the seat and the incredible capability of the machine. The air bag jacket is brilliant, it just wouldn't keep me from becoming a statistic!

I was wondering what something like that would cost. Couldn't you buy a complete set of racing leathers with the Kevlar & a back protector for about $400?
