I suppose someone under 40 might take umbrage if I stated that attention spans are getting shorter and shorter, or that few now obtain a liberal arts education necessary to produce well rounded citizens with a grasp of history. That would be a generalization. May I point out that the 60s paid lip service to non-conformity. I’m one fifty year old who could care less what cool is. Hell, I wear full gear and got a Nighthawk 250 as my first bike (extreme nerd). I doubt others are much different.
Perhaps someone could really start a war over whether cruiser riders are more likely to go without gear than sport or standard riders. That should be good for some pithy exchanges.
