Need proper motorcycle gear [Apr. 12th, 2009|06:36 pm]
So I threw on my leather jacket and helmet (of course), and got out on a rural highway to check out what it felt like travelling at speed. The bike felt great, my jacket, not so great. It's a lightweight leather jacket, and at that speed it was flapping in the wind like crazy. I could feel it pulling back on me, making me and the bike feel less stable. I imagine a proper fitting motorcycle jacket would make a huge difference at those speeds. Also, I left without my gloves... which was just silly. My fingers are frozen!
