All the Gear All the Time? WHY?

In TweeterWorld, we would call this a retweet. But this is worth everyone posting...

After working on his Ninja this weekend, Bill Dwyer (Atlas Rider), longtime rider and ATGATT advocate from the Phoenix valley area, decided to take it on a test run around parking lot of his apartment complex.

And before you send my your sarcastic comments about why AGATT is for sissies, watch his video, look at his hands, face, and legs and consider that he has been riding motorcycles for four years and thousands of miles. No matter what your skill level and no matter how many years you have in the saddle, it can happen to anyone in a moments notice.

Dear Mr. Madding:

I wouldn't think of riding my rig around the block without pursuing the ATGATT philosophy. Last season, I pulled out of the driveway, suited up in the body armor, and rtealized I wasn't wearing my gloves. This felt so odd, tha I pulled over right away and put them on.

ATTGAT: because Kevlar is cheaper than plastic surgery.

Fondest regards,
