Saddle Bums Ocean County Team Six Special Correspondent and token curmudgeon Tom Pritchard weighs in with his favorite motorcycle gear. Opinions expressed here are not necessarily those of Saddle Bums:
1) Suomy makes the most comfortable full-faced helmet ever made. I have had Bell, Shoei, Nolan, Arai and an HJC flip up that kept falling apart and none have been as comfortable as Suomy, and I am secure enough with my masculine side not to let the gold and orange flower motif bother me. (I believe he’s referring to the Soumy Vandal helmet here — SB).
2) Wrap your grips with Gamma AHTGL Hi-Tech Gel tennis gel grips. Easy to install, weatherproof and oh so comfy.
3) I hate Harley dipshits with plastic yamakas with stupid stickers, leather chaps, no mufflers and personality disorders. I mounted a bicycle bell on my Moto Guzzi and when they stop next to me at traffic lights I ring it and give them a hearty wave. Every fuckin’ dentist and CPA thinks he’s in the Sons of Anarchy.
