    OUCH!!! no gloves??? you go down and your gonna have to mod the grips for hooks...
  4. i only wear my gloves at night or when its cold.

    blue is faster up until what....48ish mph? :D only like 350 miles or so left though right? then itll be like 65-70ish for another couple hundred miles :)
  5. Trust me, when you grind your fingers down to the knuckle, you'll want those gloves...and it'll be too late. At LEAST wear mesh gloves...Firstgear makes good ones.

    And boots..get decent boots. Sneakers just aren't enough, if the inevitable happens. Trust me.

    As an EMT years an' years ago, I responded to more than a few 'biker down' calls, and quite a lot of them involved riders not wearing the proper gear/clothing. Everything from simple roadrash (it's never really "simple") to amputated limbs, cuncussions, broken bones..the works.

    Get the gear. It's worth it.

    That includes Idaho and the no helmet law. Yesss... I know I did it the other night during bike night... tisk tisk... but on the same EMAT note... I had to call our chief and ask how to get rid of chunks of hair, brains, and shreds of skin out of trees and off the road. It's not something you screw around with.

    that's dirty, man.
  13. how much of an effort is it to wear gloves? you burn like what...2 calories doing it. You waste more energy starting your bike then you do putting on gloves
  14. I second this and can relate as a current emt

    i can ride faster when i'm in gear. when you got leathers on your subconsciously not so scared, or something. all i need now is a spine protector and to sew my leathers so they zip together and i'll be golden.
  17. my gloves restrict my hands so i cant feel the throttle as well and my shifts are shittier or something i dunno i cant explain it.
