I dont see why its such a big deal to everyone that you have to have full riding gear. When i ride i just wear a helmet and gloves, But when i ride i dont do anything stupid. Sometimes i like to go fast in a straight line but thats about it. Now if i was to start riding wheelies, stunting, and taking corners like a racer then i would def wear full gear. But mostly i bought a bike to cruise around and get from point a to point b. It would be really stupid if i were to go to the store, movies, anywhere showing up in full riding gear. What do you guys think?
