not a good way to wake up on a Monday...

I'm guessing this is a dude? I don't think I want to click the link.
I don't understand how riding around in pair of bikini drawers crammed up your ass is more comfortable than biker shorts.....

Now that they got a bike for him, safety gear would be the next logical contribution. Meh.
Oh, maybe not. Since reading to the bottom of the article and seeing that he wears a good luck charm, there's no need to consider safety precautions. Silly me.
(That's just wrong.)
if you actually read the article, see the video, there's alot more to this. good for him. and his fans. better a bike, too, than a moped or hog...
I, for one, agree completely, although he just looks so vulnerable. The horror stories about riding in FLA around cagers are just that, horror.
Sad in so many levels................
Arguing with ignorant people is an exercise in futility. They will bring you down to their level and once there they will beat you with their overwhelming experience.
i do think, with a facebook page and many local fans (now), that he definitely has some folks keeping an eye on him. i hope.
i love that he could care less what others thought of him!
I understand that in Florida the car drivers are aggressive and always say the don't see the bikers. Well I imagine this guy get "seen" very easily, and I would go out of my way to give him more than 3ft of passing room. So he may be on to something here. In our normal lives so many things are brightly colored and half armored that we ignore them (read your average bike rider there). So a mostly naked older gentleman would still be considered extraordinary and spotted easily. I think his only crash concerns should be from road debris.
I was sooo dissappointed. Guess I will read the whole thread before I click the vid next time.
