Lame poseurwear. Fagstyle. Gay. Ghey.

No offense to those who like it up the poop chute. Where is the leather whip and the bossy large breasted blonde Dominitrix wench when we need her? She would love this sh*t.



If this catches on, the end is truly near.

I'm sure they will be everywhere in the next skanks on tanks calendar.

I don't know about the pinnacle, that's reserved for handlebar end tassles.

I even hated them on bicycles when I was a youngun'.

And I REALLY hate them on exotic dancers.

truly a poseur design, however...

- gay-bashing isn't the way to communicate that. (like I'm one to talk, but at least I don't do it behind a computer...that's pretty weak... if you're gonna gay-bash at least be a MAN and do it to peoples' faces)

- re: you alluding to neon-yellow riding suits as poor fashion... i agree... however, there are some of us who know that no amount of riding skill will prevent the cell-phone talking SUV driving pig from haphazardly turning into you, or smacking you in some way because they were too busy yapping and not paying attention to the focking road.

that nasty yellow riding suit saves lives. (i don't have one... yet)

in other words, you're an idiot and a coward mr. "staff", but i do agree those arm chaps belong in a dumpster.

I guess it takes all kinds of folks to make an intresting world. I don't have much use for this kind of crap myself, rates right up there with such new modern ideas as body piercing, and tatoos. Another way for us all to express our individuality together. Don't it make you all warm and fuzzy feeling!!!!!

Re:

1) Lighten up? Then why did you reply? Perhaps, my message irked you? Maybe I SHOULD lighten up; but if that is the case, so should you, since you've taken the time to reply to my public criticism. :)

2) So let me get this straight... you're telling me with a straight face and a clear conscience that when you were choosing the words to describe this accessory, referring to it as the "pinnacle of gayness" had no negative connotation WHATSOEVER?

If that is the case, I apologize... sincerely.

However, we both know that is not the case, so this apology is pointless and unwarranted. (unless of course you can prove otherwise)

Being that you decided to use these words, please explain why you chose them to describe this accessory.

Because I am of rather low intelligence, please explain in excruciating detail how these fringed leather arm accessories are "gay", "homoerotic", or flaming?

Is it something a homosexual man or woman would wear? Do you sincerely believe that is what a homosexual man/woman would find pleasing to the eye? And if that is your belief, how exactly would you know such a fact?

Perhaps you're still exploring yourself?

If you truly are staff, I would then assume you consider yourself a journalist. And as a journalist, I'm sure you understand that what you write will in all likelihood never please the wide spectrum of public opinion, and therefore you will be criticized. So, why does my comment bother you?

Finally, I say coward, because

you have no personal userid for which a reader can directly attribute your words to.

Anyone and everyone sees my userid: rider_md... I don't know if my email is on my page, but I figure if you're so upset about it, you, being staff, can look my info up on the profile I submitted when I subscribed, and perhaps have it out with me on a personal basis?

So who's the coward Mr. "Staff"?

Interesting how you modified your original reply to my post.



In any case, your modified reply is far less inflammatory so I'll just pretend your first reply never existed.



So I'll address both of your questions:



1) Perhaps I should lighten up this '03? But if that is the case, you should consider doing the same, since in your original reply you returned the insult of "cowardly idiot". Obviously, my post irked you, or you would never have taken the time to reply.



2) "Whoever said being gay was bad?"



That's a very interesting question.



So let me get this straight. Are you meaning to tell me, with a straight face and clear conscience, that you had no negative connotations in your mind when choosing the words to describe this particular accessory?



Furthermore, as I am of rather low intelligence, please explain to me in EXCRUCIATING detail as to exactly why and how these accessories are "gay", "homoerotic", or flaming?



Specifically, are you meaning to tell the readers of MO that you believe this is what the entire homosexual community would be pleased to wear when riding a motorcycle? So you think this accessory is pleasing to the eye of a homosexual man / woman?



And how exactly did you come to this conclusion?



Seeing how claim your description wasn't negative, since being "gay" isn't negative...

Perhaps, you found these accessories pleasing to YOUR eye?



Perhaps you're confused about your own orientation?



In any case, finally, my userid is posted with what I write, so I am at least SOMEWHAT accountable for what I write... what about you? Oh yeah, journalists don't have to be accountable for what they write... my bad.

rider_md, you do make some valid points - but they're a bit difficult to take seriously. For starters, you seem to contradictory and hypocritical when criticizing MO staff about hiding behind computers, and then resort to calling them derogatory names. Secondly, have you ever poked fun at any segment of the population, including those to which you may claim membership? We've all done silly things that have provided a good laugh for others. Doesn't matter whether you're white, black, straight, gay, Jewish, Muslim, fat, skinny, etc - it's certain that you and others in your "special interest group" exhibit traits that others find humorous - and you in turn probably find some of their traits humorous, so what's the BFD?!! We can laugh at others, and we can laugh at ourselves - it's good for us all. So I agree - lighten up. Far too many people take themselves far too seriously - this only serves one purpose: To take the FUN out of life. Go ahead and laugh at me if you want - I know I'm not necessarily right - but I may be happier. Cheers.

These will be popular during bike week. When you are riding around in shorts and tank top or a bikini, with no helmet, you don't want to get road rash on your forearms when you crash. They could call them "handless gloves", much more macho than regular gloves. Just need some footless boots to go with them so you can still have some fringe flapping in the wind when you ride with flip flops.

I give you the Highwayman.

Since I know where this HighwayMoron hangs out, I figured I would give you MO readers another sampling of his madness. This one fits like a glove! No pun intended.

Copied and pasted for your enjoyment!

Time to take stock of this essential garb for biking in America. The real Harley biker knows all about it.

By a man’s boots you can read deep into his character and see his resolve to do things his way, the right way, the only way. On a Harley, boots precede the rest of the biker, leading the charge of steel and leather thundering down the highway. Off the bike, a Harley rider’s boots still serve a noble purpose as they are his roots to the earth and his foundation for taking a stand on all issues that define a real American.

Boots are also the only part of Harley riders seen by posers and wannabes, who are too gutless to raise their sights any higher in the presence of a real biker. As the wannabes cower and tremble at the sight of Harley boots, they secretly wish they were man enough to fill them. Needless to say, a Harley rider’s boots state their case silently, ‘less of course someone be so dense the boots need teach a lesson or two.

Gloves also tell a story. A Harley rider’s fist in the air is accorded a reverent respect by all who know the traditions and values he stands for. Other hand signals from Harley riders have led Americans to heroic achievements for untold decades. And the greatest honor any biker can have is another Harley rider raising his hand in a salute of recognition.

Most times a Harley rider will find that fingerless gloves are best, as they allow a tight rein on the machine but also a bare-knuckled grappling of adversity. Then there are times of courage and resolve when a Harley rider controls his throttle and the men he leads with a full gauntlet.

The boots and gloves worn by a rider of a Harley-Davidson are among the most important expressions of who he is, and not just because they do the talking from time to time.

It’s because they’re along for the ride every time.

They call me ... The Highwayman

sheesh....the wife wants me to put fringe on the clutch and brake levers. I had to tell her, "I love you honey but it's a fringeless bike, it's in the owner's manual, sorry".



I wouldn't call them gay, just incredibly "poseur-ish".
