Starting to see a few people riding in flip flops for f@cks sake  :125: It's reached epic proportions for car drivers these days which is stupid but on a bike (a Versys no less, I kid you not) it's downright ridiculous and is one of my may pet hates. Mesh jacket for me and no fairing helps on most UK summer days (not had many this year), Kevlar jeans, perforated leather gloves and short boots (may need to rethink those after some of the previous comments).

Well, we can go back and forth about it, but at least we are thinking about it, and good on us.

For me, ATGATT takes discipline as I am one of those odd men out who has never chipped a fingernail on a motorcycle. But it hasn't been all skill or good sense; there has been more than one double helping of luck in the mix...
