    Two things about that:

    A statement is different than an inference.

    And you have made only 5 posts on here.......and already you are "calling out" another user based on an inference.

    What do you think I might assume from those facts ??

    Is it OK to eat chocolate in the hot tub? Of course it's *OK* but the real question is, is it smart and/or safe? There's this concept of PPE; Personal Protective Equipment that's more than just a helmet.

    Wear what you want. I have owned 3 Spyders the past 3 years and rarely wear anything but shorts. I live in Florida and itís extremely hot, shorts are by the far the coolest for me. I personally have never come close to wrecking or eating pavement but I understand that day could come at anytime. Pants simply arenít worth it to me. I also donít care what others think so roll out with shorts and enjoy yourself. You will find out the biking community has many opinions but riding in full gear when itís 100 plus heat index isnít in the cards for me. Not worth having my Spyder if thatís the case. Most of the riders I see around here have shorts on anyways. Must be a Duuuuvvvvaaaallll thing.. Go Jags.. Out

    A touchy subject and many opinionated people. It is okay to express your opinion...that is what the site is for. It is NOT necessary to jump on someone whose opinion you don't agree with.

    The moderators are watching the posts more close now. One who is on a final chance needs to be a bit careful. You are at the "no further warning" stage now.

    Riding with shorts because of the weather, etc. is for sure a personal choice. Me...I would not do it. Since I have moved to AR from AK, I mostly am wearing shorts because of the hot temps.

    That said, our bikes will not arrive for a couple weeks yet. When they get here, my plan is to be ATGATT as much as necessary. I have Kevlar lined jeans, but may end up going mesh before to long.

    Most of the people we see on bikes here, and there are a lot of them, ride with shorts, short sleeves (or less), no helmets, gloves, or boots. Flip flops seem to be popular. We have heard of two bad accidents since our arrival in late May.

    When we rented in Hawaii, it was mid 90's that day. Off came the jackets, but we had jeans, helmets, and fingerless gloves.

    Choices, choices, choices.
