Hey, are you sending that to me miles? OK, I know I should wear all the gear, I know this, but on an 85 degree day like today, it's hard. And I truly believe a trike is no exception, they don't slide, they roll on top of you. Good video, I will make that effort to ride appropriately.:)

Great Video. I've passed it on to my t-shirt Harley riding buddies, who tease me not only for riding the Wing but the helmet and jacket too.

Which brings me to the wave thing :waving:most Harley guys, not wearing helmets won't wave at the Wings, whereas the ones that do-will! I'd rather be safe than macho.

Very good Bob, thanks for posting that. Check out my avatar. That's me on one of my drag bikes. My bikes are nitrous injected and most of the quarter mile is done with the front wheel in the air. Well, oil+front wheel in the air= not good! I went down, and slid over 330 feet down the track. (don't ask how I know that)Friction bad. Lets just put it this way things get hot really fast and asphalt isn't soft.

If you ride long enough you will go down and the more miles we put on, the greater our chances are.My leathers, helmet (and angel) saved my life that day. The streets that we ride on are more dangerous thanany race track.

Firmbeliever in protection and thanks for putting that out there. Maybeseeing that will make someone re-think aboutnot wearing any.

I'm going to try to wear my leather jacket all the time, as in the summer I have been known to do without it. The truth is; you just never know.

Great video, and watching those guys "off" their bikes makes me wonder what my own "off experience" looked like.

65 mph on the freeway. No broken bones or burned skin.
The helmet was pulled off my head, but other than that,
I'm okay.

Good protection gear just simply cannot be stressed enough in advance. Hot weather is no excuse. Buy the type of gear that will allow you to ride in hot weather.

Great video, I wear my gear ALL the time, It is hard to not when you see all the other bikers riding "Naked" in the summer tho. I actually feel like I left something home if I don't have my helmet on (Very Rarely) Ride Safe
