Dear men of Britain,
Since the weather in the UK has turned warm, many of you seem to have switched to your motorcycles for transportation. I am fully in support of this, especially if it means you have abandoned you automobiles. However, I am baffled when I see you walking around my town in your motorcycling leather trousers. I would think that such gear would be inconsistent with the warm weather–are you not sweating in all of that knee-padded leather? Not to mention the addition of matching leather jackets. I am perplexed by your wearing this gear when shopping or wandering around my town, do you wear it every day? How do you clean it? I am also somewhat perplexed by the need to wear such fancy padded gear, are you taking turns like Valentino Rossi such that your knees might drag on the ground? In the US, I seem to recall most bikers wearing jeans, are they missing out on something, or are you slaves to your own brand of biker fashion? Just wondering. Many thanks for any insight you could provide.
