Gloves just seem so much easier. Open the seat, attach harness, close seat.
I guess it worked ok for you then?Oh that's simple. An orchidectomy will set you right up.
And you can even use the remains for fish bait!
You used Seatbelts back in the early '70s? Man, what was wrong with you?Back in the day (early 70s) we used to use a very advanced technology to keep ourselves from being branded by vinyl seats on a hot summer day. We called it- the Towel®. We draped the Towel® over our bench seats and climbed in with impunity. Of course we then slapped our seatbelts on and screams erupted as we writhed in agony as the GM emblem was seared into our youthful hides.
Good times, they were. Good times.
My gloating is over. It's going to be close to freezing here tonight. Unlike some of our pals here, riding in anything under 60F is out of the question for me. My blood is way to thin... However, by the end of the week, we should be back to at least 70 or so.Yo Ken,
The !Kung tribe (the ones who speak in clicks and clacks) of Southern Africa has a cool term for the young men of their tribe. They call them "shade experts".
Anyway, I was just being snarky and jealous about the idea of 90 degree temperatures. It gets that hot here. It happens at least once a century.
I think a few of those umbrella girls from Moto GP races are the true solution.
You Florida guys just can't deal with temps that the rest of the states have to deal with, huh? It's going to be in the high teens tonight and it won't get above 50 until Sunday. 1 good leather jacket, pair of thermo undies and my Alpinestar Drystars and who needs the heated grips at that point? Everytime I turn my heated grips on my hands are sweating within 20mins. Seems like a nice add-on but for me they just aren't worth wet hands. Too many good "cold" gloves out there to choose from. Anyway- hope all of y'all are having a great New Year so far. Ken- call when it's warm enough to ride. ;-)My gloating is over. It's going to be close to freezing here tonight.

Winston tastes Good, like a Cigarette Should!The seatbelts on old cars sure did leave a lot to be desired. I loved the separate lap belt/shoulder (neck?) belt arrangement that many cars had.
If the seatbelts didn't get you then the metal dashboard certainly would.
On the upside the cigarette lighters on 70's cars would work underwater, so at least you could enjoy a healthy unfiltered camel or two as the water ominously swirled around your waist. You could struggle against the inevitable, but why bother? Those camels sure were smooth...
