Is denim better than spandex?

Recommended Posts

 

There's a lot of things I don't understand about the TdF crowd,  If that was a DRZ, dust yourself off and go.

denim, spandex, slacks, suits = worthless in a crash, no matter what vehicle was used to propel the body. 

 

even though leathers can provide a lot of abrasion resistance, they will still lead to burns, sometimes third degree, on large portions of skin. 

 

 

 

if you're just taking a jab at cyclists, well, that's sad. there are PLENTY of harley owners to pick on. cyclists actually ride

I think the general perception to bicycles is... it's a BICYCLE, how hurt could I get.  Now a motorcycle is DEADLY! :goofy:  I've left more skin on the pavement riding a bicycle than I ever have a motorcycle... knock on wood :smashpc:   Personally I gear up like crazy when riding motorcycles, but chose to wear basically zero when biking (old habits).

If you Google "road rash treatment" most of the hits are bicycle related.
