Good point....and I too am suprised no one took offense to the statement, which wasn't what I was after to begin with and maybe that is why the limited amount of offense. I guess people just don't know me well enough yet and take everything with a grain of salt. However, there are many options that provide equal protection that don't fall into the poser category.

I took it a bit differently, but maybe I projected my view onto his.

Shaving legs demonstrates commitment, kinda like leathers. When you're shaving your legs, you feel like you need to be a "real" rider, it focuses you. Leathers are the same, when they go on, you feel different and you know it's time to get serious and ride.

Step 1: For the rec/amateur rider, you probably do it because that shows a "serious" level of committment. Sort of the reason some people go out and buy full race leathers/boots/gloves but never spend one day at the track. You just feel more part of the group by looking like part of the fast group.
I can't believe on this board no one has said anything about this.... I for one have full leathers, boots, gloves, and will possibly never see a day at the track, nor be a member of the fast group. Protecting my ass is more important than looking fast. I know you guys are really partial to the track, but there's some of us who aren't so inclined or lucky. Remember, this is the board where full race gear is advised whether racing or not...

Re: Coming out of the closet...

Not a serious biker, but I get out on my MTB 3 or 4 times a week typically. I don't shave, and won't. But I understand it.

Only race I've done was a 24 Hours of Adrenalin at Laguna last year.

Re: Coming out of the closet...

nomad, I'll have you know that I'm "nearly" 5' 6" . But the "nearly 6 decades" part is spot on - thanks for reminding me .

Re: Coming out of the closet...

hehe... he's a hairless garden gnome. Indigenous to Arizona this particular species of Gnome is usually found in gardens or posing around all sorts of two-wheeled cycles. Gnomes vary in size, usually 8 to 14 inches in height but some males have been known to grow upwards of 5'3"... Your typical Gnome's diet consists of mushrooms and fermented grapes, wheat and barley. The age of a Gnome can be determined by the length of his beard or by the smoothness of his legs. Clearly the Gnome depicted above is nearly 6 decades old! Fortunately, Gnome's have a long life span and 6 decades old puts this Gnome in a stage of adolescence.

You sir, are a lying bastard. There isn't a firefighter alive with that amazing lack of anything resembling body fat.
