Squids on Scooters

Since buying a helmet, I have started to notice every bike on the road. We have these stupid moped/scooters that no one seems to wear a helmet on, but most bikers I have seen have one on. Well…excluding two nights ago when I was driving home from work at 2:15 AM in pouring rain (hard enough to even get a speed demon like me to slow down), and a guy blew by my doing at least 70 (speed limit is 50), no helmet, tank top, shorts and sneakers. Oh wait, he had back protection…a tiny BACKPACK. He was weaving through cars, and all I could think is “thats gonna hurt when one doesn’t see you…”
Anyways, no one seems to wear protection out here. Sport bikers wear helmets for the most part, but cruiser guys (exp. Harley guys) stick with bandanas and glasses. Dumb.July 25, 2008 at 3:02 am #9267BuddParticipant
He was speeding because he was miserable in the rain and wanted to get home. Another advantage of ATGATT is that my gear is waterproof. That unexpected shower isn’t so bad.

I never could get lady riders. Oh, wait. You mean mentally understand them. That is different.

You beat me to it. I was going to say exactly the same thing.
Being cold and/or wet makes you ride faster (it’s true).
