  The Ambulance Guy Said Leather is Good

This picture is some random squid I saw last Friday. I'm sure it feels great to ride in a tank top, but it's a huge risk. The day after I took this photo I went on a group ride on Angeles Crest Highway. An emergency medical technician started talking to me at the gas station, imploring me to ride safely that day. Another lady chimed in, "Well, look at all that protection he's got on," referring to my leathers. The EMT, who regularly scrapes fallen motorcycle riders off the pavement on ACH, pointed out that leathers make a huge difference in avoiding injuries in a fall. He cringes when he sees anyone riding in a t-shirt.
