It was amazing to see on Sunday afternoon, that down blackburn road between Templestowe and Glen Waverley out of the 15 riders I saw along the way (it's amazing how keen your eye gets when you're wanting a bike) 11 of them were wearing T-shirts. It seems like as soon as the mercury hits 25 out comes the bike (probably hasn't been touched since last summer) but they seem to have forgotten about the gear. This included a guy in shorts and thongs, and a dude in a T-shirt with holes in his jeans with a girl as pillion wearing the tiniest singlet top I've seen in a while (I know, hot girls on bikes...). Another two were coming off the freeway. Not sure I'd like to go for a slide on my bare back at 100km/h. I guess the plastic surgeons will be kept busy over summer as ususal grafting skin onto these grazed up monkeys.
