ATGATT - even traveling within the fairgrounds at Bloomsburg last year, my then boyfriend didn't want me on the bike without it!! I went around my block a few weeks ago without anything on and felt like I was breaking the law, even though I technically wasn't!!
I commute almost every day to work (50 miles R/T) and I have to say I don't wear my custom ear plugs on the commute. Everywhere else, I do.
I have to say that I am surprised by the posts on this thread. I've always been under the impression that BMW riders are more the ATGATT crowd than not? So it seems among our own, about 1/3 of us are not? Hmmm..maybe a poll would have been good, but it does seem that there are a lot of versions of gear so it wouldn't have been a cut and dry answer!!
