I have never shaved my legs, (wish I had when I had my bad crash and sustained severe road rash). I have thought about it though. And I understand that the reason behind shaving is to help prevent complications due to road rash in the event of a crash.
But is it necessary to shave your legs if you ride a 'bent? I have yet to have a severe crash on my 'bent where road rash would be a result of it. Anyone ever experience road rash after crashing on a 'bent? I suppose it is possible but since you are lower to the ground and "in" the bike rather then on it, isn't the danger of road rash not as much as it would be on a wedgie?
