Not sure if itâ€™s a newbie thing or Iâ€™m just a blur squid by nature â€“ but do you guys ever forget to take your gear off, and as a consequence, have people laugh at you occasionally? I came into the office on Friday morning in a suit but had my riding boots on because I was going riding that night (Iâ€™m one of those girls who has their work shoes stored underneath their desks). Anyway, was rushing for a face to face interview and forgot I had the boots on. Didnâ€™t notice it either when I rocked up to Mr Xâ€™s office and I had part of the right leg of my cream slack tucked into the boot. Suffice to say I went beetroot red when he pointed it out and said â€œyouâ€™re a rebel, eh?â€. Other instances also include forgetting to take the helmet off. Iâ€™m not sure why but I tend to park the bike, put the key in my pocket, get my gloves off, and leave my helmet and jacket on. Had a number of occasions when people give me weird looks as I walked a fair way from Peaches with the helmet on, reviewing the ride in my head. :roll: The funny thing is I never used to do this when I was a pillion. Is it a new rider thing? Anyone else do this, or am I just weird?
