No I would never ride in shorts, I like my skin too much.

no never, seen too many pictures of gravel rash. when its hot I wear perforated leathers.
each too there own though its a free country relatively speaking. I shudder when I see riders with shorts & teeshirts on
I can remember reading an article about a policeman going to a motorcycle accident where the female pillion wasn't wearing
leathers & her shoes came off the start of the accident it started with flesh on the road & turned to white & that was the bone.
thinking of that keeps me covered in cow hide.

I wear shorts in the summer










Then leathers on top
, like wearing no gloves, you can't do anything ( including having a wank on the top deck of a bus ) without the skin on your hands

I like bikes
I like shorts
Sometimes I combine the two

Yep, went on the back of a RX1000 but only cause my leg was in plaster & couldn't wear leathers ;)
