There is a group of photographers that hang out on a certain corner in the Deals Gap area to film dorks crashing. According to them even blue jeans don't hold up in a crash. All I ever hear is about is the ER nurse scrubbing wounds with a brush to get all the little rocks out. I'll keep my pants on thank you.
Can I ask a question? Why so hostile and defensive man? No one was attacking you directly, heck no one knows that you don't ride with gear until you volunteered that info. Are you just trolling and trying to bait people, or do you have a legitimate, defensible position that you would like to argue?
No matter what, I hope you find this place as much of a sanctuary as a lot of the rest of us do
