Has anyone here ever been refused entry because you were wearing motorcycle gear? I ask cos on Friday night i went to the Waterside Hotel to say hi to a few mates. Was a warm night but given I had to ride through the city to get there, I still wore my jacket and gloves etc. Got to the front door with my leather jacket on (shift m1), pair of jeans, motorbike boots (all black) and helmet in hand and the guy at the front door says "sorry bud but i dont thing biking attire is appropriate here". Now most people were wearing jeans and t-shirts, thongs and shorts even. I argued with him for a minute and he eventually let me in but said if he saw me wearing my jacket he would throw me straight out. Ignoring the fact that it was 30 odd degrees at the time and i had no intention of walking around the beer garden with a thick heavy leather jacket on, where does he get off telling me that i cant wear a jacket?! It doesnt even look that different from any other jackets out there! Non motorbike ones i mean. I can understand that some places have a dress code with shoes and collars or shirts etc but this place was very casual. As i said, guys with thongs and shorts etc. Anyone else here ever had grief trying to get into places wearing your bike gear? I dunno, maybe im being a bit sensitve but it kinda pissed me off on friday!
