I was a SQUID in My younger years.Even after laying down my VF700F Intercepter. But as I got older & wiser<??? I have been on this board for a little while because I got back into riding after several yrs outta it. After reading alot of post I decided to get a jacket. I didn't want leather so I got the Fliedsheer Mach 2. My wife has ordered me one for Xmas.Should be here tomorrow as per UPS tracking. I currently have a HJC Street fighter that match my 01 929,am getting Shoei TC-5 Voltage for Bday in April from her to match the 954. You guys convinced me to wear gear.I've been wearing gloves too.Hope I never have to test the gear either ,BUT you never know.
