That is the thing about a lot of bikers out there. And who can blame them? Apart from the usual speed, it is part of the thrill. Or is it the rush? Bikers with the best cc fabrications you can think of and with some of the most famous road icons, love to look the part. It must be leather. It is part of the thrill of looking and feeling tough and cool on the highways and open country roads. But pretty much all motorcycle apparel comes dressed in leather. But there it is. No pie in the sky and it is a blessing in disguise to rev up your engine.
There you go in your stylish new bomber jacket, looking all rugged like a real war veteran. While it is making you look like a real menace on the roads, it is also keeping you safe. And if it keeping you safe, its keeping others on the road safe too. Fingers crossed that they are doing exactly the same thing as you. You may be able to travel at high speeds but you still need to stick to the rules of the road. These days, traveling on the busy roads is a lot more dangerous for bikers than it would be for sheltered sedan or SUV drivers.
You are openly exposed to a lot more of the road’s hazards. But at least the leather is getting you there and back in one piece. It is even helping you out once you hit the sidewalk in your leather boots. It’s that tough, rugged look you see. They see you, and no one’s going to dare to touch you. They had better be sure of that. And you had better be sure and safe too.
