Do any of you ride your trike as a primary vehicle? If so, how do you handle the transition from safety gear to street clothes? What safety gear do you wear when going to meet a friend for dinner, for example? I can't imagine that changing in a bathroom is always an option, lol.

All I can figure is like when Megan Fox, in Transformers 2, takes off her jacket and pulls off her jeans to let what looked like her top extend to a dress.

Any tips? How do we keep our sexy?!? 8)

Hi Dezzie
Im just a newbie ...and only drive my scooter for pleasure... but I love the leather look.. personally.

A few weeks ago, when I drove my scooter to a neighboring town, Rusk, Tx to get it inspected... my man drove a truck and followed me. I was in leather... I carried in my helmet and wore my leather jacket, boots and chaps... he was in normal hick- country boy clothes ... LOL Several customers were confused as we walked in - you know...the reversal roll.. but they all had smiles on their faces (men and women) at the roll exchange (woman in leather thing while man isn't ...) while at a pizza hut ... lol it was fun! I was thinking I wish I owned a leather neck choker with spikes on it Wha? emoticon ... lol

Enjoy! Nerd emoticon

I wear Bohn Armor underneath my jeans. You cannot tell that I even have them on.
If I don't have the Bohn Armor, then I will wear the Icon strap on knee/shin protector called Field Armor. When i get to where I am going, I can easily take them off and put them in my top box or under the seat.
I always have a jacket/gloves/helmet on too. These items can be put in the top box or seat. Or, just take them in with you to work.


Edit to add that I also wear Icon boots. They are stylish enough that I just leave them on. No need to swap out for other shoes.

I know where to get ALL the good toys!
And, I don't loan out my spiked leather collar to just anyone. Ponydrvr and Stickyfrog are the only two that I have allowed the wearing of the collar. And they had to be REAL good boys....
