Would you ride in this jersey?

This is on scambay right now. Would you ride with this jersey on your back? Or maybe a better question is would your mate let you ride wearing it!

No, a bit over the top for me. Guess I'm just too conservative sometimes. Howver, I wouldn't object if someone else wanted to wear it!

It might cause DG to crash into me. On the other hand, I might be crazy enought to ride in this:

I don't think it captures the spirit of the poster with only showing a few ladies... and is it cut/paste as it just doesn't look right.

So, in other words, no... but I'm not opposed to the idea of promoting the particular album.

Depends on what's on the backside and if it's the right size.

No. If I were wearing it I couldn't look at it. Just once in my life I'd like to be on location when they take these photographs...

Edit: I'm not a perv, I just appreciate fine photography.

I'd buy it for a riding partner

j/k I'd wear it.... but wouldn't spend a ton on it. Also wouldn't go out of my way to get it.

Depends on whether you like other riders in extreme proximity to you.

No I would not be caught dead in the thing. Men have a bad enough reputation without making things worse. It would be like wearing a "kick me" sign on my bicycle shorts.

No. Too much porno out there as it is.

I once ordered a "Global Warming" jersey. It had a mushroom cloud from a nuclear detonation. It was cool. Unfortunately, it had a black skull and crossbones on the back which my wife said can be interpreted as a neo-Nazi symbol, so back the jersey went.

Sure. Why not? There's not a politically correct bone in my body.
But I'd rather have the person I'm following wear it.

No I wouldn't. But it would be a lot better than me wearing no jersey at all.

I think this is the first time I've read that term in this century. I wonder if post baby boomers even know what it refers to.

EDIT: Not disputing you alicestrong. Just thinking about the mindset among those in the Britney-Lindsay-Paris generation.
